Had dinner there, Food is Panamanian . Chef uses local ingredients some from his own garden. The place is very comfortable and the service was great. Most importantly the food was delicious , with great presentation and very affordable prices. You need a reservation as place is often full. Every thing we tried was well prepared and delicious. Service is... More

I was a little worried as we got close to the end of 50th street, wasn't exactly sure where we were going. Surprised to find a nice restaurant! The food was delicious with interesting combinations and fine dining portions (not too much but maybe could have been slightly bigger). The wine selection was good, had a nice Chilean Chardonnay and... More

Maito was for me the best place to go for any special occasion, being it a special dinner with my wife or a nice way to treat a customer or visiting friends nicely, but not anymore. Although food remains good and few nice dishes are still available, service has declined a lot. The last two times (yea, I gave it... More

We were invited to dine there with old friends, and they had picked it as one of the best restaurants in Panama. We agree. The staff were welcoming and genuinely interested. The food was very good and well served. Definitely recommend!

We enjoyed our first dinner so mush we made reservations for our last evening in Panama. Out door dining on there patio in balmy weather while it was freezing at home was delightful. The cuisine is eclectic, masterful and delicious. If you do not speak Spanish you will need a smart phone translator for the menu . It worked for... More

Maito manages to pull off the fusion (I use that word advisedly here) of local, Chinese, and even Japanese to delicious effect. I enjoyed the Sierra done in a Chinese sweet and sour sauce made with hoisin sauce that was out of this world. The appetizer I shared was "Siu Mai" made with shrimp, also delish. The setting is luxe... More

Having enjoyed 4 days of Ceviche around Panama City, we were delighted to have experienced 5 different Ceviche at Maito. Exceptional cuisine. The decor ?... so so, but oh the cuisine. Just do it.

Better make your table reservation for this restaurant that serves consistant quality and never surprises with the negative. Waiters will take care of you yet the service is relax and not overacted. The kitchen creates tasteful, original plates with fresh and delicious ingredients. You may come to satisfy your hunger, not necesarily to admire the art of gastronomic miniatures !... More

Just arrived from a visit with the extended family to Panama. We had made a reservation for 13 people to this restaurant months in advance because it had been highly recommended by a friend. We got a confirmation number, a menu sent to us, a final price was sent and we were informed that no payment was required at the... More
