We went for an early dinner after it was recommended by a friend in Vancouver. Fun decor, great server and corvina ceviche with plantain cups to die for! My husband loved the roast suckling pig with tamales done two ways which was off the hook delicious! Will definitely go back before we leave for round two!

Great decor... Over priced average food. Avoid the ravioli in banana sauce, it is perhaps the most revolting thing I have ever eaten/ not eaten. Its hot and cramped but other than that worth a ceviche.

We don't pretend to know what authentic Panamanian food is, but our hotel recommended this place to us, and we really enjoyed our selections. 3 of us ordered the stuffed chicken with plantains, beans & rice. 1 person ordered the beef dish.

We were told this was a good place for traditional Panamanian food and it did not disappoint. I ordered Pollo Diablicos and it was delicious chicken stuffed with mashed plantain. Get the sauce on the side if you don't like it spicy. My husband had the pork dish which was also tasty. Lots of local flavor to this place.

We visited with family. Shared fried plantains with seafood, chicken broth with ñame and rice with vegetables and chicken. An excellent option, good value for money. Drink Panama beer.

My family and I went to this restaurant for dinner in Panama City. The atmosphere was nice and there was accessible wifi which was a bonus. My meal which came slightly different than what I ordered and the waiter very reluctantly (showed a very noticeable upset face) took it back and brought me the correct meal. It did, however, take...

Great authentic experience with excellent service. Although we only had a couple appetizers, the pork rind and Yucca was interesting and the calamari was delicious. I'll post a couple photos..... I would definitely return!

Generally poor and scruffy place. The food was poor and overpriced. Also watch the bill as they put a tick on the 20% service charge obviously without asking
