So we had a day in Panama City and elected to go and walk around Old Town. Fortunately, we were there during lunch time and after walking around a while decided to try this restaurant. Actually we walked by it once and weren't quite ready to eat but Charlie convinced us that we should return when ready to eat. Glad... More

I was expecting to write an awesome review but the meal was horrible. My mother cooks "mondongo" and I'm not sure what they were serving me because it did not taste well and it was cold. I was grossed out because there was a cat in the dinning area outside. All I kept thinking was that I was going to... More

My wife's family and I enjoyed a great meal at Diablicos. It was recommended to us by one of the hotel managers at the Westin. My father-in-law and I enjoyed the sea bass filets which were seasoned and cooked well. One disappointment was that it was fried as opposed to being grilled. I had the creole seasoning which was good... More

Not just seafood, the beef was also great. Comida tipicos - the menu was full of dishes we had never tried, and it was very good. You payt a little bit more in the Historic Centro (Casca Viejo), but its still a worthwhile polace to eat after exploring the whole area on foot.

The food to this place was alright. The prices were kind of high but I was willing to accept it since were in Casco Viejo. They added 10% on service then the waiter did not hesitate to tell us that tip was not included. Why would a restaurant charge 10% in service and not give that to the waiters?

The food was good, we can't speak Spanish but luckily our server spoke English well and gave us good recommendations. We went here for lunch and I had the fried pork which was tasty, the restaurant had a definite authentic feel to it.

It was really sad to see how the bad management can spoil such a great place. Excellent location on the tourist route experiencing a miserable service: - Menu waiting time is unreasonable long; - Waiting time for even the drinks is extremely long; - The waiter is forgetting or mistaken your order; - The meals quality is below average. -...
