Over priced and the service was not great.

We ate dinner here, the fish was tasty but the beef was tough and tasteless. The service was not that good. It was over priced for the amount of food you received.

Food was good. Nice place to eat and have a drink while watching the activity on the causeway. Service was slow, but food was good.

My husband and I had the Garlic Shrimp with Caesar salad and we both thought it was very good. The place was empty, like others have said, but I'm not sure why. The location is good, though construction is marring the city view, the décor is pleasant and the service prompt. I had an excellent drink - the lycheetini, a... More

We heard some good comments about this place. When we got there, we were put off by how empty it was and the very bare and basic decoration. We decided to give it a try and don't regret it. The ceviche is amazing. The service was first class.

Food was good, but not special. Ceviche was very good, however. No real atmosphere or view. Service was ok. Yes, the two girls were riding bicycles in the dining area. It wasn't a problem since the place was practically empty. I would return to other restaurants before going back to this one.

This restaurant is not to be missed. There were six in our party, everyone ordered a different entree and it was all well-prepared and delicious. I was disappointed that an appetizer I wanted to try was not available.

We stayed on the Amadour Causeway the week between Christmas and New Year and had dinner at Barko three times. It was so delicious (you HAVE to try the ceviche - all of them!), and the service was very good. There is a language barrier if you don't speak Spanish, but the staff tried very hard (as did we) to... More

The location is great with a nice view of the Panama city skyline. The food was good and the prices were good, about $30.00 per person. The service was good. The only negative was that a short distance down the street is a restaurant named Bucanero's that is much better. Check out my rating of it.

This is a superb location at the begginning of Isla Perico. Expansive and somewhat romantic in a location that would normally offer a good view. Currently there is construction so the views are being purposely limited. The food was surprisingly good and the service was adequate The issue? They allowed 2 young girls to ride their bicycles inside the restaurant... More
