The Baru Restaurante in Boquete Panama was one of my favourite places to eat while in Boquete. Great service. Servers can speak English for those that are not fluent in Spanish. Menu has a good selection. Price is good. Great location. Right across from Central Park.

There is no way I'm ever going back to Restaurante Baru... I'm a full time resident of Boquete and I have to admit it's been four months since I've been to Baru. This time was the last time. Back in October we were having a birthday celebration and lunch was okay but I was really put off with the automatic... More

The food is good, and the location is great for people watching. I love the quesadillas probably the best.

Not bad but merely average. Better places to eat with better food all over town (and cheaper). If you need to use the WIFI, this is a good place to chill. The service is good here though.

I was in that place 2 minute after my arrival in the town of Boquete. I heard the music, get closer and what a nice terrace... It's right in front of the park, on your left when you are looking at it. Nice ambiance, nice food and a nice place. They had a band playing in the evening when I... More

i took a detour to boquete and ran into this place. they have great pizza and wings, even the nachos were good. i do have to say the mixed drinks were a little expensive but it is a very nice place. watch out if you order a blue lagoon, its very strong but youll enjoy your busride back to david.

We ate lunch here, just stumbled on it. Nice inside/outside dining area off the main square in town. The shrimp pizza with veggies was perfect for lunch. The Ceviche (Corvina) was okay, a bit overly salted for my taste. Enjoyed it and would do lunch here again!

We live in Boquete. Before we moved here, we used to go out for pizza once a month (the other three weeks my wife makes a fantastic pizza at home) (I grew up in Chicago, and am lucky to have a wife who tolerates my cravings for pizza). So I went online looking for the “best pizza in Boquete”. In... More
