When George first opened his restaurant, it was amazing. He can really cook and he isn't afraid to put something different in front of you. His fusion of middle eastern flavors with local Panamanian ingredients is really something special. Alas, we started seeing less love in his preparations and stopped visiting the restaurant. I think his priorities got changed while... More

We had dinner here while staying at the Boquete Garden Inn nearby. The ambiance is cosy and the food very good; I ate ceviche and hummus (both very good), whereas my husband ate his chicken so voraciously that I didn't have the time to taste it! If you are staying in Palo Alto it is definitely worth a visit, and... More

Went to George's two nights in a row with my family. The first night there was an issue with the fish my wife and youngest daughter ordered. It was simply a bad cut of fish. I fully understand that George makes the meal and not the fish. This was brought to George's attention and he went above and beyond to... More

George is a master chef. We came back to have the filet mignon 3 times. It was that good! Whenever we were there George always was doing the cooking. He has a real mastery of sauces and there was always something real decorative about the way the meal was delivered.

This restaurant was walking distance from our hotel and served the best fine food we had in Panama. We will definitely return on our next trip.

We have been in Boquete a year and just recently made our first visit to Georges'. The ambience is terrific. We went for a Saturday night special which included soup and desert. Both of our entrees, fish and lamb, were delicious. The desert was especially good. We would certainly go again.

We went to George's for the first time on Saturday night and it was excellent. George was offering 2 specials, I had the seared tuna and my husband had lamb. Both entrees came with soup, side of vegetables and dessert and ALL were excellent at a terrific value of just $12 each. The atmosphere is fun and funky, casual tables,... More

In our short stay in Boquete we ended up eating twice at George's Grill. Both meals were delicious. The restaurant is rustic style, no frills, but you get to enjoy eating in a nice chill environment and everything is made from scratch and cooked on a wood fire stone grill. The owner George does all of the cooking and he... More

This is one of those hard reviews, because the owner himself is a friendly guy, but that was the only positive experience my wife and I had staying at Fireside Inn. We had booked for 4 nights, but we decided to leave on the 2nd day. Breakfast was ridiculous. The omelette was terrible and greasy. Not even wanted to try... More
