Don't miss the Amador Causeway for fabulous foods, and THIS is the place to stop for your meal.

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... read more

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 have eaten at Mi Ranchito many times over the years as the ferry to the island I live on leaves from right there. I usually have an appetizer and a couple of beers. And the good news is that now they offer the craft IPA beer (Chivo Perro) that is so amazing and made right here in P. City.... More

If you want typical Panamanian food at great prices, this is one of the best choices. Fish and seafood are fresh, the beers are cold and the staff are very friendly. It will not be the best service you ever had, but if you're not in a rush, it is a great place to sit back and relax. Normally, at... More

We are in the canal zone for business and our local contact took us here for our first nights meal. The food was very good, service was excellent and the sangria was exceptional. Cold local beers and great Panamanian meals. Menu had most items explained in English but not all. Servers were not fluent in English so that could be... More

I stopped here with my fiancee on way to our hotel. The place was clean. Service was good. The food was standard Panama food and very reasonably priced. Had fried yuca and patacones with chorizo and Panama BEER.

We had a short time to spare in between tours. We notified the waiter when we sat down of our limited time. He was able to suggest some options that would have us in and out in about 40 minutes. Even though we were in a rush, we were able to enjoy our food, the view and a nice cold... More

Every time that I have to go to Panamá, I must visit this restaurant. Great service, excellent food and the price normal. My favorite dish is the Cóctel de Camarón, I recommended to try next time that you visit this place, won't regret.

One of the oldest food venues on the causeway, this restaurant offers one main building with several little ranchos where you can sample several local dishes. View is okay depending on where you are placed, but you can certainly feel the sea breeze as you are fronting the second island island of the causeway with the little cove behind it.... More
