“Delicioso!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

In general, we did not find the Panama food tasty, BUT this place was awesome! The fish tacos were fresh and flavorful, and the margaritas were great. The atmosphere is beautiful, with the outdoor seating area covered in flora and fauna (well, chickens). We loved it!

“Yum”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Tell you what, 'fish tacos' never really sounded too appealing to me before but after these reviews I thought I ought to give them a try. They were delicious, the fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned and came with 3 little pots of accompaniments to add. Good portion size and a delicious lemonade.. I think we'll be back soon :)

Thank you very much for the lovely review. I myself didn't think the idea of a fish taco was appealing, until I tried one of our own! Then I too was hooked! We do you you can return and thank you once again. Yorus, Elizabeth

“Fish Taco Heaven!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Ok, we read the reviews and knew we had to go here, and after not finding it our first night and ending up at Mikes Globa Grill (do not go there!) we were delighted when we found this place (it was hiding under our noses the whole time...)

We had the fish tacos and the margaritas, and MAN was it good! we actually came back here two more times on our 4 day Boquete stay.....

If your sick of rice and beans head here ASAP!
