In the last two day’s I have received multiple emails asking if I had eaten at Restaurnate Renegado. I hadn’t, but since so many people knew about it and I didn’t, guess what? I went today around 4:30 PM.
This was merely a scouting expedition, but I am glad I went. I spent a little over an hour talking to the owners ( David and Berta). The restaurant is a little bit of Spain crossed with a little bit of Peru. This is because David is from Spain and Berta is from Peru.
The restaurant has been open a little over a month. How come I didn’t know about it before now? As you can see from the following photos, it is an attractive little restaurant. There are about 6 – 8 tables. There are extra tables outside which can accommodate the smoking clients.
The menu has a little of everything. I had to try something, even though it wasn’t time to eat a real meal. I had a scrumptious pound cake that had a hint of Anise and was covered with cream and chocolate. It was very great.
I have picked out several items on the menu that follows for a follow up visit.
If you go there, before I return, tell David and Berta, that you heard about their restaurant from Chiriquí Chatter. The hours are 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM, Tuesday through Sunday.
To get there, drive on the InterAmerican Highway, toward Costa Rica. The restaurant is going to be on your left after you pass KFC. It is on the opposite side of the road from ServiCentro. Look for the sign in the first photo.
UPDATE: The telephone numbers for Renegado have changed. The Direct number is 730-5804 and a cell number is 6663-1975
