Excellent place to eat, or enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine. There are many different areas to sit: main dining area, bar, terrace, the gazebo with the fireplace. All have views of the gardens, river and mountains. For the quality and size of meal, it is well-priced. The service is excellent, especially with maitre'd Callisto (sorry if the... More

My husband and I belong to the Rotary Club in Boquete, Panama and we have recently hosted 2 sizable luncheon events at this restaurant. We found the owner, Anayansi and her team members to all be easy to work with and extremely professional. Since we had to limit our menu choices I can only comment on 2 items but both... More

This is one of the old standbys of Boquete. It is centrally located, right in the heart of the town. The food is very good and the service is always consistent. The hotel is also a good place to stay, if you are a visitor. It is situated right on the river so the ambiance is very pleasant.

This Hotel & Restaurant sits across the river from the main downtown area. While its often a center of activity (the weekly 'town market' is held next door, it generally is a quiet, peaceful surrounding. The restaurant features an enclosed outdoor Gazebo for dining an addition to the large interior dining room. There are many items on the menu, but... More

Our Boquete hosts took us to El Oasis for a special meal and we all raved about the experience. The atmosphere and service were excellent. We ate in an outdoor setting by a lively fireplace, and our waiter was attentive and professional. Members of our group ordered pasta, rack of pork, beef filet and fresh corvina and all plates were... More

My Fodor's guidebook recommended the restaurant at the Oasis Hotel. My hotel in Boquete advised me other restaurants in town were better. I should have listened to my hotel. The service was excellent - but I was the only diner. Until ......... a large tour group arrived to fill the bar and take photo ops of their group. The food... More

Ate there dinner twice after the first time experience. Also had an enjoyable breakfast. Good quality food, not your typical Panamanian kitchen. Upscale presentation and great service without exorbitant prices. Close to the town center but a little bit off, on the other side of the bridge, short walk from the town's center. Located in the hotel of the same... More

We stayed at El Oasis and ate in their restaurant on our first night in town for the Boquete Blues and Jazz Festival. I never expected this quality at a small hotel restaurant. We were a party of 8, and everyone had a great meal. The best, in my opinion, was the filet of corvina (fish) with a sauce of... More
