I ate lunch at this restaurant. The food was very good. I really recommend the octopus. The service was a little slow, but the taste of the food made up for it.

Very enjoyable dinner at reasonable prices. As others noted the half order of grilled mixed seafood ( not on menu) was great and more then enough for any appetite. Drinks were also reasonable. I would make this a must on any trip to Panama City.

This is a place where you always feel like there is a party going on. It's very festive and the view is beautiful. They have a huge menu and wonderful fresh fish and amazing plantains. The price is right The people are nice. There is enough variety on the menu to keep you coming back.

This was our first restaurant while visiting Panama, after a short time on Amador Causeway. Ever since we landed (and even before), my mouth had been watering for ceviche. This was my introduction to what I would find a lot of in Panama for that week: Ceviche and Corvina (Sea Bass). The food was good, and the local beer was... More

This place has very good mix of seafood and Panamanian food. Great views of the water and nice sets of walking paths and shops nearby on the causeway.

If you have a hankering for typical Panamanian food and seafood, this is a good place to go. Visited by mariners and local Panamanians alike, it is a hot spot on the weekends. My sauteed squid was very good as was my husband's octopus. My parents thought the corvina was a little salty. The best dishes, however, were ordered by... More

Great outdoor seating with views of ocean and Panama City. Came here for lunch before visiting the Punta Culebra Marine Reserve nearby. Had the octopus which was tender. Good service.

My mother and I accidentally stumbled upon this establishment after walking the causeway. We stopped for dinner. The view of the sun setting and dusk was INDESCRIBABLE! It was so beautiful!! The food and service were wonderful. The empanadas and homemade-tasting strawberry ice cream are a must! The prices are very affordable. Tuesdays there is live music. It was so... More

We arrived on a Sunday around 1PM and the place was packed - with a line in front (which always is a great sign) - after a 20 minute wait we had a table overlooking the bay and were immediately given a menu and asked what we wanted to drink. We ordered beer and split the seafood platter which was... More
