Every time we come to Bocas, we make sure to have dinner at Guari Guari. Although the 5 course menu is fixed, they will make adjustments to ingredients to satisfy most diners. The host is very gracious, and accommodating, and the chef has always created amazing meals.

This place was recommended by another restaurant in Boco. They served a great 5 course meal (a set menu). The owner was very nice and made sure we had a good time. He kept the wine glasses full. Reservations are a must. It is somewhat hard to find just look for the only gas station in town.

Guari Guari is my go to for a special occasion. For $23 you get a personalized five course meal. The serving sizes are perfect so that you can try it all without feeling like you are going to explode at the end or leave you wanting more food. It is best to go in person to make a reservation.

We recently ate at Guari Guari while in Bocal, Panama. It was easily the best meal we had while in Panama. My husband travels for work to Europe and South America, and even he couldn't remember when he had a better meal. If you are looking for a nice meal, this is definitely the place to go.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, really peaceful, and the staff is really nice, professional and efficient. We had here a great dinner with high quality food: Guari Guari is maybe the best restaurant of the area in my opinion.

We stayed on Colon Island for 2 months and this by far was our favorite restaurant. Price fix, 5 courses, no choices, but wow. Everything is superb. Add to that the charming waitstaff, and this will be an experience you won't soon forget.

We loved this hidden location with the sounds of waves! The food was spectacular - truly the best in Bocas! The host was so attentive and kind. And the price was very fair for what you are served. Don't miss this restaurant while in Bocas. Make the reservation!

Requires a taxi to get here - cheap at the price. Return cab is easily obtained. This is a different style of eating - a five course tasting menu. All great food served by a wonderful waiter and prepared by a magician in the kitchen. It's small so reservations are usually required.
