“Incredible flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Stumbled in qith my girlfriend for a late lunch since we just arrived at a nearby hotel. First time at a peruvian restaurant. It was complety empty. The menu though already made our mouths water and what they finally delivered to our table was simply divine. We shared 3 dishes, the beefheart appetizer, cilantro soup and stir-fried seafoods. Every dish was a journey in itself and i went to the chef to shake his hand afterwards. Maybe this is average quality in.peruvian standards, no idea. For us, this was a highlight! Prices are all in between 8-13$, nothing cheap but certainly not expensive either. Service nothing special, but i care about the food, not about how fast the waitor runs or how much he chats me up. Go there and enjoy the flavours yourself!

“One of the best Peruvian food Restaurants in Boquete!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Since I arrived I noticed how well decorated the place was. Low light/candle light perfect for the ocassion. Relaxing atmosphere, cleanliness everywhere. Got a calypso shrimp's cocktail as an appetizer and it was nicely presented (pic below). The dinner had a unique peruvian flavor that i will definitely will try again. Fully Recommended.
pd: you can even get a souvenir for a really low price before leaving.

“Best meal. Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

An all around outstanding experience.

Food was great. Undoubtedly the best steak I have ever had. Everything the family tried was superior.

There were some locally crafted items for sale, some made by our waiter. The kids bought hats that they love, getting to know the maker was a plus.

“Very enjoyable dinner and best Pisco Sour ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This was our second visit here, once last year, and we will go back again before we leave Boquete. Our server was very friendly and attentive, and the menu is quite varied. We started with the Shrimp parmesan, and my husband the Mr.Artis soup (chefs special) which he loved. I had a coupon for a free pisco sour cocktail, which I had never tried before, and it could be my new favorite cocktail! It is apparently made with pisco brandy, egg whites, some type of bitters or sour, and dusted with cinnamon, yum!!! My entree was a sea bass stuffed with shrimp that literally melted in your mouth. Nice atmosphere. and great service.
