I had an invitation to visit some friends in Boquete for afternoon coffee and conversation. This justified an opportunity to visit a new restaurant in Boquete. Roxane’s has been open since last December, but it is still new to me since I don’t get up to Boquete all that often.
Roxanes is located on the left side of the street as you enter Boquete and before you get to the main part of town. Here is what it looks like from the street.
I used to eat at this location back in 2003 and it has no resemblance to when I last knew it. The interior is pleasing. There is a river running next to the restaurant and its sound adds to the ambiance.
Here is a photo of the bar area.
Here is the grill.
This photo gives you an idea of the seating area. I think they can seat around 30 people.
I will include the menu at the end of the post. I apologize for the quality of the menu photos, but they are covered in plastic and I have had to adjust the contrast to make them readable.
Our table had an order of Chicken nuggets with bar-b-que sauce. $4.50
I ordered the 12 oz baby back ribs. $9.50
Another had the 12oz New York cut, with a baked potato. $10.95
Bread and mashed potatoes were ordered, but they were out.
So how was it? I thought the environment was very nice. The chicken nuggets tasted good. My ribs were very good, but not any better than TGIF in David.
I was told the New York cut was good. The baked potato was short on butter and had marginal sour cream and chives.
The prices are definitely not for the average Panamanian. However, from what I ate, the quality was good.
With gas prices as they are, I figure that the trip to Boquete and back cost me around $8+. The menu follows.
