This restaurant has a nice, comfortable location right next to the river. Their menu has an excellent variety, the drinks are good, and the staff friendly and well-trained. The sesame encrusted salmon is my personal favorite, but there are lots of choices.

Every time we visit Boquete we have dinner at Rock. Can’t be missed it’s the best restaurant of the area.

The Rock is a beautiful open restaurant with fine service and excellent pork ribs (all you can eat on Thursday nights). Also nice bar service and very good wine list, mostly Argentinian and Chilean wines.
