Wonderful ambiance with great food and excellent service. A bit pricey but we'll worth it. A must if you plan to be in the area.

This restaurant is located adjacent to The Riverside Inn which is an good place to stay. The wine selection, food presentation, wait staff and overall ambiance exceeded our expectations for a town the size of Boquete.

The Rock is a lovely restaurant on a beautiful river so the ambiance and location is very nice. This was our first trip to the Rock and we found the food to be fairly expensive for what you get compared to other places in Boquete. Assume this is because they cater to the expats. I had Linguini with chicken and... More

We went here several times and recommend it to all. There is a nice covered terrace or cooled inside. Staff is friendly, menu has variety and good taste. Wine is good. Prices are reasonable. Best thing here, besides good dishes is the very very friendly service. We will come again. It is a bit outside of Boquete, has a large... More

Went to the Rock for dinner with friends. The atmosphere is wonderful, but I found the food to be mediocre for my tastes. The value was there and I would definitely visit again.

We would consider this the best fine dining restaurant in Boquete. We went twice and both times a good meal for a reasonable price in comparison to any of the other restaurants in its class in Boquete or elsewhere. For us, it starts well if there is children's menu and it doesn't only contain chicken fingers (even if theirs are... More

Great food, great service in a true fancy restaurant. The price tag reflected that though. I was impressed for small town Panama but I guess it is explained by all the expats living in Boquete these days. It was a bit of a drive from town at night so just make sure to ask good directions or take a cab... More

The Rock restaurant was recommended to us on our first night in Boquete. We couldn't have been happier. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of food, which was outstanding. We had two soups, a filet and a pasta dish with shrimp. All were delicious, and we look forward to visiting again during our trip here.
