George's was highly recommended to us by our hotel. We went our first night in Boquete, and while we had fun, it was a somewhat mediocre experience. We were absolutely freezing as the restaurant is essentially outdoors, and the service was incredibly slow. In their defense, they couldn't have been nicer or more proud of their restaurant, and we were with a large party, but till. . . . It took hours for us to be served our dinner. The food was eclectic -- international -- and had some gems, though most was simply average. We went back for takeout one night, and the hamburger was virtually inedible and the lobster very overcooked. George's is a funky, charming place and the people there are great -- it feels like summer camp! It's totally worth a visit, though it's not the place to go for a five-star meal.

Georges' Fireside Inn is not much to look at but the food was excellent, a lobster bisque that was as good as anything I've had in France followed by a halved grilled lobster and a chunk of fresh tuna all rounded off with a couple of Goerges Quava with ginger smoothies. If you're in Boquete give it a try.

My three friends and I got lucky by coming early @ 5:30. We each had different bocas and all were great. For the main course, I had the tuna, blackened to order. Deliciso! By the time we left, the place was filled to overflowing.

Great food, relaxed atmosphere, and very friendly staff. I would recommend this place as a must see on your vacation. You might even be rewarded with some live Egyptian punk rock by the cook.

George's Grill is a great find and he does a great job cooking up all the dishes on his menu. I think he has his current girlfriend doing a lot of the cooking now, well at least while we were there but the food was still amazing. George is a character and welcoming guy, wish we could have tried his lunch items, looks great. Highly recommend this restaurant.
