The food wasn't very impressive. The asparagus were canned and paired with a goofy mushroom sauce. I wouldn't have ordered if they would have specified they were canned. Over all didn't enjoy the meal and wouldn't go back.

The food was excellent! Pedro was an attentive waiter! The value for the quality was fair. We would return here the next time we visit. Hats off to the chef! The presentation and taste was spectacular!!!

Quaint little place one block off the main road in the center of town. It is owned and operated by one woman that take pride in every thing involved. If you taste lean toward the local food this place is good. Give it a try, everything is good. Been there a dozen times and haven't been disappointed.

Terrible food, even worse service, over-priced and then to top it off, they add the tip to your bill and insist that you pay it. Tipping is not a custom in Panama, and I refuse to tip for terrible food and service.

Could be better, needs more ambiance, and a little more of that magic chick touch in their plates. Not bad, but could improve.

Maybe our first clue should have been.....there were no other customers. While we were eating there no one else showed up. Even so, the service was not good and the food was just ok. I would not go back. There are too many good restaurants in Boquete to give this place a second shot.

My husband and I lived in Boquete for 6 months and we loved eating here. It's a tad expensive but very good! We loved their seafood chowder soup. You cannot go wrong eating here. The service is excellent!

Great seafood and all types of dishes. My only regret is that I did not find out about this restaurant until my last 2 weeks there. Definitely make this place a priority.
