This restaurant has a peculiar decor and excellent service. You might want to order the "hamaca de camarones" which is delicious. They have an orquestra in the terrace that plays live music every evening. I will strongly recommend this place.

La Vitrola is a concept that was created first in Cartagena-Colombia 17 years ago, 1 year ago Lucio Garcia owner of La Vitrola decided to bring his most valuable jewel from Cartagena to Panama giving to the concept a more young and modern image in such a modern city as Panama City.La Vitrola offers a wonderful caribbean-Fusion menu that will take your breath away while you listen to a cuban live band, and is not just our food or and music, our staff and our local are just something you need to experience if you live or travel Panama City.
