The view is gone, but the food was great

Local food in panama lacks the spiciness I am accustomed to, but this restaurant had local favorites with excellent seasoning. Really tasty ceviche.

The filete the corvina was delicious. It had so much flavor. We ate here on our first night, but it was so good that we came back the next night. The staff is courteous, but a bit slow. The view is gone since they built the wall. But it is still worth it to come here. There are several restaurants... More

This is a typical Panamanian restaurant we first visited last May, following our guide’s suggestion. Now it is us that take her there every time. If you like Corvina and seafood visit this place. Ask for the whole fried fish, or the ceviche or the grilled version. Local beer is good and they have it cold. Service is kind of... More

Had lunch here with our guide per his suggestion. He recommended some traditional Panamanian dishes and they were all absolutely delicious and the service was quite good.

Great food and wonderful ambiance. I would recommend this restaurant for groups of 4 or more. Our group recently went and enjoyed cocktails, the fried whole fish, garlic shrimp, chicken soup, and fried spider crab (calamari). The tab for 5 adults and one child was about $150, which is not bad considering we ordered drinks, appetizers, main courses, and desserts... More

Stopped here while on a hop-on, hop-off tour of the city. All four of us enjoyed our meal. Good service with outdoor seating.

We had the corvina and fried shrimp. All delicious. Plus the waitstaff was very attentive and really did well with English. No complaints.

I wasn't expecting much after reading the reviews from Tripadvisor. I was pleasantly satisfied. Two of us ordered chicken soup (thick and flavorful), clams appetizer, grilled corvino, and langostino. Everything was pretty good. Service was friendly.

After getting stuck in a 1 hour traffic jam in a hot taxi, we found the atmosphere at Mi Ranchito refreshing. The food was a bit too Americanized for our tastes, but the wait staff was very friendly.

I enjoyed eating here several times while I was living in Panama. Mi Ranchito is my favorite restaurant on the Amador Causeway, and one of my favorite restaurants in Panama. The restaurant primarily serves seafood, and it is usually good and fresh. It is a casual atmosphere, mostly outdoors (even under cover, you feel like you are in a large... More
