"All you can eat ribs" is on Thursdays. Ribs have red sauce which is delicious. Meat sucks right off bones. Comes with hydroponic lettuce salad (all you can eat) and bread. Price about $18/per person. Food great, rating based on value for $$$$. For light eaters this is not for you as sharing and no take out allowed. As 2... More

Good Day and thank you for your comments: We would like to clarify that an “all you can eat special” in any part of the world means all you can eat all you can while you are sitting in the restaurant, not for customers to take all they can eat home. Light eaters should be aware that entering an “all... More

We had the sea bass here for dinner and it was delicious. The staff is friendly and helpful (I have to have gluten free and they were happy to advise me on what was "safe") the live music was great, not too loud, and the ambiance delightful.

My wife and I loved eating here! French onion soup (SOO GOOD). We also got the tenderloin (cooked perfectly) and the salmon with risotto (again, cooked perfectly). Enjoying all of this with a bottle of good malbec, great service, and beautiful scenery was well worth the money! Having lived in Panama for almost a year, this was the classiest and... More

Stayed at the adjacent Riverside Inn. Had lunch and dinner here as well as the Continental Breakfast served each morning to guests of The Riverside Inn. Food was great and only exceeded by the views of the nearby mountains and forest. Sounds of the river rushing in back of the grounds only added to the ambiance. The service was always... More

We dined at The Rock a few times while in Boquete. The presentation and quality are great. The appetizers, soups and salads we had were really good. Monday night we returned for jazz noght, and that is worth it just for the live music. The drinks were ok, but not the quality you'd expect from a higher end restaurant. I'd... More

Every bite was a delightful pleasure starting from bouillabaisse, through shrimps and seabass ending with ribbs. I wish there were words to describe in full, but it's something you have to experience. We're staying at Boquete 3 days, went there on the first day and definitely will go there on 3rd. Let it be the best proof of quality as... More
