What a wonderful surprise this place is. Just had the best pumpkin soup I have ever eaten and the service was impeccable. This is one not to be missed.

I always visit the Panamonte for lunch and sit outside. Nice selection of food and wine. In the evening the Panamonte bar is a great stop before or after dinner.

Panamonte is located in the Panamonte hotel, not too far from the center of town. The venue is beautiful, especially the bar area by the fireside. The dining room was also quite nice, though it did look like it could use a little bit of...More

This is an old hotel with a great bar and restaurant. Eat in the bar by the fireplace. There is a wide variety of food available and for years this has been the best dining in Boquete.
