We have 5 kids and were looking for somewhere economical and quick to eat in Boquete and this worked great. No menu, but they tell you what they have when you come in. The waitress was very sweet and it was super fast after ordering. If your Spanish isn't very good, you can probably figure out the food options. We had 2 bistek and 3 pollo. Came with rice, beans, a small plantain and a salad. It was tasty and cost $4 each plate. Good food, fast service, friendly local people.

Dad & I like this place for lunch. They have a fixed menu that varies from day to day, Panamian food. Pork, beef, chicken vegetarian, you get a choice. Comes with choice of two salads, choice of several veggies, and tea. All for $4-5.00. Also, have huge bowls of thick soups. Their food is consistently good, and large servings. Tiny place, if you don't come early, you may have to wait, and if you come later, they may run out of a popular item. If you are visiting, or live here, not a place to miss.

Monday nights in Boquete, many restaurants are closed. We had heard of The Orchid and found them open. There are no menus and no English is spoken. Whatever is prepared for that evening is offered. Bascially it is a chicken or pork meat simply prepared, rice, salad and Panamanian lemonade. This lemonade is not overly sweet as is common with most Panamanian drinks. The food was simple but good just like a family dinner should be. It was $9 for two.

This is a local Panamanian restaurant. I used to eat here all the time (like once a week), but in the last 6 months, it just hasn't been as good as previous years (I first started eating here in 2012). I eat at another Panamanian restaurant now. If you are new to trying this place, it will be fine - good size meal for the price. Their idea of a salad is more like a garnish (but Panamanians don't seem to be big on leafy greens / salads). Good pinto beans. They usually have 4 different meats to choose from, but this place is popular so they can sell out of items on the menu by 2pm. The staff are efficient and friendly. The restaurant is conveniently located in downtown Boquete near the police station.
