we were early diners on a Friday, and for an hour the only customers...the one waiter got us menus and did eventually return for our drink order. The Pisco Sours were excellent. When we got the waiters attention again we ordered the starters and the main courses. My partner had the ceviche and i had the calmari, both came promptly and were good. The main courses appeared shortly thereafter. We had the garlic jumbo prawns and the sea bass with prawns. The presentation was nicely done and both plates were hot. The sauce on the sea bass was excellent...and the prawns were also very good. That is when the waiter disappeared. He seemed preoccupied with his phone and spent the rest of the time out of the dining room. He never checked back to see how the meals were. The bar tender had also disappeared. We flagged down a cook who was watching TV behind the bar and got 2 more drinks, which he made. After we finished the main courses the waiter was still no where to be found so my partner cleared our plates and asked the same cook for desert. That was delivered by the waiter who suddenly appeared from the kitchen. It was a pie and was also very good. When we were done i had to flag down the waiter to get the check, and to my shock the 10% service was included. The entire bill was not inexpensive and to give the waiter 10% HE DID NOT DESERVE was distasteful. I'll will return for the food, but not for the service

We had the jumbo garlic prawns and limonea sea bass. Both were full of flavor. Great food and wonderful service.

We shared the Rice and Seafood and the portion was enough for two people. The food was delicious. The pisco sours were great and just like in Peru. The food was served in a timely manner and the service was excellent.

What I liked the most was a free pisco sour, followed by a Cusquena beer and then the authentic Peruvian food. I have spent plenty of time in Peru and this restaurant run by two brothers is very Peruvian!

My wife and I both had Langostino(large prawns) mine was prepared with Inca sauce and served on mashed potatoes absolutely outstanding. The dessert was passion fruit pie and the pisco sours were fantastic. This is an expensive restaurant for Boquete but if you want a truly outstanding meal this is it. Service was also very good.
