We had some pizzas. They are very oily. In addition, the cheese was tasteless. The service wasn't very good. The waitress didn't even bring us the menus, we had to go and take them ourselves.

Some of the worst pizza that I have ever had. Aside from a relatively cool porch on which to sit and eat and drink, there is not much to recommend here. The waitress was surly and inattentive despite having only two customers. The pizza had pepperoni and some other weird sausage. The cheese was very odd. The beer was not... More

We had a burger and shawarma, not much to it, good price I guess but left feeling unsatisfied. At least the beer was cheap. Don't expect the staff to serve you, they seem preoccupied talking to each other.

I had their pizza many times and mostly it is always the way l like it. Usually hawaiiana and added mushrooms and bacon. A good pizza for the money. Made fresh, takes about 20 minutes.

The pizzas are made fresh and taste good. So do the juices. The whole place has the benefit of giving you a decent meal with drink for a reasonable price (roughly USD 11.-) which separates it from other locations on the waterfront. And it has Wifi. The waiters are not very friendly, though. The do their job but that's it.... More

Pizza is very heavy on the cheese with very little sauce so was quite stodgy. Good fooze ball table (free I think) and pool table is only $2 hour. Good cocktail menu. Was quiet when we went and they sort of closed up round us at 9.30....

Came here for pizza and drinks. The pizza was ok but there was too much cheese and not enough sauce for most of us so was a bit stodgy. The drinks were really nice and not bad value really. The pool table was 2 dollars for an hour and fusball was free. We did feel a bit like they were... More

We had the vegetarian pizza, & it was tasty. Great prices on beer & cocktails. The staff speaks very little English. Definitely a nice place to eat pizza.

We were there for a quick lunch after the Red Frog zip line tour. We ordered the Mama Mia (your typical meaty pizza) and were impressed with the quality and taste. The crust is hand-tossed and had a great garlic flavor. It was crispy (wood-fired?) and not too thick. The sauce was not too sweet and the toppings were tasty.... More

We had breakfast here. Coffee was limited to weak brown stuff, but coffee in general is not good in Bocas. The breakfast bagels and omelets are decent, but they use processed cheese which is basically like orange chemical vinyl. Bacon and meat portions are skimpy. Really, you get better food for the same price in most places in North America.... More
