The food was delicious and came out pretty fast. We had a great time sunbathing on the deck and going for a swim on the clear ocean.

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. The people treat you like family, the view is something you have to see to experience. You can snorkel right underneath your seat. The food and drinks are prepared perfectly. I highly recommend this spot because of all those...More

What an amazing bar that you must take a water taxi to get to! You can drink and snorkel and lay in the water hammocks! Love the sweet Rotti on the island too!

Food was delicious and drinks were awesome! Places to lay out in the sun and also hammock in the water to lay in. Snorkeling mask and breathing tube available for free. I send a stingray while I was out.

The owner is the craziest lady you'll ever meet in the best way possible. She knows how to party, and instills that energy into her bar.

We were newlyweds honeymooning in Bocas and stopped at The Blue Coconut for lunch during a fishing excursion. The food was great but even better was the hospitality of the staff and owner. If you want a place where locals go and a breathtaking view...More

We went there on the suggestion of someone whom we asked for a nice and safe place for the kids to snorkel. It was perfect! Short trip from Isla Colon with the water taxi, not many people (low season?), the restaurant gave us some masks....More

The Bar is 200feet out over the water with clear blue waters, colourful live coral, and spectacular snorkelling. There are two swim/tan platforms for customers to utilize with stairs going down into the water to make it that much easier. There are 2 chefs on staff that are more then willing to come out and explain the dishes or tailor them to your needs. The atmosphere is friendly, the food cheap, delicious and fresh and the drinks ice cold. Another thing to note is The Blue Coconut is completely off grid, so 100% solar powered and the outdoor shower uses rainwater. This means not only will you enjoy the food and drinks, but you're helping the environment at the same time! Salud and see you soon! Remember this is a solar run Resturaunt so it does take time to prepare and cook the food, we try for the 10-20 min order to table but if the restaurant is full it may take a little more time, we appreciate your patience.
