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

We dined here 3 times during our 7 day stay. The staff was accommodating, the atmosphere relaxing, and the food was very good.

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

I went there to have lunch on a Sunday. The food was not up to the price and the service was slow. I would recommend other places, this one is too pricey for the quality you can get.

Almost two years from my last visit, I can tell you that the food still good. Shrimps with coconut, Corvina's ceviche and peppered salmon are great. Service is friendly but very slow. They need to be awake!! The trip to the island have traffic but it's worth.

we went in a group of 12 on a weeknight and they couldn't handle us well. The seafood was pretty good, especially the corvine, and the ambiance was nice. A little steamy, but that's Panama. mixed seafood appetizer was a hit with the group

Barko was a great find on the quiet island of Perico located on the Amador Causeway in Panama City. With a nice view of Panama Bay and a strong breeze on a hot day it was an enjoyable experience. The wait staff was very attentive and there were plenty of options to satisfy your palette. I would recommend the garlic... More
