“World class, most of the time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

The Panamonte Bar was for years the place to eat in Boquete. The food is often excellent, but sadly no longer consistent. The fantastic atmosphere compensates and this is a must stop for tourists, the bar, not the restaurant.

“Old Style Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a great old hotel and the dining room was open and well lit, which is not my favorite atmosphere. However, the food was very good. The service was a little slow, but the food made up for it.

“Luxury from another time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

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.

“A very cool restaurant experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

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.
