Wow. Who knew the best meal in Boquete would be served in a plastic chair next to a fire? George's was delicious. We had a bottle of champagne, the Egyptian antipasto appetizer, and my pasta was delicious. Highly recommend

Went to George's for dinner. Quirky little restaurant with good food. We both ordered fish, which was excellent. George also told us all the vegetables and herbs were picked right from his garden. Definitely worth a visit.

Not 100% sure seems like it was open every night, but it is definitely worth checking out, not your norm.
