At first look George's is not much. I have noticed the word rustic used in several reviews and yes, that fits. The first night we ate there, we were looking for something light and so we got the pizza. Maybe we were not expecting much,...More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the Inn at Palo Alto. We were warned that it was rustic, but good food. They weren't kidding about the rustic. However, it wasn't just rustic, it was filthy. I saw a french fryer on the counter that...More

The smell of a wood fire draws you into the dark restaurant. George has been around Central America and is an excellent chef and host. His unique entrees are delicious and not like anything else you will find in the area. I had the Egyptian...More

Located next to Boquete Garden Inn. Loved the rustic look - George is likable & friendly. We had traveled to Boquete last year so were surprised that he had raised his prices so much. That wasn't the only negative aspect. We expected the rustic charm,...More
