I had dessert first, the special "lemon" pie. What a delight! I surprised the waiter when I wanted dessert first. We had wonderful food and good service. We inquired about staying in the Inn for a night, but the man (no gentleman) at the front desk was cold, rude and downright uninterested in us or our business.
I am glad that we didn't meet him first or I would have missed out on a good meal served on their front porch.

It started out great. BLT was 4.95 and almond trout was 9.99
Now the BLT is 8.00 and the almond trout is 15.00 and they raised
the prices overnight and a lot of people quit going. a well drink
is 5.00. Most locals do not go there anymore. Nice atmosphere but
San Franciso prices and Boquete is a little mountain town with
no architecture and the high prices just make it a turn off.

This is a nice restaurant whether you are having breakfast, lunch or dinner. A little on the expensive side but the food is very good and so is the service.

This restaurant gets a lot of rave reviews, but I just don't agree with them. Yes the atmosphere can't be beat, especially in the bar with the fireplaces and the perfectly manicured grounds. So if you want to have a look maybe just go for happy hour.

We ordered a nice salad with cranberries, cheese, nuts, etc and it was very tasty. For the two entrees we had the mushroom risotto and the almond trout with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Everything except the spinach was quite bland and needed salt added for flavor. They were both cooked spot on and visually a feast, but seriously lacking in flavor.

Service was great, but due to the bland flavor wouldn't return or recommend to a friend.

This was our second stay at this beautiful historic hotel and this time we chose the only room with a outdoor fireplace. Very glad that we did as we spent countless hours during our weeks visit in the cool evenings ( as the temperature drops to 60 degrees or so ) watching the fire, the stars and enjoyed wonderful conversation. The room service is also excellent and the good is 5 stars.
