Food was nothing to brag about but it's very much worth the trek to get out there. We got there on a day when the waves were mellow (sort of) but I've heard they get massive and dangerous. The restaurant is across a small dirt road from the beach. We ate and then took our beers on over to just... More

The food portions are huge! And very tasty! Been there twice now and would go back again. I recommend stopping in and ordering the chicken wrap.

Casual surfer place. Great pit stop for pizza & burgers. Staff was nice and it was fun to be so close to the crashing waves. It was a warm tropical rainy day when we went and rain didn't put a damper on our outing.

We cycle from Bocas Town to Bluff Beach. Count 45 minutes. We had to go back by taxi with our bike cause the chain of one of them broke. The staff was super friendly and even tried to fix the bike. The cocktails were very good and the food too. The swimming pool was perfect as the beach is for... More

Friendly staff and could use the pool. Perhaps a little noisy music wise but aimed at the surfer market.

We ate lunch here twice. Service is crap you have to get your own beers and order at the bar if you want anything. Servers hang out and ignore you mostly. Food is beach food decent. Fried fish burgers etc tastes good and cheap beer! The setting is marvelous literally on the sand looking at the ocean. Takes a bit... More

Went to Playa Bluff during our day long ATV excursion from Flying Pirates and on the way back decided to stop for some drinks and lunch. We had trouble getting a waitress to wait on us so I got us our drinks directly from the bar. Finally we were able to get a waitress to bring us menus and we... More

Nice if you're hungry and want to grab something. But it's expensive for what it is. It has a nice vibe and nice scene though, but if you can go downtown do so.

We went to Playa Bluff by bike and were really looking forward to some refreshment and some nice food when we arrived at Playa Bluff. This Restaurant was a total disappointment. I wanted a cold Smoothie, but they hardly had any fruits left and when I eventually got the Smoothie it was the smallest (and most expensive) one I ever... More

This pretty spot offers a varied menu in a beautiful location. The fresh pool must be a god send for those with children or otherwise are bothered by the heat. I enjoyed my meal and would return without heistation.
