“Tasty and cheap”

Restaurante El Sabroson #1
Cuisines: Central American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 March 2018

We came to this restaurant at the recommendation of one of our tour guides. We asked where the locals in town eat and he suggested this place. It is cafeteria style food and it was full of locals. To say it's casual dining is the understatement of the century but the food was very good. If you like to eat where the locals eat while you travel, definitely check this place out for lunch while you're in Boquete. There are two restaurants with similar names - we ate at the one almost directly across the street from the town square.

Brilliant food, good portions and very cheap. Don't be put off by the canteen style, it's full of locals and the food is tasty, some of the best we have had in Panama. Panamanian food at it's best!

This is definitely not the fanciest place to eat but this canteen style restaurant offers very well priced and tasty local food. The staff are friendly and some of them speak a bit of English and are happy to help you when ordering if you need! If you want something good and local this should be a definite stop when you’re in Boquete!

It's not fancy but if you're looking for a true local dining experience - this is the place!
The food is excellent. Rice and chicken are menu favorites. Be sure to try the plantains. It's clean. You sit inside at picnic tables. Not much English spoken but all you have to do is point at your selection - they're use to dealing with tourists. We ate lunch there almost every day and never got tired of it. Average $$$ for 2 = $10.00.

This popular locals cafeteria serves up delish food at budget prices. Entrees change daily, so there's plenty of options to please the palate.
