We followed the local suggestion and were not disappointed. Missed the Thursday special, but still enjoyed the ribs. As a matter of fact, we were the only customers, early pm on a Tuesday, still the service was exceptional, and we could select everything to our liking from the menu. Any World Traveler should find their choices satisfying.

We stopped at The Rock for a late lunch or early dinner. We are not meal consumers. We ordered a salad with a bowl of potato soup. Both were served in great presentations, and tasted very good. The restaurant has a wonderful garden atmosphere. Our only disappointment was the pricing, which was a bit expensive.

I was so excited to see prime rib on the menu since the beef in Panama is not very good - unfortunately, it wasn't available while we were there - I think it should have been removed if not available. The salmon I selected was very good.

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
