I understand Ego y Narciso is very popular for dinner - with tables outside on Plaza Bolivar. But I ventured in on a very hot day - and took advantage of the air conditioning to eat lunch inside the restaurant. The chef is from Peru and some items do have a Peruvian flair to them. I opted for the Corvina Plancha - and it was a very good choice: a light, white fish grilled with an interesting sauce. After the fish and a couple of beers I was satisfied and on my way.

I was there last night and really enjoyed it. The food was good, even though the streak tartar has a bit to much mayo for taste. But sitting outside was very nice.

Stopped for lunch and out of half the Starter menu as we wanted a light lunch. Presents bill in an American Express folder, but only takes MC and Visa. Didn't feel wanted at all. Place had one other table full at lunch time. I liked our lunches, but they were expensive at the price. You can do much better in this area and at a lower price point.

Ego (no local uses the full name) sits quietly on a corner of Bolivar Square in Panama's historic quarter, Casco Viejo - a handful of outside tables, and a few tables inside ringing an L-shaped bar. Nothing in its modest appearance can prepare the first-time visitor for just how good this place is. It looks like a bar that serves food, when in fact it's the other way around, offering a menu that is international in its intention, and Peruvian at its heart. Much of the food is available as tapas, perfect accompaniments to the drinks for which Ego is well known, especially a fantastic mojito.

Casco Viejo is the southeastern corner of the city, alongside the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. On a breezy evening, it's an ideal place to watch ships coming and going and people strolling by. Don't miss the ceviche, the tuna tartare with a thick layer of avocado and any number of offerings on the thick corn tortillas one finds only in Panama.
