We've been to Restaurant Baru several times over a few years, hoping it would surprise us and give good service and food. Nope. This last time we arrived and got a table for 4. As usual, we had to go to the bar to get our own menus, after 20 minutes of waiting. Another 20 minutes and we received drinks... More

I went there to see the football game which they had so everything else didn't matter for me but...the food wasn't very good and the service was sloooow. But the Green Bay Packers won the game and I got to watch it so I was happy!

Baru is one of those great places to run into old friends and make new ones. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere is great. You can either enjoy a cozytabel inside, set in the couches and get to know your nieghbors or sit outside at a covered table. The pizza is great, as is the filet. Ceviches and chicken fingers...

Waited over an hour for our food, had to flag the waiter down on 3 separate occasions to get menu, order and to ask the whereabouts of the food we had ordered over an hour previously. We only ordered a burger and a pizza. When it arrived, the pizza was cold and the burger contained cheese even though we had... More

Not the nicest place to eat. We had lunch there and the meat platter was far from good. Tacos al pastor were also not good. Its eatable but not tasty at all.

My wife and arrived late one evening and happened into Restaurant Baru. Call it luck or call it fortune, the atmosphere and food were excellent. We shared a chicken Caesar salad and personal pizza, both tasty and enjoyable.

Very pleasant surroundings, both inside and outside, good service, great location right on the central park square. We have eaten here several times over the last 6 months and always enjoyed the food. The burger meals are huge, we can split one between the two of us. We really enjoyed the tasty hawaiian pizza !!

My wife and I arrived in Boquete late in the afternoon and went searching for a restaurant and found Baru. We found ice cold drinks and tasty food. My wife ordered the personal pizza and I got a Caesar Salad. We ended up sharing and loved it all!

This restaurant is centrally located with a nice patio and good food. You have to watch out for the diesel trucks that seem to like parking across the street from the patio because the fumes make it impossible to enjoy your meal or drink there. There a couple of times and the trucks just kept idling outside so didn't go... More
