If your planning to visit Panama or the Casco viejo in Panama this is a great spot ... it's located walking distance to several restaurants and bars ... also walking thru Casco you'll see a lot of historic sites from this beautiful place named world heritage

The atmosphere there is very nice. There were a show going on during dinner. The food is great and very unique. Their menu is very special. There is also a rooftop bar. It was nice to have a drink after the dinner.

We had dinner there on a Saturday night. They have a good selection of Tapas items. We ordered several and all were above average. Drinks were decent and made properly. It id definitely not a spot for those on a budget. Plan to spend a decent amount of cash if you;re looking to hang out for awhile. The roof top...

This place is always nice, the decoration is really pretty artistic, It reminds me some places in London which I enjoy and I find something different in Panama. Food is nice, you don't need to wait too much for it, prices are good and if you get like the promo's hour can even even cheap.

Fernando at the lobby bar and Ronald at the front reception are plain amazing. Rooftop bar is beautiful, again, great wait staff. The rooms are nice and...

Restaurant * Food - Originally fantastic. Some of the best we have had in Panama. The flavor/quality of food has changed since our first few visits. We hope the original quality and flavor return. * Service - Average. Servers speak spanish and english. On a few occasions we had to ask for simple things (water, utensils, etc.). * Atmosphere -...

The hotel is clean and nice all around. The roof top does have private event bookings so it is unfortunate for the patrons during those times. When I was staying there they had an event happening between 7-10pm so I was able to have a drink before and enjoy the party afterwards. Food is decent and well priced. If you...
