Flavorful and interesting choices from beginning to end. Snapper was outstanding ( stew style) as was the orrechiete and sausage. Nicely made drinks as well. Good servers with great attitude. Definitely a more interesting crowd than what you mostly see in the area. Only negative is that they seem to be having trouble adhering to reservation times but manager more than made up for it. Will definitely return.

Love this restaurant. Consistently inventive and very delicious. Excellent service. Not a quiet and romantic spot but a very fun Palm Beach vibe with food and wine that is always fantastic.

Our server, Yvonne, was so personable and knowledgable. Everyone who worked there was really on top of their game, very attentive. The food was really great. Especially liked the Squid ink orecchiette and the pork belly. Love that the menu changes frequently so there is always something new to look forward to.

Buccan is our favorite restaurant in Palm Beach. We actually went 3 times in one week on our last vacation. The food is fresh and light, seasoned perfectly, the service is exceptional. We just love it there-wish there was on in NYC.

Although we had to wait almost 30 minutes past our reservation time, the food and service made up for it! We had an amazing waiter who gave us fantastic recommendations. Our favorite dishes were the brussel sprouts, short rib empanadas and tuna tartar.

Really cool spot with creative dishes. Had Brussels sprout Caesar salad and tuna crudo. Both so fresh, tasty and yum. Then had the pork tacos w salsa verde. and the squid ink pasta dish. Tacos were nice and spicy w plenty of infused lime, cilantro and salsa verde . The pasta dish was delicious too. We loved the casual interior decor -Very open and inviting. Service was top notch. We got great wine recommendations. Not surprised it’s difficult to get a reservation here! Will be back. Maitre D here is on hands. He also covers restaurant next door...Imoto. Another great spot!!

We are from New York, and I’m not sure if you can find a better meal there. A trip to Buccan is a can’t-miss opportunity if you are in the Palm Beach area.

The moment we arrived the service was attentive. We arrived early but they were able to seat us right away. Our waiter read our reservation and was helpful with dietary needs. Everything sounded so good that we went the tapas route. Wood fired oysters, Brussel sprout salad, broccolini all so good. The duck confit was amazing, the best duck I have ever eaten and the parsnips and citrus nice touch. But those spicy pork tacos, that smoky flavor balanced with the avocado crema and salsa verde...I’m only in palm beach for a week but I will have to go back.
