....if only they could try and have one or two real vegetarian dishes this would be an excellent place for lunch or dinner. However they do have a tiny selection of sides - all starch - no greens. Service is fast and attentive. Margaritas are so so. Piña coladas are good. Most dishes ( we were 13 in our group)... More

The food was very good especially the ceviche (3 kinds to try). We all had different meals and we all were happy with our choices. The beers were cold and plentiful. The service was good. Nice view of a cove with a variety of boats.

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.
