This place charges you threw the roof for "traditional" food made in a none traditional way. After coming to Panama for 10 years. This place feels like robbery to me. Even when you send back your food, they will still charge you.

I found this place by chance, while walking around the old town. The owner happened to be outside the restaurant, before it opened. He invited me to come inside and look at the menu. I asked him why most restaurants in Panama only serves "sea bass" (locally, corvina). He assured me that his restaurant serves mahi-mahi, tuna, etc. And that... More

Stop by this interesting and colorful place for an authentic Panamanian meal. Our server Jose was very good recommending meals....Arroz con pollo delish. Ceviche amazing and the red snapper divine..please try the coconut flan. Visit !

Finding a good place to eat in the Casco Antiguo isn't that hard since there are many choices. But finding just the right spot at the right time can be tricky. I was directed to Diablicos by a local (who has guided me around Casco in the past). I had the Lechona Santena (pork with tamale and ripe plantains) with... More

The place is a rip off in my view. Food is so so (half of use liked ours, half did not..mine was very dry) and you can get better elsewhere. The prices where relatively high,and worse, the service was just about selling and increasing the bill and getting you out to put more bodies in the seats. When i asked... More

Good food, atmosphere and service. Nice variety of menu choices and even the less adventurous diners in our group were happy with their meals. I suspect that it is on the pricier side of restaurants in the area but finding a good, clean, authentic restaurant in an unfamiliar country can be difficult so I consider it worth it. I definitely... More

I wanted to impress my aunt from California and my brother from Florida who were visiting me. Being a Panamanian myself, I´ve always enjoyed the good food and the folklore dance/music entertainment Diablicos has to offer. They did not let us down. The Ropa Vieja (shredded beef), Arroz con Pollo (rice and chicken) and Garlic Fish, accompanied by Patacones (fried... More
