There were 8 of us having dinner. I had fresh lobster tails (4.) They were cooked perfectly and served in a garlic butter sauce. DELICIOUS!

We enjoyed our meal at the Fish House although our service was slow. Server did not speak English but we received correct orders. Price is reasonable. The dining area is rustic and small.

Probably the best fish and chips in the world! This is my favorite Boquete restaurant for fish on Friday. Good prices. This restaurant was founded by Craig Jacobs, and has been a great success ever since.

We have been going here for several years. The food is excellent, the service is personable, and the setting is cozy. They serve the best fish and chips on the planet. Pricing here is very affordable and the menu is full of options.

We had a nice lunch here. As per other reviews we asked the waitress which fish was the freshest and she recommended the red snapper (Pargo) so we had that beer battered with coleslaw and home cut fries. Excellent! and margaritas were delicious too.

Fish House was our first stop on arriving in Boquete on a pouring rainy evening. It is small, but the place was packed, and the vibe good. We enjoyed a seafood meal with sides at a reasonable price.

Our group of three had a very nice dinner at Fish House last night. As others have noted, the service can be slow but extremely nice and helpful. Those few extra minutes we spent relaxing over a respectable $20 bottle of red wine. The fish...More
