This place has a lot of great food. This was our second visit to Maito (our first was several years ago). It did not disappoint. We had several items off the menu - an octopus appetizer; fish of the day, Grouper, which was accompanied by large lentils; and filet mignon. The filet was a little more done than desired since...

My favorite restaurant in Panama. Excellent menu choice. An excellent use of panamanian native ingredients and plates. Great Wine Selection and Beverage. The quality of the food is always constant. Excellent service. I go very often with my family and friends. The place is just nice and beautiful.

This place was recommended by a friend from Panama ! Hidden away from street view. The food was unbelievably awesome. Had to try a little of everyone else's food too ! The carpaccio and the octopus starters were so soooooo good. The fish was perfect and my squid ink rice and calamari was absolutely amazing !!!! The desserts were fantastic.... More

Service, parking, ceviche, quality of the ingredients. Must try the Corvina with seafood on top, its a great value and outstanding. Cava or Proseccco by the glass was reasonably priced.

We were initially assigned a table in an entirely unattractive side room, upon our request then given a table in the main dining room ,however next to the kitchen... More

I got to tell you, not sure if it was the hype or what but we were expecting very high quality food, service, etc. Especially as it is ranked in Latin America but maybe it was an off night. As foodies, this was not up there. The service was average for Panama. The food was a bit better than average... More
