Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely hosts and chef, good food , good value, chose the Lime prawns and chicken with mushroom and mustard sauce both were really tasty. Felt very welcome and not pressured to have loads of things from the menu. The location was lovely. And the open kitchen was nice to see.

Thank you for the nice review and visiting us at The View. So pleased you enjoyed the food and service. One of my goals was to have an open kitchen (with nothing to hide) and it also connects the chefs with the dining room in a special way Thanks again Simon

I love riding my bike up to Bluff for the day and enjoying the morning on the beach, then when I get hungry or the skies threaten rain I head to The View at Oasis. I usually order their Bocas lime pie, which is absolutely delicious, and sit on the outdoor couch up on the deck and enjoy the view out to the beach. The most recent time I went they added a new outdoor seating area right on the beach as well as some new lunch items on the menu, so my friends and I sat on the beach and had fish tacos for lunch. I think it has to be one of the best deals for lunch up at Bluff ($8 for two large fish tacos with lots of fresh veggies!) and they were delicious. It is a bit quieter than some of the other areas to sit and eat at Bluff, so if you want somewhere peaceful to enjoy the view, good food, and very nice staff I recommend it.

Oasis Bluff Beach is the best place to go out for dinner at the oasis bluff. Wendy and Simon, the owner, build a perfect place for couples and for families. Every table has got wonderful view to the sea and you really feel heartily welcome the minute you enter the restaurant. The people working there are all local people and they are amazing friendly. The food is super, perfect, they change every day a little bit the Menü and everything we ate was great. We stayed at their place 4 nights and ate every evening there, because we liked it so much and we didn’t find a place as beautiful to sit and see the ocean as at this place. While you are eating Wendy passes the table and chats to you. So she creates a warm, friendly, hearted atmosphere. Definitely the best place to go at oasis bluff: Food, view, atmosphere and people.... just perfect!

If it were just for the food, this place would get 5 stars. If it were just for the view, again - 5 stars. Friendly staff, pricing, atmosphere, you get it. Wendy and Simon are incredibly gracious hosts who really do know a thing or two about creating a quality menu and beautiful presentation. They’ve really thought of everything and dining here was such a treat, we couldn’t eat anywhere else on our visit to Bluff Beach. Don’t hesitate. Just go!!! Bill & Maggie March ‘20

We stayed at Simon and Wendy in Panama this January , We were welcome by Simon and Wendy 😍 They've made our stay unique and enjoyable. I recommend this peaceful, soothing and relaxing place. In the evening you will revel in a good meal made by the excellent host Simon and will be welcomed the next morning by the delicious Wendy for breakfast, who will give you all the keys to discover the unusual places of the island. 😍

The Waite staff was very helpful and interested in ensuring we were satisfied with our meals. They made suggestions and gave me three different choices when I requested vegetarian options. Those were not on the printed menu. We had a group of 15 and they worked to have our food arrive about the same time. They do not have the food made ahead but prepare it special for each order. This can take some time but I believe it is worth the wait. When we finished our meal, they contacted our taxis to return for us.

Thank you for choosing the View for your group dinner and for the very kind review and comments. Its always fund to have groups and celebrations in the restaurant. We pride ourselves on providing freshly prepared food for our guests and we think it makes a difference and it seems you agree and noticed the difference. With large groups we strive to ensure all the food comes out at the same time rather than having people waiting on their food, to us its those kind of things that are important. I will be sure to pass on your praise too for our staff Thanks again Simon

We have stayed at the hotel adjacent to The View with the hosts Simon and Wendy for a couple of days during our vacation in Panama. Initially we planned to try out some restaurants in the vicinity, however we ended up just eating at The View because it was hands down the most delicous restaurant of all our Panama restaurant visits! The cocktails and longdrinks are tasty and the food is just amazing. Try the tuna steak, the vegetarian pasta and the Bantoffee pie - you will not regret it. Unfortunately our trip came to a quick end when the Coronavirus hit the whole world, so we needed to rush home to Europe; however Simon and Wendy supported us in communication and finding the easiest way back home. If I ever wind up in Panama again, I would definitely come back to The View and Simon and Wendy.

