Nice Atmosphere. Decent Food.

I ate here for dinner. As described in many guidebooks, this place gives the feel of a restaurant back home. The decor is nice and the place seems clean. The service was average, but more attentive than other places in the area. I had a salad and the trout. The food was ok, but nothing special.

The last time I reviewed Bistro Boquete followed a disappointing experience in December 2011. Things have changed considerably for the better since then. The menu is better, the service is much more professional, the atmosphere is improved, the restaurant is cleaner, the prices are still reasonable, and the owner was cooking. Our Valentine's Day lunch included fried wontons with vegetables,... More

We ate here as many of the restaurants in Boquete close very early. Burger was good but chips were only so so. I had the spaghetti and it was fine. Expect to pay about 25$ with a couple of beers for a meal between 2.

Despite the power going out in all of Boquete, the staff at Bistro made sure to keep us comfortable in Emergency lighting! And they cooks didn't skip a beat - cooking in the dark and delivering the four of us with delicious meals from start to finish! Happy New Year!

Nice burger joint with music. Marinade of the burger was delicious. Not particularly cheap but very good. We enjoyed the food. The service was slow but we expected as much as it is common in Panama

We remembered this place from 5 years ago. Has wall mural of native coffee bean pictures and lots of natural wood and bannister to the upstairs. The had it very nicely decorated for the Christmas holiday and the food was delicious.
