Not a fancy place, but for cheap eats this had to be one of the best. We heard there were a couple of others somewhere in the vicinity of the main plaza but this one stays open really late and was close to our hotel,...More

The menu might be really limited (as I remember, only 4-5 options?), but the chicken we ordered was simply delicious. Was one of the only places still open when we arrived late at night in Boquete, and I would definitely recommend it. The man working...More

Very basic but very very good. The chicken and chips was excellent and great value. It was the biggest quarter chicken I have ever seen. Drinks were also very reasonable.

Tried the mixed grill which had chorizo, ribs, chicken and some kind of steak. Came with both fies and patacones for $18. Ordered a side salad for $2 extra. Our waitress initially forgot the water we'd asked for and had to be reminded but left...More

I eat here on a regular basis and find it a great place for tasty soups and local typical dishes. Restaurant is not fancy, but the food is good, and the service is friendly.

We stopped in here for lunch and it was great Panamanian food. We had one chicken and one beef lunch special. Can't go wrong here.

Best grilled chicken in town in a typical Panamanian atmosphere (meaning very basic interior with bright light and plastic chairs and some old fashioned pictures on the walls). A nice change to all the touristy restaurants in town. They also offer burgers and spareribs. Everything...More
