We would consider this the best fine dining restaurant in Boquete. We went twice and both times a good meal for a reasonable price in comparison to any of the other restaurants in its class in Boquete or elsewhere.

For us, it starts well if there is children's menu and it doesn't only contain chicken fingers (even if theirs are nice and served in a trendy basket).

Excellent onion soup, mushroom bruschetta, and an extensive starters menu. Filet mignon for 17$ (imported Ribeye for 34$ which was pricey so we passed, the quality of the local fillet was excellent). A decent selection of wines from 20 to 30$ meant we ate for 6 with starters, main, and a bottle of wine for under 100$.

It is slightly off the beat and track so you need to take a taxi but that will run you about 4 or 5 dollars from anywhere in Boquete. One issue, Monday's is advertised as Jazz night but no Jazz on the Monday we were there.

Great food, great service in a true fancy restaurant. The price tag reflected that though. I was impressed for small town Panama but I guess it is explained by all the expats living in Boquete these days. It was a bit of a drive from town at night so just make sure to ask good directions or take a cab for a few bucks.

The Rock restaurant was recommended to us on our first night in Boquete. We couldn't have been happier. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of food, which was outstanding. We had two soups, a filet and a pasta dish with shrimp. All were delicious, and we look forward to visiting again during our trip here.

We ate here twice on our stay - it was next to our excellent hotel and driving at night did not appeal. Food was interestingly prepared and well presented. Prices are a little high but I respect the fact that getting US steaks and other ingredients can't be that easy (or cheap). The Octopus main course was the highlight.
