Merely average cooking. Not a memorable experience. Waitress very personable. Out of the way location; you'll need a map to find it.

Great Peruvian food. Huge menu which includes their speciality, seafood. Try the chef's seafood specials on the menu - absolutely to die for. They cook with traditional Peruvian flavors (garlic, ají/peppers, lemon, etc.). Try the specialiy drink of Peru - Pisco Sour - I only know about it because I had it when I was in Peru. I actually live... More

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.
