“Expecting a better dinner”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Last night I revisited this restaurant and wanted to try something different from the pizza and pasta items that are very good. I ordered pollo asado (grilled chicken) with parmesan cheese.
The chicken was black on one side from over cooking and the meat was covered with a tomato/parmesan sauce. The restaurant was packed and it would have taken forever to get a new dish. My companion had the bar b que ribs and this dish was well prepared. Also, this is the second or third time the rear patio was closed. (Tango lessons) I enjoy the rear patio area because of the view of the caldera.

“The best pizza in town”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Boquete has numerous restaurants and it would be true to say that you could eat in a different location each day for a month. So the competition is fierce and every establishment is looking for an edge. The Posada has an edge and it is called pizza. The menu offers two pages of different toppings and they come in personal, medium and family size. If I had to compare the pizza at Posada to a North American restaurant I would say that it is similar to Pizza Hut but with a much lighter, crispier crust. My wife and I shared a family size vegetarian and we stuffed ourselves. It was presented hot out of the oven on a pizza board and the flavors blended together very well. The Posada also offers steak, local and sea caught fresh fish and an array of appetizers. The bill, with tax and tip came to $ 25.00, but that was without any alcohol, just pop.

One word of advice though - the Posada is a ´family´restaurant which means that the noise level can be high. The night we were there, two drunks at an adjacent table did everything they could to let the whole restaurant know what they were thinking. It definitely put a damper on what was a very nice meal.

I would definitely recommend the Posada as a must do while you are in Boquete.

“Unfriendly service”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

After several weeks in Panama, we didn't expect excellent service, but the staff at Posadas acted like they wanted us to just go away. The food was so-so (very tough steak). We were disappointed because we'd heard good things. Hopefully it was just an off night.

“Best Pizza in Town”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

La Posada has the best Pizza in Boquete. The pizza menu is very creative, fresh, and really, really good. They also have a back room that can be rented out for special occasions. Sometime they will have Tango classes and demonstrations.

“Good Pizza...But, Be Patient.”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

What a nice surprise. Very good pizza in Boquette, Panama...who would have known? We had pizza two nights during our stay in Boquette. Each night we shared a medium pizza with two different topping combinations. The pepperoni and meat toppings were great!...and, the Hawaiian combination was different but very tasty. They actually put cinnamon on the pineapple and during the cooking process the pineapple caramelizes. The result is almost a "Cinnabon" meets pizza creation. While you may wait a bit for your pizza to arrive...what ultimately arrives at your table is a delightful surprise.
