Don’t expect here fancy dinning – it`s like a family run kitchen that cooks every day a limited menu, nevertheless we were pleasantly surprised with the tasty food and welcoming service. We tried our Spanish as it`s true that no one spoke English but that was not really necessary as you`ll figure out quickly what`s available. The fruit smoothies that were included in the menu were also very good.
For the price (5$) I believe this restaurant is a very good value.

This is a very interesting place that one of my local friends suggested. We went for lunch a couple of times. They do not have a menu, but rather tell you what they have available. They give you a free juice with lunch which is fresh made. We tried the fish soup, the chicken soup, the fish lunch and a chicken lunch. Food was very tasty and our total meal was about $10 for 2 people both times. The people that work there are very friendly. It is a great place to try Panamanian cuisine. Not sure if they speak English, but with our very limited Spanish it was fine.

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.
