Went out to dinner, there were 6 of us all eating steak and having drinks, food was great, the bill was very cheap, feed 6 for the price of 2 here in the USA. Carlos came in and he was very nice and friendly.

Carlos cures his own meat if I am not mistaken, and the flavor and texture are just outstanding. I have traveled the world and have never had a better steak. The ambience matches the food to a T.

We visited this steak house during one of Isla Colon's infamous power outages, so a candlelight dinner was mandatory. The steak was grilled in the outdoor kitchen and was very good. However, the side dishes left much to be desired. The corn on-the-cob was completely overlooked to the point that it was mushy and their idea of "baked potato" are 2 egg sized potatoes wrapped in foil. I laughed when I saw them! They have a wine selection, though we didn't try any since we had already started on beer earlier in the day. Overall all it was decent and one of the few spots for beef eaters on the island (real beef is scarce). The prices are very reasonable ($16 for a 16oz New York Strip, $19 for a 12oz Filet Mignon). I would eat there again.

What a great little place for patio dining to watch tourists and locals mingle! Let not forget about the food which was fabulous! Great bread and ceviche...before the steak! The filet and ribeye were good and the wine was awesome! Service was nice!
The owner came over to see how the steak was and to top off my wine. Nice touch!
Bocas town needs a place just like this ;) this little steak house is a perfect end to a beautiful Caribbean night

Cannot believe this place ranks so low overall on TripAdvisor! This was the best steak we have had in YEARS, and Carlos was an absolute gentleman. Trying to get a half-decent steak anywhere in Central America is truly a challenge. Many places claim to be selling Argentine or USDA beef, but ours, locally produced but prepared by Carlos himself, was perfection! Thank you, sir, for a wonderful evening!

Incidentally, this is not a seeded review by an internet hotshop as too many TA reviews are, but the real thing. We live in Canada and Costa Rica, and know whereof we speak!
