After being at at resort in town with horrible food, Tantalo was a breath of fresh air. Several of is sampled different dishes, and the flavors were out of this world. When we headed upstairs to the bat with a great views of downtown, we felt like we were in a real life issue of Bon Appetite! If you are... More

We chose this place for lunch and cocktails after seeing it on Anthony Bourdain's show. While the drinks and ambience are great, I would skip on the food here!

Restaurant has two features. You can dine on the lower level, which is the main floor, or upstairs, roof top. This upper level transforms into a night spot with dj at night. Great views of street below from roof top. On specific nights, there is entertainment on the lower level.

Stopped by for drinks. I had the Payback, most excellent tequila cocktail with mango and light jalapeño. Gf had mojito and enjoyed. The food selection was very mixed. Being our first full day in Panama we decided to go somewhere more traditional. Great attentive service from staff. Facilities very good.

Tantalo serves healthy good tasty lunches lunches with free Sodas. The serves is perfect and very friendly. Price is OK and the portions are suitable to share. So you can even save money.

We went twice - once for good and once for drinks - both a little underwhelming. We might have been on 'off nights' as I heard they have good parties but there wasn't much atmosphere and the food was expensive and not that amazing. The staff were super friendly though.
