“Really good food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We came here twice on a recent trip to Boquete with our small children and it was a great find. The people were welcoming, the food delicious, and the margaritas are something else. Try and get a seat in the decked garden in the back of the restaurant, as it has a nice atmosphere.
A must visit, especially for lunch, if you are in Boquete.

“Good food and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

It has nice outside patio dining, surrounded closely by bush, very woodsy. The food was excellent. For dinner #1 my daughter and I shared an 8oz filet, perfectly rare, with a blue cheese sauce, onion rings and a generous , interesting side salad. With a drink each, our bill was $21. We met a new friend whose table we shared, and returned a couple of nights later for a dinner which was just as good, and good value. I had fish and chips which were excellent. Nadine had blackened tuna, perfectly rare. Larry, the owner is fond of saying that "your dinner was swimming yesterday." He buys directly from fishermen whenever possible and fillets them in the restaurant kitchen. He was entertaining and we enjoyed other diners sitting nearby.

We are absolutely thrilled you, your children and Nadine could enjoy all the best of BDG! Good food; hob nobbing with other happy visitors; and you were entertained by Big Daddy himself --Larry. It's completely ture about the fish swimming yesterday! And he's the man behind the filet and accompanying sauces. Thank you so much for writing in. We are truly happy that you have a wonderful time with us. Fondly, Elizabeth

“Just stopped for a beer and could easily go back to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Stopped here for a beer on a Sunday evening. The service was friendly and the beer cold. Although we did not eat the food looked and smelt really good. Will go next time we are. In town.
