I was in Boquete last week and my friend suggested we have lunch at Mi Jardin es Tu Jardin (My Garden is Your Garden) in Boquete. This place has been known for some time for its beautiful gardens. Unfortunately the couple times I went to visit I missed connections and they weren’t open. Word is, there was a death in the family, and now under new management not only are the gardens being revitalized, but there is also a charming restaurant on the property.
The pretty restaurant has seating above and also below on garden level
This is the view from the restaurant
Just below the restaurant you find yourself entering the beautiful garden area
a pretty pond
Spanish moss is not a common sight in Panama but this pine tree was full of it
A red poinsettia was in bloom
I don’t know what the orange trees are in the background but they are sure pretty
Bougainvillea in full bloom
The open spaces have nice views of the mountains
There was a swimming pool under the building full of koi!
The lookout platform was closed, but word is the views from up there are really nice
I like the painted statues that are found in various places in the gardens
I didn’t realize these plants made such nice flowers
A little girl runs to the painted cow so her family can take her picture
We enjoy one last view of the mountains as we return to the parking lot
This place has been enjoyed by tourists, expats, and Panamanians alike for a long time. It’s a nice place to relax, enjoy the natural beauty, and spend time with friends and family. Now there is also a restaurant with attentive and English speaking staff, so it’s a good option for a nice lunch or dinner.

I wish we could review the quality of food at this place without consequences.
I had a salad and it was very good. I haven’t heard anyone comment on the food so I can’t say more than that. There were three other tables full (local residents) when we were there though.
Great pics Kris. We ate here last week for dinner and it was good. Although to have a menu with fantastic pictures of deserts on it and be told they had no desert’s that evening was a bit strange. The Pad Thai stood out among the 4 entrees ordered.
Our waiter told us there were a few things they didn’t have also, and I think it might have included dessert but since I wasn’t planning on dessert I didn’t pay close attention. It has to be hard to keep up a varied menu like theirs, especially in a small restaurant. Glad you had a good experience there.
Really lovely gardens!
Yes indeed 🙂
