Welcome to Guacaya Bistreaux

Traditional meets modern in this new-age Caribbean restaurant, tucked away in the heart of the North Loop. It is named after the mountain in the small town of Penonome in Panama. Guacaya pulls inspiration from mainland Panama, Jamaica Puerto Rico, and all the islands in between. The passion project of Panamanian native Chef Pedro Wolcott, Guacaya’s menu explores the cooking techniques, ingredients, and many expressions of vibrant food across the entire region. This showcases Chef/owner Pedro Wolcott's upbringing between Panama & Southern Louisiana (New Orleans).

The space boasts a stunning bar, a robust cocktail program, and a fun wine list focusing on small producers, built to pair with Caribbean flavors & Southern Louisiana cuisine.

Welcome, friends!
