Description: The Lemongrass - Asian Fusion restaurant on the Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro waterfront. We use mostly local seafood, allowing our menu to change daily according to availability.

My curry was very bland and tasted like potato soup with NO traditional thai flavours at all. The pad thai was unbalanced with the wrong type of noodles and seemed to lack egg and peanuts.

2 stars far good service and nice but expensive drinks.

So many options DO NOT waste your time and money here especially if you appreciate thai flavour

The restaurant is nice on the 1st floor with a great view over the lagoon. We had a nice dinner and the atmosphere was good: music was played live and the staff was friendly.

The prices are around 10-15 dollars. We would come back again!

I went to Lemongrass twice over the week I was in Bocas. The food was always very tasty, I had a spicy chicken curry dish, we tried the tuna, and also chili lime calamari. Prices are average for the area. I did like the atmosphere, cool and breezy. Evening live music was tranquil. My only complaint was that unknown to me, there was a calamari appetizer ($7) and a dinner ($14), and when I said "calamari" the server didnt ask which I wanted, so of course they ended up bringing the $14 one and I found out about it when I got the bill. Honest mistake perhaps. Or maybe it happens often. I paid for it anyway because it was great.

I would go back to Lemongrass anytime and recommended them to other travelers heading to Bocas.
