Visited for lunch and was very much looking forward to sampling the Peruvian ceviche. My husband and I decided to order just appetizers and no entrees and a pisco sour. So I am only rating as such. We ordered 2 corvina ceviches: Decent portions for $6.95. You could probably eat this as an entree for one if you really wanted.... More

This is a companion to its sister restaurant in Panama City. There are three Peruvian restaurants in Boquete and this is reportedly the best of the bunch. Reasonable prices and a very extensive menu. As usual when I am eating in Panama, I look for the fresh fish and I was not disappointed. Had the ubiquitous sea bass and it... More

The food was only so-so and the prices were high. We really didn't care for this place. Our dinner was somewhat flavorless and greasy. We both had seafood dishes and decided there were much better and cheaper places to eat in Boquete.

We ate dinner here the first night we landed in Boquete. We ordered a Pisco Sour drink each. It was excellent and we relished every drop of it. For appetizers we ordered Fish Fritters (which we had tried in Panama City and loved) but were very disappointed as they were very tiny and very fried We had the Black Rice... More

I needed some time to decide what kind of drink I wanted. We decided to order o,5 ltr. sangria. They gave us a liter instead (We realised this later, I don't think this is a nice way to 'sell more') . They asked two times if we didn't want to order starters. The food was very nice, but I thought... More

We had a one evening meal here. We had excellent, well presented, fish which was washed down with a gluggable bottle of white wine. A satisfying meal.

That is how we felt dining here on a recent Monday evening. We previously ate at the owner's other brother's restaurant in town and enjoyed it but was told this was better. It wasn't. We felt like we were intruding upon them having to wait on us and never seen a smile during our dinner or drink order there. The... More

While not quite as good as it's sister restaurant in Panama City, this is still a very good choice for dining while in Boquete. The Peruvian dishes along with their fantastic sauces are quite the treat.

We went here thinking they would have good fish but it was really bad. The calamari was like rubber, the sea bass was fishy, the vegetables were water logged and overcooked and it was the most expensive meal we have had so far. So many other choices -- Big Daddy and Mike's Grill were terrific.
