It's like you're in a time warp and back in the Hamptons in 1917. Super pretty place. Fantastic food. And the prices aren't cheap but not really that high either. Good value. Try the...well, try anything. It'll be good.

We really enjoyed the two meals we had at the Panamonte. We ate on the patio and in the bar, and enjoyed the old school tropical experience: cool breezes, bamboo chairs and palm trees. Sort of expected to see Earnest Hemmingway having a mohito. The service was first class and the food was the best we had in Boquette. The second night we ate there they were out of hamburger, which was kinda strange, but overall we had a wonderful evening.

The Panamonte Restaurant is a great place to cosy up for a fireside glass of wine or decently stiff cocktail after a long day in the Boquete hills.

Dominated by the beautiful looming stone fireplace the outdoor area is welcoming and rustically elegant. It is the place to seat yourself (the lovely woman we sat with dubbed the interior a movie set from "Titanic").

The menu is solid if unadventurous—the pumpkin soup was the highlight of my meal. For travelers on a budget, simply a drink at the Panamonte is enough to make you feel one with the coffee traders of yore.

This place is just class. From the restaurant, food and staff to the outside bar in the back with the two fireplaces, it is all class. The fireplaces make for a relaxing evening after a meal or just going for a drink.

Spent 3 days at Panamonte and ate some truly fabulous food. The Eggs Benedict were the best I have ever had, in panama. Also, the Swedish pancakes with cane syrup and fresh jams and breakfast sausages hit the spot. We were at the jazz festival in Bouquete and partying late and drinking more than usual, so a good comfort meal prepared us for the next event. I would also recommend the filet and pumpkin soup.......and the salads!!! Everything was great
