Boquete probably has more restaurants per capita than any other city in Panama.Whether you like a restaurant or not is based on many criteria, mostly subjective. Was the food good, was the service good, was it clean, etc. I am written this with my opinions only about the restaurants I enjoy. I recommend Trip Advisor for much more information and the opinions of others.
Restaurante Baru : Right at the central park, open 11am- 10pm for food longer for a bar. A recent and excellent addition to Boquete Dining. 3/11
La Posada: A good grill, great pizza, live music on Saturday nights. In my opinion they have the best pizza in Boquete and the best steak.
Sugar and Spice: I call Sugar and Spice a Bakery because it is, but it is also a great place to have a sandwich on fresh baked bread. They also have a great breakfast. Highly recommended. 3/11
Punto de Encuentro Cafe: Olga is wonderful. The food is good and the atmosphere is still good.
Panamonte: A past Sunday brunch favorite. It has been several years since I have had breakfast there. 3/11
Central Park: Watch the town wake up and enjoy something tasty. I love the liver and onions for breakfast.
El Dorado Park: Alto Boquete, same menu as Central Park but lacking the atmosphere
Sugar and Spice: Great place for breakfast except on Wednesday when they are closed. I love the breakfast burrito.
Big Daddy’s: I have not had a burger but the word on the street is they are excellent
Yings: Good food a little more expensive than David but better than most in David and a lot more convenient in Alto Boquete.
Continental Country Style
Panamonte: Usually top flight, avoid busy days, they do run out of food. Eat in the bar (just don’t take our spot near the fireplace)
Oasis: One the best five in Boquete for dinner. Great service, good chef and usually good food. We have returned several times and recommend the Corvina, Trout, filete and Rack of Pork.
Art Cafe (formerly La Crepe: One of five new November 2007 openings. Excellent crepes and more. Revisited several times and I can recommend their specials, excellent food.
Big Daddy’s: Loved by many and offering unique foods at medium prices. A Fine Diner by all standards.
The Rock: The Rock is solid. This is the place for a dinner undisturbed by loud music or a blaring television. It is all about good food, good service and consistency. The management is international, the cuisine international and the quality of product as good as you will find in all of Panama, not just Boquete. The Rock has withstood two floods literally destroying it and hopefully it will withstand the test of time.
Mikes Global Grill. Good food, good entertainment and worth the trip for a truly international menu.
One Eyed Franks: The Bronx come to Boquete. Read the while board for specials
Antojitos: Trini’s food is as always excellent.
Cafe Nelvis: Still my favorite for fried chicken. They have moved across from the elementary school Bajo Boquete.
Central Park: My favorite Boquete Breakfast spot, great view of the park and usually good eats.
Milquiburger : I still have not tried a burger because the fried chicken so damn good.
Boquete Fish House: Excellent fresh seafood prepared as you want it. Check the board for the daily specials.
Machu Picchu: We have not returned for some time so nothing new to say.
Sugar and Spice: I call Sugar and Spice a Bakery because it is, but it is also a great place to have a sandwich on fresh baked bread. Highly recommended. 3/11
