Went 2 nights in a row, sat at the dining room and the bar. Great service both nights. Good choice of wines and dishes were good as well. Recommended.

My husband and I ate dinner here in the fireplace bar area (very cozy) and also had lunch on the porch of the restaurant. My burger with avocado and bacon was so good that I went back for a second time. My husband loved his club sandwich as well, and said the French fries were the best he's had in Panama. Very reasonable price for these items, meal was under $20.

An atmosphere to experience. The rest - well, really only so-so at best. For a relaxing evening with friends it is a nice place - and probably for Boquete, it has a reputation.
Locals are treated well - as a tourist - severely limit your expectations.
The fireplace was nice as it was cold outside - and we did well to keep ours going.

Over-all, go look - it is nice and old world - then go get some great food and friendly service at Big Daddy's.

We never get tired of fireside dinners at the Panamonte. We've been going for ten years. The evening atmosphere is one of Boquete's best.

We were very excited to try this place, as it received great write-ups as well as recommendations from the locals. The food was good, albeit a bit rich and buttery, and the restaurant was warm and cozy for a romantic evening. Everything started out great, but somewhere between the cocktails and the soup, some local Boquete folks came in, and we were practically ignored for the rest of the evening (two tables that came in after us were served apps and entrees before we got our soup - I mean, how long does it take to serve soup?). The waiter recommended the lemon pie for dessert, which was good and tasty if you want an alternative to chocolate, but didn't hold a candle to real key lime pie.
