I was walking by and decided to drop in. Spanish not required and I was made to feel very welcome by the staff. I had a chicken dish that was very good but I am going back for the pizza. It looked even better

La Casbah

Reviewed By Bridget M

Yummy mediterranean cuisine! It's been 2.5 years since our trip so I can't remember specifics but I would definitely go back. Our waiter was wonderful and the food was delicious. There isn't a whole lot of ambience since the patio is right next to the street but it was great for people watching!

El Ultimo Refugio

Rustic and quaint, over the water, Caribbean-American fusion, focus on fresh seafood. Meat and vegetarian options always avaible

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member

This a nice casual restaurant with friendly staff and it has a decent menu selection. I really enjoyed my curry, lots of flavour. Service was a little slow but a nice place to check out away from the main street.

Stopped in here to check out the coffee selection and the deli. Returned for sandwiches the following day. Great bread, good choice of fillings. There is a great selection of fresh toppings as well. The sandwiches hit the spot and we returned again to pick up more for our shuttle trip. Didn’t buy any groceries, but checked it out. Nice selection. Owner very congenial and staff nice.

Went here twice, once on a walk and once with the family on a break from riding quads. We had some homemade limonade which was tasty and sodas. Woman working was super chill and the place had a come and relax kind of vibe. Surfers right there to watch. How cool is that. They serve food but close early.

We have a beautiful garden bordered with hundreds of recycled water bottles, as well as a comfy couch and an herb garden made of old wooden pallets. We have learned to recycle and reuse in order to maximize space and comfort for our valued customers. We have quickly become a Bocas landmark!Bocas Blended offers unique food and drink selections at great prices using local and fresh ingredients. We are your only healthy 'fast food' option here on the island. Our menu features signature recipe smoothies, such as the green ginger pineapple and the vitamin c craze, fresh squeezed natural juices, salads, wraps, spicy passion fruit ceviche, and much more!

Our favorite breakfasts with coffee were eaten on the covered deck behind the Blended Bus, overlooking Sandfly Bay. I just wish I could do breakfast here every morning! I had the breakfast on two occasions. My friends had various options, including the breakfast Sandwich. Once or twice it was just coffee as I'd already eaten - but couldnt resist the view over coffee! Be sure to stop at least once! The smoothies come highly recommended, I just didn't have the chance to try one.

Might not be on the main drag, but so very worth the extra footage! Surprised by the delightful decor, live music and amazing presentation. A lovely starter, mini miso and thin plantain chips with a veggie caviar of sorts it is The house version of chips and salsa while you wait for your order. I ordered the crazy maki roll and it was more then enough for a full meal! Cool spot!

Even though the location is a bit off, you really get some good food here. The really nice staff provided us with their own version of hummus with pidgeon peas and the tropical burrito which can be served in 3 "flavors" - veggie, chicken, fish.
Burrito and Hummus were great. Visit recommended.

We stopped in for breakfast after spending several mornings at El Pirate. We all had something different, and everything was great including the yogurt parfait, breakfast burrito, and the tomato, zucchini and basil omelet. Service was friendly and quick. Can't wait to go back.
