Bocas Del Toro Restaurants


For a relatively remote bunch of islands, Bocas del Toro has an astonishing variety of local and international cuisine to please diners of all tastes and budgets.Restaurants are mainly found in Bocas town, on Isla Carenero and in Old Bank, Isla Bastimentos. When it comes to these Bocas del Toro restaurants, traditional Caribbean dishes with fresh local ingredients are undoubtedly the cheapest option, and the platefuls of coconut rice, seasonal vegetables, lentils and freshly caught fish are both delicious and filling. Seafood is abundant and diverse – snapper, sea bass and shrimp are common, along with local conch served in Caribbean, coconut and curry sauces. Vegetarians shouldn’t have a problem finding a hearty, healthy  meal either. Many restaurants are located over the water, on the beach, or even tucked away in the jungle – offering glorious views, cool breezes and exotic sounds as you wait for your meal.  International options include Indian, Thai, Italian, Greek, Mexican, Chinese, Spanish and American. There are also bakeries and sandwich shops where you can get fresh food to go. See what tourists are saying about Restaurants in Bocas del Toro.

Om Cafe

Chai tea at Om Restaurant | Indian food Bocas del Toro

One of our favorites!  Serving breakfast from 8-12 and dinner from 6-10 pm.  Lovely Indian fare with traditional American breakfast offered in addition to Indian breakfast.

Om can be found behind the municipal building and across the street from the plaza and park in Bocas town.






El Ultimo Refugio

Another gem in Bocas town where the menu changes daily and is hand crafted by it’s lovely owner Katherine!  At the southern end of town past the large freight boat dock.  Only open for dinner starting at 6pm- though you can arrive a little earlier and enjoy a tasty drink while you are waiting!
