Everything ordered was fantastic from the salad appetizer, to the entree and even dessert. Breakfast the next day was also impressive.

What a beautiful place. I would have liked to have stayed here but we already had rooms elsewhere. We shared a bottle of very good wine and enjoyed excellent appetizers in the best lounge/bar I've been in. Fireplaces going at both ends of the lounge, a nip in the air, and soft music playing quietly in the background. What a welcome relief from the loud bars and restaurants everywhere else!

I truly expected more from this grande dame of Boquete. She is starting to show her age. Trout almondine is given a more rustic treatment, but it was delicious and exemplary. The pork belly with patacones starter was less impressive. It looked like a very confused person took chinese roast pork and slapped it on run-of-the-mill fried plantains. The bottle of rosé was slightly corked :-( and became more pronounced as we kept drinking it and it was too late to send it back. Dessert was a death-by-chocolate-type concoction that didn't live up to its moniker. I think Chef Collins needs to spend more time in the kitchen, or really train someone well to hand over the reins.

Great surroundings and was a great place to visit many years ago but they have moved their prices too high and now only visit occasionally.

Visited with friends, and its hard to beat the fireplace on a cooler/rainy night. Other than the fire, I was able to get my fix of carpaccio and their pasta ragu was sooooo good.
