I loath this place. Work has taken me there numerous times and I despise going there. Prices are a tad too high for the average food they have. Waitresses are rude, dumb, oblivious to their surroundings, and slow. It's a shame, 'cause I dig the new makeover they got. Getting the bill takes forever. Stand up and go to the... More

Got a take out on 5 April 2014. I had asked the hotel where I could get some good Panamanian food close by. They directed me here. I must say the place is setup nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Their prices were great to me. I got the Pollo a La Criolla which was 8.50 but with... More

The food was so good we came 3x. The fried rice with shrimp - awesome. Monte Cristo sandwich - awesome. Breaded shrimp - really good. Good quick service! The directions on google maps don't quite send you in the right direction, but it's only a few blocks away.

The food is very local, delicious Panamanian food. The waitress was so friendly and accommodating with my special requests (Lent). I was so delighted with how delicious the food is and a nice generous serving. I enjoyed it so much I will be going to eat dinner there again before I leave Panama City. The dinner prices are very reasonable... More

Panamanian and international cuisine. You can literally close your eyes, point and order off of this menu and you won't be disappointment, food is always good here with fantastic service. Great bang for you buck. I never miss a chance to eat here.

This restaurant is an open plan, modern design on a sort of cafe type of style. There is a bar to sit and eat at or at tables. It is clean and reasonably spacious but don't expect cloths on the tables etc. You can gets variety of food here - the local specialities are good. We tried Sopa San Cocho,... More

Reliably tasty home style cooking. The corvina with garlic sauce is so tasty. If you like octopus, the octopus with garlic is also delicious. The wines come in half bottles and are extremely well priced. The only negative is some of the waiters are a little slow.

Very clean restaurant. Great menu. Friendly staff, some English speaking servers to accommodate those not fluent in Spanish. I used this restaurant for mostly breakfast, which I may add was delicious. Had lunch a couple a couple of times, sandwiches and salads good. Fruit salads very fresh and plenty of. The value in my opinion great. Wifi connection great.

Locals were in evidence on our visit. It's not fancy, but the Corvina was great and the portions ample.

We went here a total of two times. We wanted a quick simple meal and we found one. I had pork the first time and my husband had chicken. The second time I had the chicken and he had steak. We both agree that the chicken was very tasty, though it took a while to get our food. People were... More
