We were very excited to try this place, as it received great write-ups as well as recommendations from the locals. The food was good, albeit a bit rich and buttery, and the restaurant was warm and cozy for a romantic evening. Everything started out great, but somewhere between the cocktails and the soup, some local Boquete folks came in, and... More

The Panamonte is a place that everyone who goes to Boquete must visit. It is one of the most well known and respected places in Boquete. It has an amazing reputation and the food is excellent. I highly recommend having at least one meal there. For dinner, the bar area is my favorite place to dine. It is a little... More

The food was good (not great) at this joint but the ambiance is wonderful. SIT IN THE ROOM WITH THE BAR - it was way more lively and fun than the main dining room.

The wife and I like to go to Panamonte for a monthly steak... they actually have a very tender and delicious filet, and for a decent price. The hearts of palm ceviche is the perfect starter food, combined with a glass of wine or beer, right by one of the two cozy fireplaces they have in the back area. I... More

The Panamonte was recommended to us by an ex-pat who has lived in Boquete for 7 yrs. If you walk right through the formal dining room, through the lovely gardens you will find a charming bar. Where you can get the same great food you would in the dining room. The bar area has two beautiful wood fireplaces. Perfect to... More

Everything ordered was fantastic from the salad appetizer, to the entree and even dessert. Breakfast the next day was also impressive.

What a beautiful place. I would have liked to have stayed here but we already had rooms elsewhere. We shared a bottle of very good wine and enjoyed excellent appetizers in the best lounge/bar I've been in. Fireplaces going at both ends of the lounge, a nip in the air, and soft music playing quietly in the background. What a... More

I truly expected more from this grande dame of Boquete. She is starting to show her age. Trout almondine is given a more rustic treatment, but it was delicious and exemplary. The pork belly with patacones starter was less impressive. It looked like a very confused person took chinese roast pork and slapped it on run-of-the-mill fried plantains. The bottle... More

Great surroundings and was a great place to visit many years ago but they have moved their prices too high and now only visit occasionally.
