We went to the art cafe . We ordered the salad niçoise. Very well prepared but no anchovies but it was good. Service is nice and quick. Enjoy with a cold beer !

We stopped in for lunch after wandering around Boquete a bit. This cafe features French inspired dishes including savory and sweet crepes, croquet monsieur, and the like. Nothing fancy, but good solid food. Appears to be an expat frequented locale (everyone there when we were there was clearly American.)

Eat here! The Boquete Art Cafe is a quaint restaurant with an intimate and appealing charm. But the food! We took our two teenagers here after looking in on the restaurant for a couple of days and boy, were we regretful that we hadn't come earlier. The service was attentive and helpful. And the appetizers and meals were served beautifully... More

My friend and I had a fantastic dinner at Boquete Art Cafe. The mussels appetizer and escargots were just divine and the main course of shrimp "scampi" was just as fantastic. We will definitely come back there! The owners Daniel and Nicole are fantastic hosts, who take their time to come and see if everything is going well. Great people,... More

Very nice restaurant with friendly owners and staff. Great menu. Service and food can be inconsistent at times, unfortunately. Definitely worth a visit, especially when they're not extremely busy.

My husband and I dropped in for lunch and had some great smoothies to start. He had pineapple and I had papaya. They both were wonderful, but I truly loved the papaya one! Very refreshing. Then we both ordered the ham and cheese sandwich toasted with the lovely cheese on nice crusty bread. Very satisfying. Will probably go back and... More

Been there with my girlfriend. Ordered a Camembert in crust with cranberry, a crepe with salmon and a vegetarian lasagna. Not one was right. Maybe we where unlucky. In our opinion they lost their original chef and are operating with some improvised cook. Sorry guys, but the experience was bad. You gotta improve big time.
