We decided to get a drink at the rooftop bar and we were not disappointed! Good service and a nice view over Panama city! The cocktails are nice and the price is okay. 7 dollar for a cocktail and 3,5 for a local bear (take balbao). If you want to eat here to, don't forget to make a reservation because... More

If you are headed to Panama City, look no further than Tantalo! I was traveling on a girls trip for a short visit and found this gem on TripAdvisor. Otto met me at the reception desk and gave me a choice of 2 rooms. I chose #11 with 3 balconies, a wet bar, and lots of space. We loved the... More

I wasn't at all surprised by our recent stay at Tantalo. This is NOT a hotel. This is a restaurant bar, rooftop bar, party place that happens to have rooms available for rent. My wife and I were lucky to have missed our flight out of Colombia, so our Saturday arrival became a Sunday arrival. HOW LUCKY WE WERE!!! The... More

We stayed here on our first night in Panama before going to Bocas del Toro. The location in Casca Viejo is phenomonal! The staff was extremely helpful and professional - arranging an early morning can and even sending us off with breakfast since we had to leave for the airport before breakfast service started. The room was very spacious with... More

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The food was wonderful and they set the bar in service. Everyone on staff from the front desk to the bartenders to the wait staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. If I ever get to visit Panama City again there is no doubt this is... More

I invited a group of 12 here for dinner and then drinks on the roof. Service was great, food was good, and after dinner, we went up to the roof for some drinks with a nice view of the city. We all left impressed.

We have been going to Tantalo since several years, both the restaurant and the roof top bar. A couple of weeks ago 8 of us wanted to go there for an after dinner drink, celebrating a very special birthday. To our surprise we were charged $10 / person before we could enter the elevator. When the guy saw our surprised... More

My daughter and I dropped in for lunch. It is located in one of my favorite parts of Panama City. The food was great. My daughter had the mac and cheese with shrimps. It was very good. The restaurant is very trendy. There is a rooftop upstairs, so it would be a nice place to visit during the evening. The... More

I went there for lunch and sat on the rooftop terrasse. The view was great and there was a nice wind so it wasn't too hot. The foday was okay, price was not too high. There is a hotel too, but I didn't stay there.
