The food was decent and the service was above average for the area. I would have liked to have had a chance to try their all-you-can eat ribs on a Thursday night, but I wasn't in town for it. Maybe next time!

We've gone before and returned Thursday night for all you can eat ribs. Perfectly cooked with great BBQ sauce, served with a green salad and warm bread we dipped in EVOO and balsamic, (Italian style). Big & meaty I had 5 ribs..but I saw more bones on my husband's plate. Definitely finger lickin' good!

It's the best salmon dish that I've had in a couple of years. Yes, it has ambience (candles..), but the lighting was too dark - I... More

We stayed at the Riverside Inn and ate dinner at The Rock. The service was perfect, food was delicious, and the location is unbeatable. You can sit outside on the patio and hear the river rushing a few feet away. This was our favorite place to eat in Boquete!

The ambience was so fun with a live band on the patio on Monday nights. We danced the rumba after dinner. The back yard of the restaurant is picturesque with the river running behind it. We took some great pictures at sunset. Definitely enjoyable experience! The food was good but not the best we had in Boquete. My husband had... More
