This is my favorite restaurant in Panama. They provide a very good environment, fancy without losing the cozy feeling. Service is the best in Panama and the Panamanian inspired food could not be better. The chef managed to incorporate local products and traditional plates, into sophisticate , international level food. Nevertheless .... its a fair price restaurant where you will... More

Great place for dinner in Panama City! The service was attentive and the food excellent. My friend had the tuna and I had the red snapper. A staff member spoke English and was helpful with our order. Cost was very reasonable, especially compared to others in the city. Can be dressy or casual.

Very consistent restaurant. Great menu, fabulous mojitos! Everything that I have tried at Maito, I´ve liked. My favorite dishes are the beef carpaccio, the Risotto Colón and the Panamisu (which they took out of the menu, I don´t know why?). Nice indoor and outdorr seating. It is always full so book ahead!

We were at Maito 2 out of our 3 night stay in Panama. You simply *have* to try their excellent cooking. Every single one of the dishes we ordered were expertly prepared and served with a loving smile. We were so lucky to try their dried angus starter special - new tasting experiences can be rare, and this was most... More

We arrived without a reservation and the hostess told us that he could seat us outside. We waited for 10 minutes and then he took us to a table. The table wasn't even ready and it was really dark outside. After about 15 minutes they moved us inside and everything got better. The food was amazing from starters to dessert,... More

Maito is a restaurant that combines the panamanian food with gourmet cuisine. Very nice ambiance and very good food. The amounts are kind of small thous.

I went with friends recently to Maito. The food was very good. The wine list also very good. I like the decor a lot and the service is very good. Been here a few times and it never disappoints.

My wife and I had a 30th anniversary dinner in Maito last night. The food was outstanding and the service perfect. We both had the tasting menu. Each course was very tasty and presented beautifully. The pace led to a very pleasant night. Don't miss this one.

From beginning to end this restaurant never ceased to impress us. We were a party of four, one in our group did not speak Spanish and the waiter kindly translated the entire menu for him. Our waiter was personable and at our service at all times. The berenjena with feta was delicious and I followed with the red snapper that... More
