“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Good spot right on Central Park. They have wireless internet that is good for Skype. All of the food is good especially the pizza. Very friendly service. Reasonable prices and both inside and outside seating.

“Nothing special ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Prices are on the high side. Food was just okay, over salted like most of our meals in Panama.

Service is par. Waiter seemed inconvenienced when we asked for water refills because food was so salty. He did box up the left overs with out asking.

Los of patrons went outside to the sidewalk to smoke and all the smoke blew in to the dining area. Defeated the whole purpose.

Nice atmosphere though. Homeless person came up asking for money but was happier taking our salty to-go box of left overs. Which was wonderful that it did not go to waste because we could not have eaten them.

“Overpriced and nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

The food is mediocre and expensive for what you get. It's Boquete's version of Applebee's, except with rude service. Not worth visiting.

“The food looks good but the prices are straight out of California.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

I walked in, noticed that everybody was American and speaking English, saw the buffet, saw the prices and walked out. The only Panamanian I saw were the kitchen and wait staff.

“Lively and noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

This restaurant enjoys an excellent location at the city park and as a result many customers. However be aware that the service is slow and the prices change with the season.
