“Great menu, service and ambiance. Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2010

Panamonte Inn is charming. Staff was lovely. Even though it is pristine and everything is white, the staff made us feel comfortable showing up with young kids. (We went early, when it first opened for dinner, which I'm sure helped.) The menu is exactly the kind of food we like. It probably raised our expectations a bit too high. The pumpkin soup and grilled hearts of palm were just OK. My trout was wonderful. My husband thought his fish (can't remember what he got) was a bit overcooked. Still, we would go back there and keep trying more, or just eat the trout again .... Enjoy.

“overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2009

went there for Christmas dinner... nice surroundings... maitre d'hotel running around made me tense... unnecessary... fixed price quoted via the phone reservation was less than the price on the bill... small token salad, ham or turkey entree (nothing special taste wise) arranged more like a plate of food from a cafeteria, comp glass of house wine, custard dessert... left hungry... $70+ for 2 for ham or turkey... hey this is Panama... then refused the pensionado discount, said it was a special... try El Pianista, north of Boquete, or El Oasis... decent ambiance, better value

“My very favorite restaurant in Boquete,atmosphere, food, decor A+”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2009

American owned and operated, I think, but very European, comfortable, always good food, excellent service, I especially like to eat in the bar/outdoor area. Waiters/bar staff really take care of you. You can't go wrong.
