“Excellent restaurant, quiet rooms, convenient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We stayed at El Oasis for a week and felt so comfortable we could move right in! The room rates include a terrific hot breakfast (pancakes are the best we've ever had), the room was cleaned perfectly every day and staff was attentive to our requests. We had a basic room with queen bed and private bath. These types of rooms also have use of a living room with full size refrigerator for your wine and cheese, etc. There is a safe in the room, shower is large and has hot water but the bathroom is small. There are two nightstands in the room but no other furniture except a plastic folding table and chair. A dresser would be great, a larger shelf in the bathroom to unpack toiletries and shelves in the bedroom. The bed is very comfortable and the sheets and blankets of good quality. There is a large indoor/outdoor restaurant. The menu has a nice variety of pastas, salads, entrees, appetizers and desserts. Local residents eat there routinely but only hotel guests can enjoy the breakfasts. The location is terrific, right on the river and a very short walk to everything in downtown Boquete.

I'm with a group and we were a big party, 8 to be exact and we showed up on a busy Saturday and the restaurant was able to accomodate us with no problems. The service was way above average and the food was too...

“Private Garden Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Whether in the dining room, out in the gazebo by the river or under the cover of the garden area the food is good. This is a real first class Panamanian operation. We enjoy the un-rushed service which is also responsive to your needs. Good food.

“Always very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The restaurant is comfortable, clean and in pleasant surroundings. The food is always good (lamb, filet, etc). And Calixto, the head waiter, is terrific! He makes it a pleasure to dine there (as does Bellisario, the chef).
