I stayed at the Qhia Hostel in Santa Fe de veraguas and they recommended a local Cambodian restaurant. Yes, Cambodian in the mountains of Panama. The food was excellent. I had the fish stew which was excellent. The chef, a woman from Cambodia, is the wife of the owner. The owner, from Holland, acts as waiter/bartender. The ambience is wonderful. An incredible view of the mountains out the sliding doors to the patio. The combination of excellent food, a friendly welcome and a wonderful setting make the restaurant well worth a trip.
