For local food and service with a smile this is the place. Plate lunch with choice of chicken, pork or beef and comes with rice, beans and salad is $3.75 and big bowl of delicious soup is $1.75 add .75 for rice. Preparation of entrees varies daily but always tasty.

When i stayed on Isla Colon, this was one of my favorite places to come and eat, mostly because they give you a decent amount of found for about $3.50. The flavor of the food is pretty good as well. It is a little small so try to go when at a slow time if you want a seat, or just take the food to go.

If you want to try local Panamanian food, this is a great place to do it. Also the prices are probably the lowest on the island, and you get plenty of food, so it's a great deal! The food was average but the price and the authenticity are great. If you're traveling on a budget I'd recommend it since Bocas can be a bit pricey.
