Few Boquete Panama restaurants have the history of the Bistro Boquete. Some like El Sabroson have been here longer, but the Bistro was the first local restaurant catering to the expat community. If you search for Bistro Boquete on this blog you will see a great deal about it several years ago and then as others opened and management changed the Bistro fell off my radar.
The Bistro is back, it now operated by a local couple doing high quality local foods.
I have visited three times in the past few months and think the current Bistro has one of the best quality to value formulas in Boquete. It is not the Rock, nor the Panamonte, but provides very good food at very reasonable prices.
If you enjoy salads I recommend giving them a try, I eaten the greek salad there twice and it was excellent and consistent. I went back and tried their $3.50 mini burger, nothing mini about it. This cost less than a McDonalds 1/4 pounder in David.
Mayra tried their corvina and she said it was good, fresh and well prepared. I don’t think she liked the sauce.
The service each time was very good, courteous and efficient.
I think many locals have missed a good restaurant because we did not know what the current stat of the Bistro might be. I think you should try it for a good, medium priced meal in a convenient location in the center of town. The 11pm closing also makes is one of few palces open for a late night snack.
The Bistro is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11am -11pm. They accept credit cards and provide the jubilado discount without any problem.
I will return, you probably want to see what you enjoy from their rather large varied menu.
