We came upon Diablicos in Casco Viejo in Panama City by accident, but we are glad we did. Great service--our waiter was very attentive and helpful. The owner was right there the whole time. We ate outside on a beautiful night and the food was great--local Panamanian fish, nice wine, great service. They had Panamanian dancers inside and the mood... More

If you are visiting Panama, it is worth to eat at the Diablicos. This restaurant is decorated with devil figures resembling the powerful destructive forces pictured by the Mayan legend. In religious festivities, those images represent the rejection of the Paganism by the Catholic church. Diablicos serves very nice typical Panamanian food. The servers are friendly and will go extra... More

This was our go-to spot for lunch, Corvino ceviche with these fantastic plaintain scoopers.This was the BEST ceviche we had in PC. The staff are really sweet and welcoming. The drinks are also quite good. Great decor and laid back setting, with local charm, although you will see both tourists and locals here.

Diablicos is in the Casco Viejo, and it's very colorful. You can't miss it: there are oversized devil statues on the balcony and outside the front door. Our meal was simply average. Perhaps it's that typical Panamanian food is not a world class cuisine? I can't really point out anything bad, but have to say that there was nothing particularly... More

My entree was just fine, but I really recommend the option of three or six of the appetizers/starters. The ceviche covina is outstanding. We were there on a Saturday night and saw the folk dancing. Fun, but loud!

Just popped in to try it, as I am sort of a casco expat local, simply for a beer and some San Cocho. The beer was very chilled and great. The San Coche is a rip off. I ordered a normal one $6 not the grande one $12. Got a small bowl and some rice. Got billed for the grande... More

Went there last year, went back again this year. Loved it again. We had a group of over 10 people, we were walking around the Casco Antiguo and we stopped for dinner. The overall feeling from everyone was pleased with the food. The pricing is not bad, the waiter was very nice. If we make it back to Panama in... More

We were looking for more authentic Panamanian food and this place fit the bill. Cool surroundings and decor built around the Diablo from Carnival. We ordered beer (good and cold o a hot, humid day in May), Ropa Viajo, and a pork dish. Everything was tasty and served quickly. This was also the only place so far in Panama that... More
