Local prices and very tasty

I ate there for lunch one day. the menu was simple, well explained and good meat& potatoes (well rice n' beans) food. Great value for a low-frills lunch. They do breakfast too.

If you want to taste real panamanian traditional food you must visit this restaurant. Prices are also very cheap compare to the area the restaurant is located. Waitress are very educated and prepared to attend customers.

A little terrazo, a few wooden tables, one little old lady, just a choice of 3 or 4 typical Panamanian meals but great value for money and good home-cooked meals! Bravo!

This is a little place (whole in the wall), that is located in a house. The food is homemade, yummy, plenty and very reasonable.

There are a lot of expat-run places in Boquete, which can be great, but you should make sure to include local places like this in your visit. Small menu, no-frills setting, but the food and juices are absolutely delicious (FYI no beer though). And hard to beat the price.

It is not a luxury restaurant, but what do I get for the money is worth it. I have eaten there twice. "Good" restaurants in Boquete has many, but this is different. I highly recommend it.

If you like to go where the locals go for good food, this is the spot. As we were heading to another nearby restaurant, one of the locals recommended this place. We were told to look at the number of people in each. The one we were headed to was nearly empty, this place was packed. We snagged a table... More

OMG, I will remember this place for a loooong time. Don't expect anything fancy, it's a simple place with simple home-style food. The lady taking orders was very nice, explained slowly and patiently all options in Spanish (although she can try to do it in English when you ask). Here is why this place is so special...
