Excellent for a great beer and tasty pub food. You can taste the beer options before you order your own beers. We were looking for something different to do and found this great spot. Loved the beer options...all original brews. Perfect for some beers and fun food. Relaxed ambient. Had the nachos and fish tacos. Place is great for hangout... More

A perfect patio just across the bay and just steps from downtown. Stopped here quite a few times on our adventures. Always a nice cold beer awaits you with a smile.

They give you 6 samples per a table to try their beers so you can choose what you like. The pizzas's selection is good too; they offer a lot of interesting combinations.

Looking for a place to have a great beer and a good meal? This is the place! If you go there for the first time you get a so called beer-boat. small glasses with all the beer they have. Very good service and good quality

Landed at PTY an hour or so ago, dumped by bags at the hotel, and started walking. Panama City is great for a stroll. Unassuming store front to La Rama Dorada gives way to a darkish punish space populated on this visit by ex-pat Gringos. Excellent porter. Had hoped to try the Black IPA but was out of stock. Super...

We've only had beer here so can't say anything about the food. It's a fun place with about six different kids of beer. All are pretty good. Their happy hour is an excellent deal. Half off beers! Even on the weekend.

The food is Really good and not to expensive in comparison to the other Restaurants In casco viejo. But have an eye on the change. We were there two times and it felt like if they tried to cheat us with giving a five Dollar note instead of a ten back and stuff - sorry to say, so better watch... More

I went recently to la Rana Dorada, but to the factory that is located in Av. Ricardo J Alfaro, near a place called Plaza Edison. There is an excellent tour. They show you how they make the beer and there is a beer tasting as their famous new rum Mandinga too. I recommend it if you want to get involved... More

This place has really good micro brew beer and excellent NY style pizza. Heard the burgers were also good but never had one.
