Went for lunch here one rainy afternoon. We had a very nice lunch while relaxing out on the front porch, while savoring two very nice glasses of wine. Our food was very good and the restaurant was very old school Panama. Definitely worth a visit.

To be honest, I was expecting more from this restaurant. We ordered a soup, shrimps, sea bass and a fettuccine. Only the soup was above average. The ambiance is obviously really good. But don't expect much from the food.

We went there for dinner and ordered the quinoa salad as an appetizer, the spaghetti ragu, filet minion with pepper sauce and the fruit sorbet for dessert. All dishes were amazing and so was the glass of Pinot Noir we ordered. The service was great and friendly and they were very helpful in addressing our requests. They made sure that... More

It seems that many locals prefer going to the Hotel's bar area to dine, probably because of the nice ambiance. We were a party of 4 people and we really enjoyed the food and service!

Beautiful menu with generous size meals. The formal dining room has an "old world" charm. In Boquete, it's probably the closest to "a la carte" "high end" fine dining. Well-priced menu considering the quality and size of the meals. Keeping in mind that this is Panana, the Chiriqui province, and comparing to other restaurants of similar standard in the area,...

I dont understand how this resturant is rated # 6. I went to the "Top restaurants in Boquete" and Panamonte is deffinetly the best. I had the Trout almonds and it was the best I ever had and the price was so fair. I cant even explain how upset I was each time I waisted time and money in restaurants... More

Went for a casual lunch with friends. Beautiful grounds! The shrimp with garlic was perfect for me with lots of garlic! My husbands mushroom ravioli had fresh porcini. The Rum cake was awesome and packed a punch! Good wines all around. Would certainly recommend!

My husband, 2 friends and I dined at Panamonte in the Bar, which is our favorite place to sit. The ambiance is relaxing and the fireplaces are a nice touch for chilly Boquete evenings. I ordered one of the classic pasta dishes, my husband picked a Club Sandwich with fries, and our friends both had Cheeseburgers. As always, we were... More
