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

Our landlord in Panama recommended the restaurant for us, and we are happy we took his word for it. The menu was familiar to us from our days in Nicaragua: fish, shrimp, and chicken in 4 different sauces, but the taste was worlds apart. I had shrimp with creole sauce, and it was heavenly. I wasn't hot or spicy, then... More

Great unfussy spot on the Causeway - good value for money in a good setting, with a view over the bay. Good seafood dishes and pleasant staff. There is sometimes live music which adds to the atmosphere..
