Stopped by on the last Sunday of February for lunch. Service was slow, but the staff was helpful and nice. The food was good and reasonably priced. The owner stopped by our table and explained the reason for the delay of our order. We weren't in a big rush so it wasn't a problem.

Their menu is varied and Rose the owner is friendly and accommodating. Speaking of accommodations they have clean rental units there too.

We love Paraiso, a real sense of community can be found here. Great place not only for a meal or drinks, but to meet up with friends, old or new. Love Rose, Pete and don't forget Gabby, great food, music and good times.

We love spending time at Paraiso's. Rose, the owner is fantastic. We've stayed at the cabins, had a great time. Food is always very good with consistently good service. Great pancakes for breakfast.

This is a great clean restaurant on the way to El Valle. Food is excellent and the owners Pete and Rosa are always there to give you the best experience possible. We also stayed at one of their cabanas. The location minutes from the beach and el Valle made it a great choice for us. Cooler and quieter than the... More

Great place for salsa on Friday nights. Fun people, good location on the way to El Valle. Unfortunately, food's just so-so. The restaurants biggest plus is that it constantly strives to provide a base for the community to come together.

First, this restaurant is not in Panama City. It's at least two hours away. Service was good. Food was ok at best. No specific problems but we were not impressed. No air conditioned area. Good close-in parking.

We took some friends from Canada to see Rose and try the burgers. We highly recommend Paraiso for the best burgers - the beef is excellent!

We have visited Panama many times over the last 2 years and always try to make a stop at the Paraiso Restaurant & Bar and say hi to Rose and the staff and enjoy a meal & a drink or two. We like to try something different but if you like hamburguesas, then you have to try Paraiso’s…..this homemade burger... More
