“Yummy specials, good service, attractive small restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Although Panamanian food is rather bland (rice, beans and meat), we enjoyed our lunch at this lovely, small family place. Clients were a mix of expats and locals. It is reasonably priced.

“Good value for the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

This is one of the better "Tipico" spots in Boquete. For around three dollars you can get a basic meat and two sides lunch, featuring pork, chicken or beef. The place is tourist friendly, has limited outside seating, and the help has a sufficient grasp of English to answer menu questions. Beer is also served here.

“Great Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Great little local spot just off the plaza. Our server was very sweet. The menu was verbal and my spanish is pretty bad. But it turned out they have a very simple menu. Fish, pork or beef pretty much. Then you pick a couple sides. Dinner was great and at about $3.50 a plate i almost ordered a second one. Its a great locals spot that you should check out for sure.

“Don't let the street view turn you away!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

While from the road it doesn't,t appear that great. The food is very good traditional Panamanian food. We had the chicken with rice, beans, salad and pop and water for two people for $9.00 total.
