A smoothie at la Buguita is the perfect hangover cure, breakfast drink, evening cocktail with added rum, and everything else. The food is delicious and the cook very talented and friendly. Whether it is for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you will find good food, friendly (sexy) waiters and a perfect seaside terrasse. But beware, the parrot might try and eat your food ;)

Really liked this place. Right on the water, great staff and priced well. The fish tacos and the burgers made our daily lunch schedule.

During our week in Bocas, this was our go-to spot for breakfast. It's located right on the water, which makes for a great place to start the day. They have a wide variety of smoothies, black coffee, and a range of food from breakfast burritos to french toast to granola. They also have a parrot that "lives" there who likes to imitate your whistles, and may even come sit on your shoulder. I loved it here.

I went here, as it was the first place I saw that looked interesting! I was unfortunately late for breakfast but will go back and try that soon! I had the humous and falafel plate with a coffee and a smoothie! Everything was delcious and filling and it all came to $13 including tax. Not a bad price considering I was full and didn't have to eat anything else for the rest of the day!

We waited for 45 mins for our food at a quiet time of day. When I asked how much longer the food would be, I was told (with the waitresses back to me) "it's ready"... It wasn't. After asking to cancel the order 15 minutes later (an hour after ordering) out came two terrible burgers: one over cooked, the other undercooked.

For the price I expected better, it's expensive and the service is awful. They even add a 10% charge to your bill (I assume for service) ummm, no I didn't want to leave you a tip!

The whole bocas experience is a rip off, but at least you don't normally have to wait an hour for your crappy food to come out.
