Excellent Panamanian home cooking

My husband and I had our first meal at Las Orquideas and were astonished at how good it was, we had the pork asado and were blown away by the meal. I also had the best liquado I've had in a long time! We will go often.

We stopped in for lunch one day. There's no menu; the server tells you what they have that day. There are plenty of choices so worries. One of us had beef and one of us had chicken. Both were delicious -- we ate every bite of the very considerable portions.

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.
