Great place to hang out, sit outside and people watch. Some of the bar type food is pretty good. Service can be spotty and seems to favor Panamanians. Definitely worth a try due to location and atmosphere.

I was in Boquete for 4 days and my family and I ate there every single day! The pizza, fish sticks, steaks, and CEVICHES were all outstanding. The mojitos were also delicious! I can't wait to go back!

I had a sea food rice and it was one of the worst meal of my life and the service was not much better. Everyone working there do not seem to care. And it is very expensive too...

Pretty bad service, they don't give a damn about you. Then the pizzas, the small one (personal at $6.75+tax+tip) is so tiny it's really nothing. Other dishes can get you up to $20. So it's bad value, not tasty food with bad service. So why 2* - because I've eaten worse in my life, but definitely not recommended.

The service was....ok. It took them about an hour for the appetizer to arrive...and about another 40 mins for the main course to get here. Aside from that the atmosphere was really good. It had a blended feel of a European/Panama cafe. They offer free wifi and the selection of food is pretty good.

This restaurant offers a little bit of everything. The appitizers are good and the portions are big. The staff is friendly. There is indoor and outdoor dining, which is nice to have those options.

Enjoyed the food. The chicken finger are very good and the alfredo. The hamburger where quite good and filling. Did not care much for the cantonese rice with seafood. There cafe con leech is very good. May be a bit pricey and staff a bit slow, but the band was very good and had extra tv's for super bowl.

This place is located right across from Boquete town square and beside the bus stop.It is a great spot to people watch and chill. The mixed meat or seafood platters are good, not expensive. They have a band on certain nights.

Overpriced for the quality of food, the service was terrible. 1 star for having WiFi. $12 for a burger? What a joke

This place gets busy and they are a mess, very disorganized. They won't find you a table unless you keep asking every few minutes, we had to wait so long to be seated, they had tables available but they would not clean them right away.The problem is that this restaurant is very disorganized. I think only 2 servers for such... More
