Great food and service! Samuel was a very attentive server. We came the day before for lunch and liked it so much that we came for dinner the next day.

The food was poor to average, at best. It was not that busy and we waited 50 minutes for our food. One dish was fried fish (pargo), and it smelled and tasted strong. It probably was not kept cold enough in the fish market, my...guess.More

Amazing food and staff. Ropa vieja was really good. This is a really nice restaurant showcasing the Panamanian food at a high level. Cozy place to have lunch and enjoy experiences ( dance and cooking classes can be booked here). Anyway. I’ll be back here...once I visit Panama City again.More

Amazing! Love the tamales and pollo guisa, Samuel was wonderful. Pineapple dessert was wonderful. Big portions, and lots of it can be easily shared family style.

Service was great, we had Samwell as our waiter and he made us iced coffees that weren’t on the menu. The pineapple ice cream rice pudding was so great!

There are few places you find with varied vegetarian options of national dishes. This isnone of them. They have a number of options and the one I had tasted great. The staff are all very friendly so don't be scared to asknfor suggestions!

Great location! We were recommended this by a local as a great place to eat Panamanian food and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious (so were the drinks!) and VERY generous portions. The staff were friendly and our waiter Samuel was great. Definitely...one to visit if you’re in the city.More
