Old school cool

The oldest restaurant in Boquete. You might expect to see James Cagney, Humpfrey Bogart or Ernest Hemmingway. Great big crackling fireplace in the bar, soft jazz in the background, warm cozy quiet environment. Food is exceptional and is designed to be an entire evening event (no hurry here or you... read more

We were expecting an exceptional meal, but honestly the food was just OK. The mushroom ravioli was quite good and very well seasoned. The risotto, however, had no seasoning at all. My husband had a fork in one hand and a salt shaker in the other. Some more parmesean would have gone a long way. It also had a funny,... More

I love the Panamonte. It has terrific atmosphere and lots of history. If you want a formal dining experience you can sit in the formal dining room. I highly recommend that you go in the back lounge and get a seat by one of the fireplaces, but not too close. The food is excellent. I recommend the salmon on a... More

If you want to try the best gourmet food that boquete has to offer don't forget to stop at the Panamonte Hotel. Amazing food, great service and good wine.

Anniversary dinner at the Panamonte. My husband and I ordered the grilled salmon on the cedar plank and it was done exactly as we ordered it. It was juicy, tasty, melt in your mouth scrumptious. The mixed vegetables were al dente and so tasty. My mother in law who was with us ordered the trout and it to was done... More

Fine dinning with great service. The decor was first rate. We enjoyed our meal. I had a great steak. I requested it medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. The staff was very attentive

Great bar, you must try the house drink. Its made from a Panamanian fruit, delicious! The staff is very nice and the food is very good. Very nice place for a quiet meal with great ambiance.

Very old school. Not cheap. But very nice and very good food. Service could be slightly warmer but that probably comes with the traditional etiquette. Very good steak. Recommended for a special occasion or just when you run out of other good restaurants in Boquete.

Very expensive. It is a nice restaurant. You would expect to pay more that average as you get an above average meal-taste and flavor in a fine dinning experience. Tthe food was best we had in Panama.

It's not enough that the food here was wonderful, it's the whole ambiance that will make this our go to spot for special occasions, guest in town and just in the mood for a wonderful dining experience. We ate in the bar area which looks out over the most delightful gardens and just feels right for a Panamanian meal. Bravo... More
