Reservation was for 14 people in order to celebrate a birthday. Although the setting was in place at the time of our arrival, the service staff was not around to at least place the beverage order. When they finally showed up, they took the orders of each guest in disorder, skipping every other member of the group, although instructions were... More

I stopped in to get out of the rain for a quick bite. I enjoyed their Limeade & ceviche! The Prices seemed a bit high, but we were in the Old City too. The service was great. I can't complain......

One of the easier restaurants to find in the Casco Viejo area of Panama City. Many of our group spent several hours having lunch and drinking beer. The food is what you may expect in a bar setting. Crowded and noisy, but lively, even mid day. Food and beverages are not inexpensive in Panama, especially in a tourist area.

Ate here because it was a holiday and it was literally the only place that seemed to be open in Casco Antiguo. Bottom line, the food here just isn't very good. Very bland, uninspired takes on Panamanian cuisine, and way, way, way overpriced. Would not recommend at all.

Really interesting decor, lots of devil masks and I heard the show is fun to watch, but it was not show time when we arrived. We each got a meal, two fish meals and the chicken with rice. The food was good but I felt it was expensive, especially since it was our first day in Panama.

This place was great for lunch. I went in starving and left full. I really enjoyed the local food and the flavors were amazing. I recommend this place. It is kind of pricey, but for the area that is the norm.

My husband and I went to this restaurant for an early dinner, during a recent trip to Panama. We ordered typical Panamanian food, which was good. The service was acceptable. This restaurant has a folkloric show at night, which is supposed to be very good. Unfortunately, we couldn't go during the times when they have the shows. It was not... More

A really good restaurant in a lovely setting... The selection of foods, which you can mix and match is great. It is clean, cheerful and relaxing. Worth finding and visiting.
