Good food waiter did her best but she was the waiter, bartender and bussing for 6 tables. We waited around 35 min for our food which it turns out was very tasty . We shared Tilapia in garlic butter and Fish Burger with Fish Houses great onion rings. If you've got time to kill and don't mind the wait food... More

This is a great place for fresh fish. We had corvina (sea bass) with a salad and rice for $9.95. Drinks are inexpensive too. There is a long table that is perfect for a dozen people.

This is a small restaurant - maybe seats 30 or so. The dishes are well priced and everytime I've eaten there the food is good. You want local charm on a small scale, go here. The seafood dishes have never disappointed!

We have eaten here twice in the past week and have been very pleased. The specials on the Board on the way in are fresh and well prepared. My wife had the Yucca crusted Covina the first night and I had the fish and chips. Her fish was perfect and the fish and chips were good, just a little too... More

Skip this place. Edible I suppose but you have much better options in Boquete. Everything was fried, poor service.

This used to be our favorite restaurant on account of the great fresh fish, but their success has been their own undoing, because instead of hiring more staff to deal with more customers, they have chosen to overwork their staff and ignore customers instead. After being ignored for some time, we had to leave and go to the Art Cafe... More

Created by a guy that really knows his way around the the kitchen. I love the Corvina with papaya and jalapeño, green salad and vegetables. All the seafood is prepared well, coconut shrimp, lobster, snapper, and awesome fish and chips. Try the weiner schnitzel and cheese steak if you don't like fish, often getting a seat is the biggest problem.... More
