We met with local friends for lunch. Ordered lamb tacos, short rib dumplings and carimañolas to start-all delicious. Followed with black-ink rice (squid) with scallops and fish in curry-coconut sauce. All beautiful and tasty. This was our first truly-Panamanian meal. Don't miss it!

If you want to go in a typical Latin American restaurant go to maito the food is delicious specially the fish and it normally always locally fished. Nice and efficient waiters. I highly recommend the place
