I had been in Boquete a couple of times before but I hadn´t been able to visit this place. The Rock is definitely a place you cannot miss. Good food and service. The place is really nice. We will come back for sure.

Went for the all you can eat ribs. They were quite good and generous. It is hard to eat too many ribs as they are some good and rich.

Thursday evening is all you can eat ribs at The Rock. The meat is tender and the sauce is ok. Not the best I've ever had and not the worse either. Don't think they were cooked on a grill probably cooked in a crock pot...More
