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.

best burgers in Casco Antiguo

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 were doe ting a nice meal and that's what we got. The food was good and the service was nice and friendly. It's probably at the upper end of the price scale for PC, but not overly so.

We went to Las Clementinas on our first day in Panama City and it was a great way to start a wonderful trip. We knew of the restaurant based on all of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and it didn't disappoint. We were greeted by a very nice woman named Paula (I think) and between her, our waitress and an... More

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.

You can applaud a restaurant for trying but when failures are resounding it leaves a nasty taste. We were seated at the bar which was where all our disappointments began. Looked after by a young and well-meaning but obviously untethered bartender, we looked at the menu of drinks and asked if their martinis were made of gin or vodka. The... More

Very good restuarant with nice atomsphere. I took a steak for main course and it was probably the best meal I had in Panama City. But my starter was a bit disapointing which drags down the overall experience a bit. Atmosphere was really good with live music but I found it strange that the place closes down so early, we...

The staff are friendly, but the management are the problem. The manageress stood in the corner by the till, watching over the staff but doing nothing to help. From being a friendly and relaxed neighbourhood restaurant, it's become somewhere the staff are pushed into topping up your wine glass every two minutes. Not what you hope for on a nice... More
