30 mins until we received a menu, waitress were fighting between them... A real disappointment.

I had high expectations because of other comments seen here - I guess service has declined.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Boquete. Over the years, it has maintained its high standards. You will be surprised to find a wood fire at the bar. For a romantic and relaxing evening, start with drinks by the fire and then move to the elegantly decorated dining room for dinner. The mushroom risotto is excellent, as are the pork chops (smoked or otherwise). We were however shocked to see the corkage fee has gone up to USD20 per bottle!

For our last evening in Boquette, we splurged on a dinner at the well-appointed Panamonte Restaurant. You eat in a well-appointed classic dining room with hundred year old paintings.

This is a nice restaurant, probably the fanciest one in Boquete. Beautiful grounds and nice atmosphere. Food was pretty good as well. But be prepared to pay North American prices. Our dinner for two with two iced teas was around $60 with a tip. We got there early on a week night but surprisingly the place filled up pretty quickly. It's popular with Panamanians.