We eat dinner here twice on our stay at Playa Bluff, great food, especially the lime pie. The service was excellent and the menu changes daily with very reasonable prices. The owners Wendy and Simon are very friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

It is with such a pleasure and appreciation to write this review of Wendy’s, Simon’s, and the whole team’s restaurant, The View in Playa Bluff. We were staying nearby in June 2021 with literally (not an idiom) zero places opened for dinner. Their hospitality was incredible and we were extremely grateful that they opened up on this random Thursday to help feed those staying in Playa Bluff. The tuna was incredible, the drinks were exceptional, and it was one of our favorite meals from our honeymoon in Panama! Please stop by when you’re in town - you won’t regret it.

This was the only restaurant we found open in Bluff beach so we decided to give it a go. The view truly is beautiful. Now about the food. Firstly we were waiting almost an hour to get tuna steak and baked potatoes, not to mention that some guests that came later, got food before us. When we finally got the food i was surprised. I have never seen such small portion of tuna steak. I was told later that their normal portion is 80 grams!? In my countr normal portion is at least 150 grams, normally about 200 grams. I really wasnt expecting such small portion especialy after a long wait. My girflriends tuna steak was also soon to be cold instead of fresh hot from grill. I can say though that the baked potatoes were great and also the thai souce. Also the waiter was nice and gave a beer on the house for compensation which made thr lunch a little better. But all in all if it were not for 2 side baked potatoes i would be really hungry.

Thank you for your visit on Sunday, and I am sorry for the long wait you experienced (upon checking our systems, your wait was 40 minutes, which is certainly longer than we normally expect); however, our waiters did inform our guests that as we were so unexpectedly busy, the wait times would be longer than normal and especially seen as we had two members of kitchen staff out with sick children. This is not an excuse, but that is why our staff informed our diners that it would take a little longer; I had asked the waiters to provide some nuts for guests to enjoy with their drinks while people waited. The Waiter (Elias) did not say 80 grams; he actually said our normal portion is around 8oz (225grams), so maybe due to the face mask and background noise, what he said wasn't heard correctly (our portions are certainly NOT 80grams /2.8OZ as that would be very very small indeed, in fact- tiny). Thank you for bringing it to our waiter's attention, and I am pleased Elias did the right thing and gave complimentary beer to compensate for that smaller piece of Tuna. Sorry, Elias didn't inform me at the time; I was in the kitchen but would have come out to speak with you and make things right; however, I am pleased he took the initiative to put things right on his own. I am pleased you enjoyed the food overall, just very sorry about the wait and the one small Tuna. Thank you again for your visit and for taking the time to provide feedback - it helps us improve, which we always strive to do

Had dinner and lunch here several times while staying at the B&B. Every single dish we had was delicious; I personally highly recommend the ribeye steak with blue cheese sauce. Prices are really reasonable as well, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Last, but not least, the staff is very friendly, service oriented and always up for a nice little chat.

I loved eating at this restaurant. First of all the service the owners the way is everyone is just so attentive and thoughtful and patient and kind. I managed to talk to the owners and the chef and just learned about their experiences was just extra onto the experience. The food was very creative each day the menu was different it was hard to choose. I often choose the fish and it was just lovely. I don’t normally get dessert but I had to even try the desert just because the food was so good.

I have been coming to the Bocas del Toro region for over 20 years now and can confidently say that I feel the food, service and atmosphere of this restaurant is beyond fantastic. Way, way above the rest that I have visited. You may not need one for lunch but you will need to make a reservation for dinner and the location is at the Oasis B&B which is roughly 20 minutes out of Bocas town on the beach. Well worth the trip. You might as well look at staying there if you are looking for a place with beautiful beach access and surf. The menu seems to change but I had the chicken tarragon and the chicken fricasse...both amazing with luscious sauces. The hummus platter and bruschetta were also fantastic. I had chicken tacos for lunch and satay another day...if I could make something like that at home I certainly would...just delicious. Plenty of seafood options if you like that. You can tell the food is made by inspired people and the staff was well chosen. Very friendly folks here and a wonderful view. You will be very happy with your choice!

Simon and Wendy own the View Restaurant and you can see why it is so named. They have a great view of the ocean, $5 cocktails and the best food on the island. They have a great wait staff and even better kitchen staff. The menu varies a little bit every day and they do a bar-b-que on Sundays which is excellent. If you enjoy a good steak, don’t miss his filet. Well worth the visit! loves his veggies.

The owners (Simon and Wendy) welcome you at their place like hosts should welcome everyone. The staff is friendly and hardworking. There is a different menu everyday and after a day at the beach or island, its the best place to eat and have a drink. Bocas finest!
