Good service and good food

We stopped here to begin our bike trip on the Causeway and it was a very enjoyable experience. The place is clean and the service was very attentive in our case.

Wonderful view. Good food. Outside seating. Reasonable prices. Shrimp was especially good. Beef was just OK.

This place is right on Amador Causeway near a ton of tourist stuff so make sure you hit the bikes and other attractions before you head here because you will definitely overeat. The food is phenomenal. We ordered a massive platter (enough for more than 4) and individual plates for ourselves and it was way too much - but everything... More

Had dinner here based off of recommendation of local family members from Panama. Nice atmosphere and normally phenomenal view of Panama City. Currently the Amador causeway is being expanded to a four lane highway which is blocking the view of the city. I had El Campina (Carne Asada) with arroz blanco. It had a lot of flavor. Also ordered empanadas... More

We were here for a lunch stopover last week during our Barefoot Panama City and Canal tour. We had the shrimp ceviche appetizer and this was delicious. Our tour guide also recommended the sampler platter, and he was able to arrange with the manager for us to order a half order (1/2 sampler platter), since he knew this was a... More

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.

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

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
