A POPULAR BOCAS RESTAURANT AND NIGHTCLUB LOUNGE ON THE DOWN TOWN STRIP
Sitting on 200 m2 of prime real estate, this bountiful establishment is located on the main street of a touristic Caribbean Island Town. Isla Colon is the main island of the Bocas del Toro Archipelago, with the busiest airport in the province, its historic town core is a popular place for tourists to congregate as the day turns to night.
The Fincas & Estancias Argentine/Italian restaurant lures in pedestrians with their warm atmospheric glow and ‘Pasta a la Rota de Parmesano’! But it’s not only happenstance that hungry international travelers find their way to the inviting patio dining tables, the restaurant has a great reuptation and a 4 star rating on trip advisor. The operation has also secured a client base of Panama City’s foodies, who fly over for the fresh seafood, 100% Angus beef prepared in the traditional Argentine way, and the intricate wine cellar with an excellent collection of wines from around the world… only to return home from Bocas the following day.
Currently holding the only streetside terrace concession, the Fincas & Estancias restaurant will have front row seats to the evolution of the Main Street Bocas Town, as bike lanes and royal palms have been scheduled to enhance the user experience of the down town core.

With 5 double beer taps of local and import specialty beer, no one goes thirsty. The four underbar refridgerators are fully stoked and equipped with the ingredients for a large list of cocktails to make the night feel special, and the 800 bottle wine cellar has five wine fridges with different temperatures for the incredible variety of wines.
