We recently met a friend visiting Boquete for a late lunch at the Bistro located in downtown Boquete. It was our first meeting and had been a while since we had visited the Bistro. Our beers were ice cold, we enjoyed some fried plantains; then after much conversation we ordered lunch, Arne had hot wings, they were very good, spicey... More

I have gone twice to this restaurant and it never disappoints. Each time I have gone, I've sat down to wonderful meals. Whether I had a burger, soup or pork chops, the ingredients have been fresh, and the dishes have been executed with expert technique. The food is far better than the pub/saloon ambiance. The staff is friendly and courteous.... More

The service was friendly and they had a decent and inexpensive list of specials. I chose the sea bass (corvina) and it was excellent, coming... More

Ok, so in theory, I love their menu. It has a decent selection of items and decently priced sandwiches. Today, my wife and I went back to Bistro and I couldn't be more p*ssed off about the experience. We both ordered the pastrami sandwich - which was supposed to have carmelized onions, jalapeno cheese, and pastrami. No onions, 1 slice... More

We enjoyed a light dinner here one evening. They make good soup. I would go back when I am a bit more hungry. Every thing I saw on other peoples tables looked good.

I have eaten here a ½ dozen times by now…working my way through the menu:-) The menu offers a large variety of dishes from sandwiches to full meals. All the items that I have tried have been fresh and tasty. Seat yourself upstairs or down, inside or out. The place is popular with locals and visitors. The staff is pleasant... More
