Excellent Ceviche and terrific live acoustic music! Terrific beer too. Great atmosphere on outdoor patio in the town center across from the central park.

“Expat hangout?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The food was just average. The beers were icy cold with chilled glasses. Service was good and people watching was the best.

“Nice food, dry even on a rainy night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

The menu is not extensive, but what they do,they do very well!
My spouse had a pizza, which was perfect in his estimation, and I had a lovely corvina stuffed with langestino (Panamanian lobster) with some of the best vegetables I have had in my year plus in Panama!

Good food and service. Usually music on friday and saturday nights. Ask for Antonio. Try the pollo wrap, salads and excellent hamburgers.

“Try another place...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

There are so many choices in Boquete where the food is really good and so is the service.
In Baru you will take your chances. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. NEVER GREAT. You take a risk the the food you order will be really bad and you will have no way to make it right. We had stale and small on the last visit. Service is slow and inattentive at best. Great location, set your sights low and hope for the best.

Often out of many items on the menu, basics, like cheese and certain meats.
