It was a special event for a group of about 20 well-seasoned and demanding travellers - and we were all very well taken care of. High calibre service and food.

I was very Impressed with this restaurant and service. Located opposite the Holiday Inn Express, and getting there mid evening I went as it was a handy location. Food is very good and the service is friendly but sharp - Something which is not to easy to find in Panama. I went there the following night and treated to the... More

The location directly across from our hotel, Holiday Inn Express, made this restaurant the obvious choice. I was impressed by the ambiance of the space and courtesy of the hostess. We don't speak enough Spanish to order (only enough to start a bar fight) so we were assisted by the bilingual hostess. My Cosmopolitan cocktail and our Argentinian wine were... More

The level of service and quality of the meal is unsurpassed. Sophisticated menu and dishes make this restaurant a superb experience. This is my second experience at Rausch and the Magret of duck as well as the Boullabaise is wonderful. The 6 course meal is extraordinary and very reasonably priced for the level of the quality which is unsurpassed in... More

We had the Degustation Menu without the wine. There were 7 courses. As a chef i have to say it was really good but not the standards we are used to in Europe. The Service was very good. They explained us every course and have been very attentive

Went there based on some recommendations. We started with the waiter bringing a bountiful basket of breads...about 6 options from baguettes to brioche. All seemed wonderful until we took our first bite...none of them were warm....all of them were room temperature and the taste of the rolls were just average. We then had several appetizers: Tuna tartar, soft shell crab... More

My score (average) is not because this is an average restaurant, but compared to restaurants of the same standard. We visited on Boxing Day and definitely had a great dinner and a great evening. The food was well prepared, presented with care, but for a restaurant with this kind of a reputation it could have been slightly better. My meat... More

We have visited Rausch twice so far and very happy with the food and service. The food is very modern and we are sure they use great fresh qualities. Panama offers many great restaurants and Rausch is one of the best. Best is to make a reservation. They have two restaurants so when you call them make sure you mention... More

We went to this restaurant due to its top position on Tripadvisor. This restaurant is overated. The food is very good. However, I don't understand why this restaurant has a huge TV screen... It does n'y fit in the context. The service was terrible and several items on the menu and the wine list were missing.
