Nurture your Soul

Eating is an act of celebration at Bird Island, and a highlight of many guests' stay. We cook with love, often with ingredients sourced from our garden, and believe every meal should be an opportunity to nourish both body and soul. All our meals are locally sourced and plant forward. But we always encourage the addition of a delicious protein to any meal: fresh mahi-mahi, tuna, shrimp, chicken, tofu or chorizo. And we are happy to accommodate dietary needs or restrictions, just let us know your preferences when you place your order.


Dinner is the mainstay of the Bird Island culinary experience and an international celebration. Every night of the week our menu is inspired by a different culture -- Japanese, Indian, Mexican, Caribbean -- and draws on local customs and fresh ingredients. Each dinner menu includes a variety of starters (ceviches, soups, dips, and salads), several entrees (with the optional addition of seafood, chicken, chorizo, or tofu), and an assortment of home-made desserts (be sure to try our Snickerbar cake!).


Dinner is served from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Delicious Dinner at Bird Island Panama

"The food and drinks are simply amazing. To make things even better everything is locally sourced and feels so healthy. Even the alcoholic beverages make you feel healthy. The Bartender Nico puts just as much devotion into his drinks as the Chef does the food."

Our poolside bar is a central gathering area for guests during the day, and where our bartender, Nico, dazzles guests with fresh fruit smoothies and designer cocktails. Happy hour, from 5 pm to 6 pm is often the busiest time of day at the bar, but we offer a bar menu with snacks all day long, and our roof deck, with unobstructed views of the Drago coast, is one of the nicest spots to sip a drink and enjoy the sunset.


The bar is open from 10 am to 9 pm.
