Las Clementinas Cafe and Bar is an iconic restaurant in Casco Viejo. While the ambiance is distinctively Old Panama, our menu might be described as contemporary Panamanian comfort food. Our highest culinary priority is to use the best local, traditional ingredients we can find while exploring the medley of cultures that have made Panama one of the great cross roads of the world.

Touring El Casco Viejo with my friend and "curator" of the area this Wednesday, we came across this delicious corner at the end of the street that mark the border between Sta Ana and El Casco Viejo. Housed by Las Clementinas Hotel, which offer beautiful rooms/mini apartments, as they come fully equipped with a kitchenette, the restaurant is conveniently located... More

We arrived in Panama City after a long haul flight from Europe. We were quite tired and the family opted for dinner at our hotel. The restaurant had just reopened with a new management and a new menu. And it turned out to be simply great. Our waiter recommended that we ordered several different dishes and shared them between us.... More

Although the prices are not ideal, if you are in to eat a delicious burger this is the place to go. I was very satisfied with my choice to come here.

This is a good solid choice. Nice food. Good for groups or families. Everyone liked what they ordered and we were a group of ten with five moms and five twelve year olds. All were happy.

Hello! Thank you very much for writing. It's a little-known fact that we are incredibly kid and family-friendly. Our garden makes a great place for the kids to play, while waiting for their food or while the parent eat theirs. We're so happy your group enjoyed their time with us and thank you again for posting!

We knew of the restaurant based on all of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and it didn't disappoint.

On our second night in Panama City we visited Las Clementinas, which offered plenty of vegetarian options as well as some tasty treats for the carnivores. We were seated in a small garden area out the back and were eager to enjoy our meal. We started with a pepper and hummus dip with bread, a spinach, roasted pepper and lentil... More

Dear Bontaks, While I was pleased to hear that you enjoyed the food during your dinner with us, I was incredibly disappointed to read about your service. That is simply not our usual standard.
