My family was out walking around in Bocas and ran in to this place. The door was open so we walked up the stairs to have a little wine. We didn't realize that it was 4:20pm and the place didn't open until 5pm. The owner however was there just cleaning and invited us on in to take a see out on the deck. We didn't mind that things were a bit mixed up since we weren't even supposed to be there. The owner served us and was very happy to do so. The wine was terrific and a great place to people watch on the street from above on the deck. I recommend this fun little place.

There is nowhere like this in bocas town and we loved it! Head up the little staircase on the side of the supermarket and the place is a real surprise! Sit on the balcony for the best people watching, you might have to share a table with others but that's what creates the atmosphere here. Food was fantastic, my husband and I shared spring rolls (more like a piece of battered chicken but yum), ceviche (excellent Thai style), pad Thai and then a brownie. Really good value. People complain about a lack of a wine list but that sort of adds to the atmosphere too- I imagine all wines similar price by the glass and we were topped up through the evening whenever he waitress saw we needed more. About $5 a glass for the Cabernet - a few $ more than other places in town but big glasses and a nicer place!!

Based on tripadvisor reviews we decided to try this place. It was fun. We sat on the balcony overlooking the main street of Bocas and people watched. We had their Mahi mahi ceviche and their fish special of the day. We tried their Passion Fruit flan and wow....really good. Service was excellent and the owner came by to chat and make sure we were doing okay. Not a large place and you may have to share a table on the balcony, but it wasn't uncomfortable.Prices were mid-range.

Loved hanging out above the street and watching the activity go by. Full of ex-pats and lots of friendly conversation.

We had dinner here on our first night in Bocas and were pleasantly surprised with how delicious the food was. Great atmosphere, kind staff. The owner even came out to talk with us about our meal which I was very impressed with. We had a shot with him for dessert. Great place, will definitely be back.
