Bibi's on the beach

Restaurant used to be part of the Bucaneer Resort, Carenero Island

Reviewed By Caroline L


We ate lunch there because of the good reviews here and we were so disappointed. The food wasn’t good at all and the service was really slow. We had the burger, maybe the fish is better..!? We would not recommend this at all. Better to go next door to Bocas beach club, good food and really friendly and attentive staff.

Reviewed By SophisticatedBohemia - Bocas Town, Panama

Excellent food, drinks & a spectacular view

I ate at the Jamundi and stayed for a big local gathering in Carenero, Bocas del Toro. The food is excellent. I had ceviche and soup and my husband had BBQ chicken and patacon (a local special - double friend plantain). Beers were a buck and cocktails were three dollars. There's a great breeze. Later in the evening, there was live music and great Caribbean dancing. Highly recommended.
