Late lunch

Price: good value for money' Food: the Mole was very, very good. However, my wife got sick from eating the vegetarian burritos. They were cooked in a lot of oil and really fatty. Not a good choice. Service: attentive and friendly, albeit a bit slow. Ambience: authentic, but lots of mosquitos which... read more

I had 3 mixed tacos that were well made, plus great chips and guacamole. The service was excellent; the waiter was very attentive, unusual/refreshing for Panamanian waitstaff.

Drove by it many times, but just couldn't believe we could find a Mexican taste in such small town. Well.... to our surprise, it was excellent! Asked for tostitos and guacamole and received fresh, warm tortillas with not only fresh guacamole, but mole, salsa verde and salsa roja. Our meals were promptly, fresh, and good. Not to say the least... More

Had beef burritos which were not good at all. Should not have eaten them but I did and got really sick the night after. My girlfriend had vegetarian burritos which were okish but way overpriced for what you got. Also didnt get the sour cream and avocado that we ordered. The woman serving us was friendly but that doesn't make... More

I went there because the other Mexican restaurant was closed. It had been quite some time since my last visit there and nothing has changed. Portions are small (salad was so small I would describe it as a 'token' salad), and food was disappointing. Also not what I would describe as typical Mexican.

Extreamly overpriced for Panamanian standards. $8.50 for 3 small dried out tacos, a little bit of beans, and a little bit of Mexican salad (aka diced tomatoes.) There are way better reseraunts for the same prices, and even way better reteraunts for half the price. Listen, I hardly ever. write reviews on trip advisor, but this was important to express!...

I ate here on my first day in Boquete. I wanted nachos so I ordered nachos. It came in a weird manner, where the beans were at the bottom with cheese (never saw it nor tasted it). It wasn't the best. Slow service (as usual in Boquete, only one server). The place was nice, but nothing that blew me away.... More
