We just happened to be wandering around and hungry and the greater out front just caught us at the right moment to convince us to come in. The food was flavorful and well presented. My wife's ceviche came in a halved coconut and was quite delicious. Checking out the room and seeing what others had ordered, if you ordered the... More

My family is visiting from the USA and going to Casco Antiguo on a Sunday was a really nice experience. I don't get to go that often to this part of the city, guess because I'm not very acquainted with the streets and all, still, we manages to make a last minute reservation at the restaurant to have lunch and...

We stopped off for lunch here after a busy morning of exploring the old town. The service was very efficient and the waiter was helpful with explaining the menu. The ceviche was wonderful and full of flavour. Worth a stop if your in the vicinity.

Diablicos was very accommodating when I and 22 of my friends made a last minute reservation. The food was delicious and the service was second to none. They had live music and dancers which also a great addition.

Diablicos was very accommodating to our large group this week on short notice. The live music was outstanding and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend for all foodies looking to try authentic Panamanian cuisine.

Fantastic local cuisine and friendly staff. We were "herded in" to the restaurant by one of their staff, but were quickly quite pleased to be there. Lots of tourists, but still had the local flavor. We go there on every trip! Great location too!

We had a nice lunch sitting on the patio watching the people go by. Food was OK. Service a little slow however we were in no hurry. Prices were good too. We had Arroz con pollo. Was different that Costa Rican style, but good as well.

I was really hoping to be wow-ed by the recommendations from concierge who says it's better than El Trapiche and Mi Ranchito. It's got a nice setting. We missed the live music/dance performance so might have been even better. I had a too sweet Margarita with Don Julio ($10). We had empananda with fried pork skin that was fried just... More

Really great traditional Panamanian food with good prices. Wait staff didn't have the best English, but with his English and our Spanish we managed to get by.
