Good fresh and carefully prepared local food in a simple unpretentious location well away from the main road. Warm welcome from Patricia...... who specialises in local Chiriqui ingredients. It felt like a private dining room as our well-attended group were the only diners - and all the happier for it. Recommended highly.

Cerro Brujo is a top-notch restaurant. The chef is well-known in other countries as well. Although small, the people are very cordial. You could not find a more up-scale restaurant in the World than this one. It is expensive, however, but well worth it. The food is delicious.

We recently returned from visiting with family in Panama City and David, Panama. While driving around Volcan, we visited the Cerro Brujo Gourmet Restaurante. Everything ... and I mean everything ... is fresh. We ordered spinach soup, and although we waited a few minutes for the soup, it is made with spinach grown on the restaurant property. We watched as... More

I went with the family as I read these reviews and to my surprise it was the worst food experience in Volcan. For the price they charge and their quantity of food available is poor only a few plates of each choice. Spider webs everywhere. You can go if you what to but don't waste your time and go somewhere... More

We happened upon this gorgeous spot on Mother's Day and were delighted with the food and service. They were offering a Panamanian lunch that was well executed and plated with love. Amble amounts of flavorful dishes and tea freshly picked from their garden to finish.

This is our second trip to Cerro Brujo and I was pleased with every aspect of it. The four of us arrived an hour before opening but we were seated, no problem. Two of us ordered wine, which arrived in the bottle and was considered excellent by our friends. My wife and I had the pumpkin soup, which was recommended... More

This was my second visit to the restaurant. Last time was around 2 years ago and it was great. This time went with entire family (party of 7). My wife and I ordered Rissoto. It was WAY too salty, impossible to eat it. We had to return both entire plates. They did not apologize nor offer any substitution. And they... More

The food is prepared with local and fresh vegetables, species and meats. You can tell behind each dish there is passion, fun and good taste in its preparation and presentation. The atmosphere is non pretentious yet has a touch of class and is very relax. Very friendly staff and very knowledgeable Chef that loves and follows her passion for the... More
