I started out with the fish soup, which was very good. I moved on to the ají de gallina (shredded chicken in a chili-cream sauce), which was simply bland. The service at the restaurant is on the slower side. The dining room is well lit-up and lacks a bit of ambiance. Prices not exactly cheap.

We went to this place for lunch. Two people in our party did not get food till every one almost finished. Prices were on the high side. I ordered Hiroshima fish dish, nothing memorable about it. My 10% tip tha they charge, was wasted. They simply did not seem to care.

So I've been here 4 times now I think. I've ordered their fish a few different ways, & I've settled on the one dish I like plus their fried civeche which I really like. One of the fish dishes came with a large shrimp on it & I found it to be tasteless & overcooked. There's only one waitress who's... More

Machu Picchu us a Boquete favorite for upscale dining. The Peruvian menu is outstanding! If you like an adult beverage you have to try their Pisco Sour! There are also restaurants in David and Panama City.

My husband and I went here for dinner on one of the nights we were in Boquete. It was ok food for me, not the best but far from the worst we had while in Panama. However, I will say that my husband liked it a lot. The seafood in my dish did seem very fresh, which was good but... More

The food is not very good, and it is way over-priced. Don't waste your time at this place. My husband liked his dish okay, but my shrimp were downright gross.

The service is pretty good here, I love their menu, wonderful seafood options (including octopus), and of course Panama renowned Pisco Sours. You ought not to leave Boquete without sampling your very own Pisco Sour

This was recommended by other guests at our hotel, but we found the food to be average. The restaurant seemed to get overwhelmed and service suffered, even though it wasn't that busy. The menu could be summed up as shrimp and shellfish, 72 different ways! Interesting, but again, better places in Boquete. I wouldn't put this on my list of... More

Food was very good and filling. We went to dinner early so there were plenty of open tables. Location is in middle of town so it is easy to find
