This restaurant has a nice, comfortable location right next to the river. Their menu has an excellent variety, the drinks are good, and the staff friendly and well-trained. The sesame encrusted salmon is my personal favorite, but there are lots of choices.

Every time we visit Boquete we have dinner at Rock. Can’t be missed it’s the best restaurant of the area.

The Rock is a beautiful open restaurant with fine service and excellent pork ribs (all you can eat on Thursday nights). Also nice bar service and very good wine list, mostly Argentinian and Chilean wines.

Oof, I love this place but the quality of ribs they are using for this promotion is really bad. BBQ sauce is also seemingly just sugar and ketchup. Stay away from this promotion, its actually disgusting !

I had been in Boquete a couple of times before but I hadn´t been able to visit this place. The Rock is definitely a place you cannot miss. Good food and service. The place is really nice. We will come back for sure.

Panoramic views, a crackling fireplace and an outdoor wooden deck beside a garden overlooking the Palo Alto River, sets a cozy and uncomplicated atmosphere to enjoy a fabulous meal. We serve down to earth, bistro-style, comfort food! We believe the enjoyment of food is a fundamental part of life.
