This restaurant is very tastefully decorated and is in a gorgeous location. The food was great, especially the ribs. Service was friendly but on the slower side, so don’t come if you are in a rush. Great place for a long leisurely meal.

Second time I visited The Rock and really enjoyed the dinning experience. The mood is set perfect with its chimney and there was a live jamming (every Sunday) making some funky nice rhythms. Food quality is top and dishes are presented excellent.

Really nice surroundings, nice (but a little slow) service and clean. The food is semi-good, not the best we had i Panama, but probably in top 5.

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.
