This wonderful little restaurant sits at the far end of a stretch of other options. Random foot traffic is rare- you have to know what reward awaits you just after the bend in the road. And despite the location and the cheap-looking 1970s sign, cars are parked two rows deep, patroms crowded onto the patio and inside dining room. This... More

We visited this restaurant on a quick visit to Panama City, it was walking distance from our hotel so kind of chose itself. The outside was not particularly ostentatious but the quality of the vehicles outside suggested people in the know were travelling here. We went in and again it was not ostentatious but the atmosphere was freindly and there... More

We saw the restaurant while just walking around. They had a menu for us in English which made our decision to stay! Everything sounded so good so we decided to try a couple of appetizers (ranging from $7-$10) and go from there. We started with Machu picchu (ahi) and causa serrana (layered potatoes and beef) Both were excellent so we... More

We found this restaurant to be good in Boquete, Panama but this location in Panama City is wonderful. The location is a brief walk from Hotel Milan. From the Hilton Garden Inn it is about six blocks. Four of us ate for a last meal together and our Danish family wanted beef! Three of us had the filet, medium, smothered... More

We had dinner here that was excellent. I had Grilled shrimp and my husband had sauteed seafood with an excellent "semi soy sauce". Both our meals were cooked well and reasonably priced. We decided to be brave and ordered a "new-to-us" appetizer, Grilled Octopus. It was very tast and not chewy at all. The lime it came with added a... More

I really have no complaints about Macchu Picchu. I ate at their sister restaurant in Boquete and had a wonderful corvina. Decided I just wanted an appetizer and a glass of wine and chose ceviche in a chili sauce. It was fine. No real complaints. Came with very nice garlic bread. I sat outside because the air conditioning was turned... More

We were recommended by our concierge at Toscanna Inn and we walked over there. The food was wonderful! The Corvina was great as well as the specialty sampler for two that was served flambe. The Peruvian seafood dish was excellent. The only complaint was the service was very poor. The restaurant was full and there were only a few waiters.... More
