The place is situated in a nice setting. The terrace is spacious & a free valet parking! Close to calle 50. The salad was ok, good portions, but nothing special. Better try La Trona, which is much more tasty and better value for $$$!

Nice menu but prices are at the high end for what is really just an average steak house. Everything was cooked to order and very tasty but there is much better value to be had elsewhere in Panama and nearer to the city centre.

This place has a nice outdoor area and indoor dining room. The service was decent. Wine list has nice variety. We had high hopes because they had suckling big on the menu. It turned out to be an overcooked, small and expensive portion. I'm not even sure it was made the same day. Quality was way below what one can... More

I was invited to dinner at this restaurant on my recent stay in Panama City. To begin with, it was very hard to find the place, since it is located in a residential side street. Only valet parking available which was ok, but not very convenient. We ordered some appetizers (empanadas made with lamb), which were not tasty at all.... More

Mediocre and very expensive food; terrible service. Cute place, but it doesn't make up for a poor dining experience and awful service. From the eight of us, some of the dishes were acceptable and some mediocre. Waiters not only forget about you, but openly ignore you. Since they didn't bother to approach the table, when one of them was looking,... More

I'm a local. First couple of times, everything was great. Patagonian lamb shank to die for. Good service. Decent wine. Indoor-outdoor seating, check. Went again for lunch with family, still quite good risotto, check, beef, check, deserts, check. Then last week took a table for 8 with colleagues from work, and boom! Lamb shank skinny and overcooked, one pax ordered... More
