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

The food could hardly be any better. We had the lamb and bacon tacos and some corn fritters as appetizer, and then ate marvelous seabass with octopus and squid, as well as calamares stuffed with ink risotto. It's hard to tell which dish was better....More

If you like pretentious food served with an overwhelming dose of arrogance, look no further. The food is plated beautifully, and haphazardly tasty. Flavour combinations are not always well thought through- it's almost as if Goldilocks's lazy sibling is in the kitchen: "this dish is...More

Returned to Maito, where I celebrated my 70th birthday in February, for lunch today with dear friends, Francisco and Yarielkys. We enjoyed salads with our salmon and beef entrees and finished off the meal with tres leches con Baileys, Volcan chocolate, tea and cappuccino. Another...More

I've done the legwork: This was one of the best tasting menus I've had in the world. First, the restaurant isn't obvious to locate from the street, so fortunately our driver knew what to look for. The restaurant appears small, but inside has an open...More

I really loved this proposal from a panamanian chef honestly I was amazed it was very nice and tasty.

After a dinner at well rated Madrigal yesterday and Maito tonight, I came to the conclusion that so-called refined food is not a great idea in Panama. They just don't have the culture - and probably not either access to the right ingredients. Once again,...More

I am not 100% certain, but I believe Maito is closed on Sunday. Things may have changed, so call. I was there on a Monday.
