Was staying in lodge next door, so had dinner there. Menu is very classy and upscale, but reasonably priced. The only place in town (and in most of Panama) wehre you can get a true craft brewed beer. They also serve fresh made bread. Great...More

My husband and I arrived late in Boquete. Our hosts at the Coffee Estate Inn (Jane and Barry) made us a reservation here at the Rock. When we walked in we knew it was exactly what we needed after a long day's drive to Boquete....More

Everytime I go to Boquete I stop at a couple of the same places. The Rock is one of those. It is a little expensive, but I go at least once and have a great steak.

We asked the cook to surprise us, he did. He came with some kind of mixed platter with delicious food, also the bill was very reasonable for an upscale restaurant like this.

It's quite fancy. They have a nice view to the river outside, though if one is dining, one wouldn't be able to appreciate it due to lack of lighting. Prices ranges from 15-30. Food is delicious. Service is also nice.
