Hello SusieSch and thank you for writing. We're very pleased you enjoyed your meal with us, and yes the police do make one feel safe -- although, when they start their morning roll calls at 6am it can be a little startling :) We do hope you return to enjoy another meal with us. More

A friend referred us to Las Clementinas for dinner during our brief stay in Panama City--and what a treat! Traffic was horrible entering Casco Viejo via taxi on our Thursday night (so just keep that in mind). The restaurant felt like old Panama. The decor and food were great. The service was only average. The garden looked lovely (had we... More

Hello Soujourners and thank you for the kind review! What a shame you were not able to dine in the garden. We are always happy to move people outside, even if reserved inside if there is a table. It truly is a lovely and romantic stop to dine. We are happy to hear you'll return! More

This the restaurant for a small hotel in the old city. We have eaten there many times and have always enjoyed it. The menus is varied and creative. The service is consistently very good.

We had a delicious dinner at Las Clementinas. The restaurant first served an amuse bouche that we both enjoyed. For my main dish I had a seafood stew that I totally enjoyed. We also had desert. Our meal was a bit pricey but the food was wonderful.
