At first look George's is not much. I have noticed the word rustic used in several reviews and yes, that fits. The first night we ate there, we were looking for something light and so we got the pizza. Maybe we were not expecting much, but it was the best pizza I have eaten! Thin crust and very tasty. We...

Small charming restaurant. Its not luxury with plastic chairs but the its cosy. The fillet was out standing but the Gordon Bleu was just a chicken piece and not what was expected at all

This restaurant was recommended to us by the Inn at Palo Alto. We were warned that it was rustic, but good food. They weren't kidding about the rustic. However, it wasn't just rustic, it was filthy. I saw a french fryer on the counter that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. The chairs are a mish-mash of lawn... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at George's on three occasions during our month-long stay in Boquete -- and every time was a wonderful experience. The restaurant itself is quite rustic, with a stone fireplace and a semi-open structure and very basic seating -- yet the FOOD is fantastic. The chef/owner is a very friendly, welcoming and talented man who... More

Absolutely brilliant - if you are in striking distance go there - fantastic food, great ambience, and George is the one of a kind that makes the place special.

The food was fantastic. The Peruvian ceviche was fresh and tasty with freshly baked crunchy tortilla chips. The lobster bisque was delicious with well balanced concentrated flavour. All fresh mostly farm to table, George grows his own vegetables and herbs to enhance the taste of the dishes. Don't be put off by the rustic setting, it's well worth a visit.

We were staying in Palo Alto Hotel and pass by restaurant because we smelled the firewood. We were offered a cheap argentinian wine with almost no taste. As entree we ordered a lobster cream that was extremely salty. My friend ordered a peruvian ceviche in which they added ginger. The test of the ginger killed all the fish flavor. Main... More

The smell of a wood fire draws you into the dark restaurant. George has been around Central America and is an excellent chef and host. His unique entrees are delicious and not like anything else you will find in the area. I had the Egyptian appetizer and was rewarded with delicious hummus, and other middle eastern specialties. The stuffed avocado... More

Located next to Boquete Garden Inn. Loved the rustic look - George is likable & friendly. We had traveled to Boquete last year so were surprised that he had raised his prices so much. That wasn't the only negative aspect. We expected the rustic charm, but we're totally blown away by how filthy the place was. I mean cobwebs and... More
