We were just getting acquainted with the area as this was our first night in Panama. Stopped for a drink at Barko & we had trouble communicating with wait staff...so we were not going to stay and eat there. Then the owner, Michael Brown, pops over & being from New Zealand, spoke English. We had a great (& informative) conversation... More

Our group of six had stopped for drinks and after talking to the very helpful and charming owner/manager, Micheal, decided to stay for dinner which turned out to be one of the best meals ever! The seafood was fresh and seasoned to perfection... My husband's tuna was a house specialty and we will probably return for seconds! I would so... More

After a wonderful trip to Isla Contadora, finding a flat tire on our car at Balboa Yacht Club we opted for eating on Amador than going to El Cangrego. We stopped in at Barko and were pleasantly surprised by the attentiveness of Gabriel, our server. We ordered sangria and he brought a bucket of ice without us asking us if... More

A great location on the marina and we had really nice seafood. We had the civeche which I though was delicious and a tuna main which was heaven. A bit more expensive than you can find in Panama but was worth it for us.

Nice place to spend some time just watching the marina the tranquil waters. I had a great Pesto Pasta, one of the best I have had ever.....Unfortunately, I found a straight black hair towards the bottom of the plate, nicely wrapped around my fusilli. I was mildly disgusted, and showed the waiter the (hopefully rare) find, and he looked sort... More

The place was empty, but our meal arrived after an hour. The meal tasted like expired frozen seafood. The seasoning was terrible. Do not go to this place.

Went on Sunday afternoon based on recommendations on this site. The Ceviche was okay, nothing special. The Caesar Salad was wilted lettuce with way too much dressing and not worth the $9.00 price. They did not have the lobster that was on the menu, so my wife had the Mahi Mahi which was not cooked properly. I had the Grilled... More

We stopped at Barko while spending time on the causeway. It had been awhile since we were in Amador and what a pleasant surprise to find this restaurant. We stopped by for a few drinks and a snack before going to dinner later. Well, once we ordered the Calamari with the Spicy Red Curry Mayo, we no longer needed to... More

Ate here twice as it was one of the few open on Mondays. Excellent skewer of dorado, empanada appetizer, shrimp, corvina, and ceviche. Good wine list, very good service , well trained & friendly bartender. Covered terrace or air conditioned are will make for a very good dining experience.
