IF you go to Panamá City, this restaurant is a very good choice to try Panama dishes on a "modern" style served with refinement and style. The meat is excellent of course! Quite expensive though.

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

Interesting tasting menu for only about $70.00 per person. Reasonable wine prices. Very friendly service. No English is spoken and no English menus which detracted from the total experience. Wish I had understood more about the dishes!

The food at Maito is incredible! Maito is tucked away on a quiet residential street. The restaurant is charming and has stunning outdoor gardens. The menu is only in Spanish, which made ordering a little more exciting for people with subpar Spanish. We ate several...More

You can dress casually. No bathing attire but probably anything beyond that is fine.
