We went with friends and sat outside at a table in the garden by fireplace. The food was sooooo good my favorite was the octopus. Everything we had was better than the next. Tuna poke, grilled tuna and much more. The service was excellent and I cannot wait to go Back!

Loved the mariscos and fried bananas. The ambiance was gorgeous. Our wait staff was all Italian and the manager was fabulous. Nice people.

Truly excellent. Perfect balance between local flavours and mediterraneen finess. An explosion of flavours. A must in Boquete.

Had the chance to visit the Colibrí Restaurant yesterday (11 August) after doing my research online and asking a few friends for their recommendations on “must” eat places in Boquete.

The place is very nice, clean, and presents a well lit atmosphere with a very cozy patio upon which we ate.

Our server was exceptionally nice, and offered us his suggestions for a few entrees and a main course.

We tried the Poke (with Guacamole), the Crunchy Octopus on a bed of mashed potatoes, and the Lamb Burger. All were accompanied by a nice Merlot and a Cabernet.

The Poke was well seasoned with a hint of sesame oil (just enough), on a bed of guacamole. The guacamole could of been better prepared with onion (tomatoes) (and hint of hint to cilantro) would of pushed this plate over the top, IMHO. The accompanying plátano chips did not appear to be very fresh, and some were soggy in appearance. Overall, a decent plate.

The crunchy octopus (pulp crujiente a la gallega) missed the mark completely. The octopus’s was toasted by very (very) chewy, and flavorless. The plate would be better served by serving it in “true” gallego style, and ensuring the proper cooking technique to get away from the “bubble gum” effect. This was a big disappointment.

Lastly, the Lamb burger....Very well prepared, seasoned and executed. This would be my go to plate if I ever visited Colibri again. The french fries which accompanied the dish however, would be better served with something like thick wedge truffle fries, instead of the thin and hard fries which were served with it. The touch of feta cheese was a welcome addition.

In essence, not a bad place to spend a lunch break on the way in or out of Boquete. Price point was moderate (we shared each dish, as we usually do to try out new places).

We would go back again, only after trying out other places in Boquete.

Thank you Patrick for your review, your comments are definitely helping us to improve.

Next time you are in Boquete, please stop by for a complimentary octopus "a la gallega", we found and solved the issue. Please also consider to mention to us directly any issue next time, we could have find a solution and avoid you a bubble gum experience!
