Felipe, the new chef from Valencia is anxious to please and circulates among the dinner guests - service is attentive if a bit amateurish. A limited menu: the dinner offering consisted of soup, hamburger with fries, Club sandwich, stuffed chicken breast with vegetrables, or Paella. There were three options for the Paella - I opted for the traditional seafood variety... More

I loooove this hotel! And Toco Madera makes for a nice place to hang and have a drink in the hotel. It's cozy too.

This place is closed & out of business when we were in Boquete, Panama August 2015. The Hotel (where it was located) has sort of unique architecture (a la 1960's) & all of the restaurant's equipment, tables, chairs etc. are still in the former loation.

Visited this restaurant when I stayed at the hotel in the same building. The free breakfast we got from the hotel consisted of a small bowl of not especially fresh fruit, some toast and a small box of strawberry jam. So we had to go into town and eat a second breakfast before we started our day. We had dinner... More

Asked for crackers or bread for the soup and it was eaten before they brought anything back. Manager asked how everything was and we told him but he just... More

Good seafood menu in the restaurant. Good service. Not inexpensive but worth it. The bar menu has a nice selection, also not inexpensive, but also worth the price
