The staff service is slow but this is not a privilege of this restaurant. It happened almost in every restaurant in Panama city. We asked for a suggestion about the wine and noticed that the waiter was not aware of the wine characteristics so he could not help us. We also ordered angus burgers. It came with old breads (maybe... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. Our waiter was great, really friendly and helpful. The wine and food were very good. We had ceviche to start and it was fantastic. I ordered risotto, and when I didn't like it, they let me order something else without charging us. They wanted to make sure we enjoyed our experience, which was really nice.... More

We enjoyed this restaurant very much, the food was great and the service was excellent. It's right next door to the hotel where we stayed and has outdoor seating on the edge of Plaza Herrera in the Casco Viejo neighborhood of Panama City. Very pleasant evening!

We came here to celebrate my dad's 65th birthday. He had already eaten here so he said it was good. We got some fried yucca (manioc, cassava) as compliments of the chef. We had some appetizers which were good, but to me nothing special (arepitas, empanadas and mixed causa). Everything we wanted was on the menu, but the server had... More

This is not my first visit to this restaurant. Meats and seafood were really good. Service was good, parking so so. It's in the Casco Viejo, the old part of Panama, lots of colonial hotels, different types of restaurants, old constructions, police everywhere, this time we had entertaiment, it's expensive, drinks and terrible, food is good.

We had dinner with quite a large group but all was managed quite well. The portions were not that big, better to make sure that you order side dishes. Our waitor was an enthousiastic guy which is always good! Its a nice restaurant but no so special for me.

Had dinner there the evening I arrived at the hotel next door. Nice steak, well cooked (though served not quite hot enough for my taste) and a very good glass of Malbec. A tad expensive but the food was well cooked and presented, and the service nice and friendly. You can also sit outside in the square, which seems pleasant.

This restaurant has plenty of seating indoors but for me the best place was enjoying the magnificence of the Hispanic architecture outside in the old square. The menu is playful with things like "sashimi pizza" and "hotdog Madura" starters. Of course they are nothing to do with pizzas and hotdogs. For a start, the "hotdog" is a ripe cooked plantain...

We were pleasantly surprised at this lovely little restaurant. Having not read any reviews but walked past it a couple of times, we tried it out. Attentive staff and great food. If meat is your thing, then this is the place. Really good fillet and strip steaks and thoughtful side orders. Really a treat!

We stopped here for only a brief lunch but sat outside on the picturesque square. We had two dishes which were both great - the salmon tartar was exceptional and topped any that we had throughout some great restaurants in Panama and Colombia, based on the food we had I would highly recommend this nicely-situated dining establishment.
