Must recommend to orden them with patacones (fried plantain)... delicious, The whole fried snapper was very fresh, mid size... More

Great local place. Awesome ceviche. Get the mixed ceviche with fish and shrimp. Panama beer is cold. Definitely a local place. Worth the drive to Veracruz.

Our guide (Alex) from Panama City took us here. We treated him and ourselves to a great seafood lunch on Playa Venado, Veracruz, Panama. The food was great. Two of us at the Corvina with shrimp and fried plantains. My son had large shrimp and my wife had seafood soup. It was all very good. We stepped right off the... More

Spicy mixed ceviche was wonderful. Clams were fresh and delicious. We ordered 3 different fish meals and all were outstanding.

The food at the restaurant is good, and seemingly fresh fish! However, some of the servers are not the best when it comes to customer service. I've been to the restaurant more than once, because the food is tasty. However, on the last trip, the male server we had, seated other customers AFTER we were seated, and took their orders... More

We live near Veracruz, so go to Karimar pretty often for both lunch and dinner. It is our favorite of the two beach restaurants on Veracruz Beach that we visit. The fish is excellent, the portions are sometimes too big, and they usually offer fried yuca, rice, french fries or patacones along with a tiny salad or coleslaw as side... More

This is a large open-air restaurant right on a Pacific beach where we enjoyed watching the sun set while we toasted a perfect meal. The atomosphere was authentic Panama... More
