Best place/value for money I have found in Panama. On all my trips here I haven't found a place that feels this friendly. Really great

The best restaurant we found in Panama, more important, best service. To bad I didn't find it earlier, would be like a stalker. For Gods sake, don't miss this if you're here.

What a fantastic meal!! The corvina with almonds was amazing and the beef was delicious! We started with the Colombian empanadas and the ceviche. Both were amazing. The service was great and the food came out quickly. I highly recommend the restaurant.
