Whether you've just completed the abbreviated 12 minute walking tour of portobello or the extended 16 minute version you'll undoubtedly follow the signs up the hill to captain jack's. This spot offers a laid back atmosphere with a good view of town and the outlying bay. They have an impressive menu that boasts steaks, fresh seafood, burgers and even a... More

This restaurant is slightly above the centre of the town. You then also go up a set of outside steps to access the restaurant,, so I imagine it has a sea view, but we went for dinner, so there was little view to see. The tables are long large slabs of tree truck and the seats are benches. It had... More

Fresh local food. The open air restaurant provides a great atmosphere. Our family enjoyed the food and like that it is local food.

On a steamy hot day in Portobelo this is the perfect place to idyll away a few hours. With COLD beer and good food and vibe. Though for me the reggaton beat is a bit much for me. Jeff changed the tunes when prompted without a problem so I stayed for the day feeling comfortable.

Cool place.. A bit expensive but. Got some good chat from the barman about the history of portobello and sir Francis drake. The food we had was tasty as were the cocktails! Do yourself a justice and check it out. Not much goin on in portobello, so in a way youl most likely end up there. Arrrr!

We stayed 3 days in the Portobelo area and made frequent use of Captain Jack's. Jeff is an excellent host and gave us loads of good advice on what to do in the area, including hooking up with the amazing Jason for a day's kayaking across the bay and then into the mangroves and a night walk in the rainforest....

Attached to a very average hostel we really enjoyed the food here. Like a lot of Panama it was rather expensive, but the food was delicious and great quality. It takes a long time but there are only a couple of cooks in the little kitchen working very hard. It's in a nice location up the hill with a nice... More
