This is a small and very simple restaurant, with very few tables. It is run by the chef who is the owner and his wife who is from Boquete. It is a surreal ambiance because it is haphazardly decorated and while we dined they played Edith Piaf from a laptop into speakers and wine is served in champagne glasses. The food is good, however, and the prices are extremely reasonable by any standards. It is difficult to find a whole lobster at $18 nowadays! So if you are adventuresome, do try it, we found it great fun!

George's was a great surprise. Jason from the Garden Inn recommended we try George's, as it is just a short walk from the inn. It looks pretty rustic from the outside, but George's black lab, Bambi, will offer you a friendly greeting. We enjoyed wine, beer, and great food. We tried the Mediterranean appetizer plate, with George using his mother's recipes and veggies from his own garden. We also tried the lobster bisque, filet mignon, and the red snapper. Our plates were wiped clean. For dessert, we ordered a chocolate cheesecake. Instead, we got an amazing chocolate tort with creamy, light vanilla ice cream.

Even though the place looks rustic from the outside, the food was the best we ever had! We ate there three out of the four days we were in Boquete! Plus George was very friendly and accommodating. My hat is off to him! Food was just superb!!!

you read the reviews. The outside looks ok but the inside looks pretty ropey. You come here for the food which was excellent and priced substantially below what you'd pay in a fancy restaurant. The food also is not just a slab of meat cooked on the grill - it's much more sophisticated than that. George will also happily adjust dishes to meet requirements. A super place when you want good food at a cheap price and you've trekking the jungle all day!

George has the training, experience, and the natural talent for capturing the freshness and flavors of all the offerings on his menu: breakfast, lunch and dinner, for a unique dining experience that will more than satisfy your appetite while tantalizing your taste buds. Try his Eggs Florentine! Try his Ahi Tuna Sandwich! Try his Rustic Pizza! Try any of his dinner appetizers, entrees, and fabulous desserts! Wow! And, his prices are affordable! Boquete is fortunate to have George's culinary skills! Don't miss stopping...
