Firstly, the restaurant itself is well decorated and has an upmarket feel to it. The location is fantastic. The service level that we received from the staff is what you would expect in the top European restaurants. Special thanks to Lala our waitress. I had...the Ceviche for a starter, Tenderloin for main and homemade ice cream (tasted like chai flavour). All 3 of my dishes were perfectly done and tasty. Overall a most enjoyable evening and you can see that the staff go out of their way to make your evening memorable. This restaurant does Boquete proud and I will support it in the future.More

Very good option for dinner, but good to double check. The interior is done really nice with a sitting by a big rock and another area with fireplace.

Boulder 54 is one of the best restaurants in Boquete. My husband, my best friend and I had the most delicious steaks we have EVER had in Panamá! The service was excellent and Chef Chris came out to speak with us. We have lived in...Panamá for 14 years and this dining was incredible. We certainly will be back as often as we can!More

Very nice place. Actually o e of the most beautiful restaurants in Boquete. The set up is very nice, the service very good but the food was not so great. My wife and son said theirs were good but mine could have been a little...better. I ordered the chicken breast. The presentation was very good but the meat was boiled and had no taste. My wife ordered a ceviche and a quinoa dish and my son the tenderloin. Both said theirs were good.More

We dined at Boulder 54 last night (not our first timel there) and had a wonderful meal. Our server, Roosevelt, was attentive and friendly and the food was outstanding. We had a table by the fireplace and the setting was perfect. When we are in...Boquete, a visit to Boulder 54 is always high on our list.More

I loved the decor and atmosphere. Unfortunately I didn’t love the food. I had the double pork chop. It came out coated in curry, nothing in the dishes description mentioned curry, I am not a fan of this flavor. Aside from the curry it was...dry and rather tough. It came out about ten minutes after we ordered so likely it was pre cooked as it was also not hot. My wife had a chicken dish also just warm and underwhelming. It a shame but perhaps just an off night. Probably will not be back.More

From the moment you walk in the door the wait staff treat you like royalty. The ambiance, with the Christmas decorations and roaring fireplace were perfect. Can't say enough good about the food, Chris Young is a remarkable chef. The presentation, flavors and textures were...perfect. Chris topped off our meal with a little something special, a chocolate liquor...yummy! We will definitely make this one of our favorite places for dinner.More

The entire staff, from Chef Chris, to our Maitre d', Roosevelt, the entire staff of Boulder 54 always goes out of their way to ensure a first-class dining experience for every guest. The food is just as good as the staff, and the ambiance is...second to none. If you are reading this, do yourself a favor and make your reservation now. Go!...

I think they will be closed Christmas Eve but they will be open Christmas Day and will have a buffet dinner. I know because we have reservations for that.
