We had Christmas dinner here. The bar is a lot of fun. There is a really nice stone fireplace outside that with a covered roof. The drinks were very good and reasonably priced. The service was a little spotty. The servers were well intentioned, but I think most were new.

The dining room was a throwback to a different time. If you like that, you will enjoy the decor. I prefer more contemporary and found this a little stodgy. The service improved in the dining room and everything came out quickly. The food was fairly good, nothing really stood out. This was a defined meal for Christmas, so it is probably not a good guide for a regular trip.

Used to be one of my favorite restaurants. As time went on the service got worse and the food got worse also. They used to have a great trout with almonds and now they've taken that off the menu. Got tired of waiting a half-hour before getting served and not satisfied with the customer service.

Our favorite among the town choices. Beautiful setting more casual by the fire and fine dining in the front. Well appointed and great service!

We booked a table for dinner at the restaurant. The atmosphere of the place brings us back to the early times of Boquete's tourism. The restaurant has an indescriptible charm of the 50's, unique in Boquete. Food is beautiful, wines excellent and the service extremely efficient. Prices are reasonable for such a gastronomic experience.

Two of us couples have been celebrating our day-apart anniversaries together for the last 3 years and have chosen the Panamonte restaurant 2 out of the 3 years. Ambience, setting, and quality of the food are top notch. It is a little on the pricey side, but for a special occasion, it fits the bill. Wish they had a few more choices of main courses though. We can recommend the steak, the broiled fish, and the shrimp fettuccine and ,of course, their strawberries and cream in season. The only reason it is lacking 5 stars is that we were kept waiting for our waiter a number of times. It did give us more time to chat, but it got too much when we had to go find someone so we could pay the check before we left!!
