George is a world class chef! We went on the recommendation of a local friend. Delicious! It was kind of a chilly night and we were lucky to get a spot near the fireplace. Fantastic dinner. Chill atmosphere. The Egyptian appetizers were amazing. The tuna was phenomenal. Could not recommend this place more. Really enjoyed being out of downtown and... More

We stopped for dinner mid week and were one of only 2 groups. George was very helpful and full of information regarding menu items. I had the coconut encrusted shrimp which was excellent. My husband had the coq au vin, also outstanding. We got to talking about his backyard garden and Orchard and how he uses mostly ingredients from his... More

George is a bit of a character, but welcoming and a good cook. The place is small but cozy and the food was excellent and reasonably priced,

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.

Lovely place. Ate there twice. The standard of food that comes out that small kitchen is far higher than expected. Great Tuna. A must visit if you are in Boquete.

George, an Egyptian who settled in Panama after a stay in Canada, oversees every detail from cooking to advising diners on what to order and ensuring they are pleased with their food and service. His eclectic background is reflected in the menu, which changes daily depending on what is fresh in the local market.The fire is cozy and so is... More

A nice place near our hotel. ( Palo Alto hotel) George himself explained the menu and the ingredients he is using. All the vegetables are coming from his own garden. The chicken of the night as well. A nice guy to talk with and a very good chef. The plates were very nice organized and the meat was perfect. I... More

We arrived in Boquete and checked in to our B&B down the street around 9pm. There was a note in our welcome packet that mentioned George's as a place to try if you check in late and are hungry. My husband fit that description to a t! I was tired from a long day of airports and airplanes, but my... More
