“Superb ! The best of boquete ..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

You can identify right away the quality and freshness of the ingredients, the wholesome flavors of its dishes, and the outmost quality of an elegant and yet home tasting cuisine. Highly recommend it .. and dont miss the Duck Confit .. if I could would give it 10 stars !

“A slice of Provence in Boquete”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Boquete has one restaurant for every 500 inhabitants, but this is the only distinctly French restaurant I've found locally. Formerly owned by a Frenchman, it has recently changed hands and is operated by a friendly, outgoing couple from the American Southwest. The former chef and staff have been maintained, and therein lies the future prospects for this charming eatery.

I was drawn to the place by a menu listing of some of my favorite Provencal dishes (e.g., eggplant flan), but was discouraged from ordering them when the friendly owners seemed to be unfamiliar with either the name or the nature of the dishes in question. Reference to "confit de canard," for example, elicited blank stares. Only later did I realize that the kitchen had a full understanding of each dish offered, but I was already committed to my "safe" choice--"the daily special"--a very satisfying pork filet with mushrooms and accompanying vegetables. Another member of my party took the rabbit dish, which was very good. I would certainly return to this restaurant in the future with the intention of ordering the kind of dishes whose promise drew me there in the first place.
