well worth the visit

this is a great spot for lunch. The price is very reasonable and the specials of the day are great. Two very full lunches, two beers and a margarita - - $18.00, can't beat that. .

We ate here our second night and were a but concerned because so few people were in here. It ended up being one of our best meals. The trout with garlic was superb and one of the few Panamanian restaurants who serve vegetables with dinner. The service was also excellent. We recommended this one to other travelers while we were... More

The food was fantastic and the service supreme. This is only a family owned business in a small town, but it exceeded our expectations.

Variety of food available. Very attentive service. Big burgers. Food is fresh and well made. Not a place to rush or be in a hurry.

We ate there for lunch after a golf game. The chicken sandwich I had was good, but they could have put more peppers on it. Taste was great though, and the beer was ICE cold. They were very friendly, and the service was good. Price was very reasonable. We would go back.

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
