Never went back, owner very short tempered and he is the one waiting on people. I think he should stay on the back, food was ok, never came back to this joint.

I went to this restaurant with a work colleague after having been told Degusta listed it as the #1 restaurant in Panama City. I've now been twice and I have to say that it has been very good both times. Service was very good and the food was terrific. Our group did find, both times, that going with the specials... More

My wife and I went to Casa Tua for lunch and were delighted with the food. We sat down and were greeted with a small bowl of delicious lentil soup. I was quite hungry and decided to eat well! I ordered a chef special of eggplant parmigiana as an appetizer, then for the primo I had the spinach and cheese... More

I had seen several good comments on Casa Tua and decided to pay them a visit yesterday. I was completely blown away by the food! We started with parmesan be and a cheese with tomatoes and rugula, all good! We had 4 of the 6 of the week speciales, including a lobster risotto, lamb fetuccini, pesto penne with salmon, and...

The food is excellent and the servings are abundant. The service is VERY kind and attentive. But the prices, especially for the beverages, are considerably higher than you'd pay in similar restaurants in Panama. And, considering that the ambience is quite plain, you're really just paying for the food. All in all is a very good gastronomic experience, but keep... More

I had been to Casa Tua once and the food and service were amazing. Unfortunately, that was not the case on my most recent visit. The restaurant is very cozy and you feel welcomed as you walk in. Everything started well but it went downhill after the appetizers were delivered. We were a group of 8 people and we knew... More

This is definitely not a fancy place - very small and the owner visits each table, which is a nice touch. Food and wine menu are limited but we all found a plate that we were happy with. Service was above average for Panama, which is a plus. Eggplant parmesan was excellent! We will be returning.

The two best things are the service and the atmosphere. Don't expect anything fancy in terms of the decor of the place. What appeals most is that it is kept simple and it gives you the feeling of sitting in someone's home. The place is small and cozy. The owner is fantastic and knows how to make guests feel welcome.... More
