This is a small hole-in-the-wall kind of place with great ambition (at least to judge by its menu). I don't think you'll find lobster thermidor anywhere else in Boquete. However, it can't quite live up to its ambitions yet. We ordered the lamb moussaka and coconut tempura shrimp. Both were OK, but not fine restaurant quality. We found the Egyptian... More

Had dinner at Georges recently, very rustic, very smoky, you will definetly come out smelling like you have been sitting around a campfire all night. The food was ok, had the fish, tasty.

Had supper their and the appetizer's were terrific. Had the lobster bisk and my wife had the Egyptian anti pasta both where awesome. For main course had the pork roast and it was okay. Maybe hard to make pork roast exciting. The owner was very engaging about his garden were the produce comes from and very friendly. Would go back... More

What to expect from a restaurant with a fireplace, plastic chairs and with only a menu written on a board? Fantastic food and an excellent atmosphere! The host / chef makes excellent food and is enthousiastic. The tuna was great and the bananabread pudding is an excellent dessert!

The Fireside Inn Grill was one of the most globally vast menus I've seen anywhere, let alone in a lonely mountain town. We had Egyptian, Italian, Indian and Greek (?). Everything was fresh and made on-sight and was a refreshing difference after many pizzas and western foods so popular with tourists and retirees in the area. The waitstaff was very... More

I love this place. The food is amazing and George is a great guy. We always start with a bowl of lobster Bisque and then generally order steaks or seafood. From time to time he offers quail and or duck. George grows all of his herbs and vegetables in a beautiful garden nestled behind the inn. Pizza's are wood burned... More

George is a world class chef! We went on the recommendation of a local friend. Delicious! It was kind of a chilly night and we were lucky to get a spot near the fireplace. Fantastic dinner. Chill atmosphere. The Egyptian appetizers were amazing. The tuna was phenomenal. Could not recommend this place more. Really enjoyed being out of downtown and... More

We stopped for dinner mid week and were one of only 2 groups. George was very helpful and full of information regarding menu items. I had the coconut encrusted shrimp which was excellent. My husband had the coq au vin, also outstanding. We got to talking about his backyard garden and Orchard and how he uses mostly ingredients from his... More

George is a bit of a character, but welcoming and a good cook. The place is small but cozy and the food was excellent and reasonably priced,

Thank George R
