Relatively expensive and not exactly amazing. Service is good and friendly, but the food is distinctly average. Nothing wrong but nothing that stands out either

The restaurant decoration has nothing to do with the famous "Salsipuedes" street. The space between tables is excellent. The service was also good. The food however, is expensive for what you get. there was no taste on several dishes. For the price and location much more was expected. We will not go back to this restaurant or recommend it.

Had fixed menu for Christmas but were flexible with me since I don't eat meat. They replace the meat with a delicious fish...

Late night stopped in for starters. Had the ceviche with coconut based sauce. It really didn't taste that good just ok. The cod cakes were definitely very very good. Balboa beer helped. Great atmosphere Staff was very helpful, polite and attentive

Local dishes with a modern twist. Comfort food but in small plates. Impeccable presentation. Fresh deliveries " no it was not orange season, too sour". Run there for lunch or dinner!

Food was okay, but not terrific. Took a long time to get drinks on a Sunday. Prices seem a little higher overall.

American type bar decor with Panamanian pics. Wine nice and fast and that helped us ignore the slow Service - took 40 minutes to get food served Burger patties tough and hard - not ground beef or tasty. Chips Ok Wine Ok BLT Okedoble food but not great so only go if staying in the hotel and short of time.... More

The staff here are warm and friendly. The choices on the buffet had something for everyone. One of our party was a little disappointed with the lack of seafood. The toaster had non-functioning slots. The atmosphere is sophisticated casual.

Special treat for out last evening in Panama City. It happened to be very uncrowded, which for us was a another treat. Lots of attention from waiter who explained the menu and helped us choose.

Savor the essence of authentic Panama at Salsipuedes Restaurant, the marvelous new restaurant located within Bristol Panama hotel. Under the direction of renowned Executive Chef Cuquita Arias de Calvo, Salsipuedes offers a rich showcase of gourmet Panamanian cuisine.The restaurant’s name honors Panama City’s legendary - and sometimes notorious -Salsipuedes Street, which has been a city landmark since 1671. Today, up and down the street, you can find Chinese and Panamanian merchants offering handmade crafts, Panamanian clothing, montunos, hats, books, magazines, school supplies, articles, Jewelry, vegetables, fruits, dishes, pots, pans, medicinal plants, teapots, among other items.In this regard, Salsipuedes Street and Salsipuedes Panama City Restaurant share several traits. Each celebrates the spirit of the Panamanian culture and is as cheerful and spicy as the people themselves.
