Enjoyed dinner and the show. Food was reasonable and the show was better than expected. We had a sampler in the beginning and all of the food was well prepared and good. The main courses all exceeded our expectation. The show was loud but the dancers were good and it was a great way to end an evening. We had... More

Diablicos is next door to the tourist police office in Casco Viejo so it is easy to find. it offers a reasonably good menu and floor show that starts at 8:30. While reservations are requested, they are not required. Ask to sit in Georges section. He seems to know and anticipate your every need or desire. We let him order... More

Exquisite!! If possible I'll recommend you to pick... More

You can't help but notice the statue with the dragon-looking head from the street. The devilish theme follows inside with more statues and many colorful masks on the walls. Our party of 6 came here for a few drinks and apps one afternoon. We shared an app sampler and enjoyed it, particularly the stuffed plantain cups and empanadas. The menu... More

If you have a fine palate, like good food and don't know Panamanian food it is the place that you need. They can present you the real Panamanian food like a Fonda Restaurant BUT with a gourmet touch... additional the owners know about service, so they have bilingual waiters and good attention always the restaurant are not full! Also you... More

Interesting place with character. Food is tasty but prices are higher in comparison. Service is decent. Almost no vegetarian options. Seems like on some nights they have shows in their tiny foyer! Lot of masks and traditionally dressed servers.

food and ambience were very real. ropa viejo and arroz con pollo with panamian beer. add a local resident for flavor and you are in the heart of a town between two worlds.

Nothing outstanding but nothing particularly wrong either. We only had drinks outside, service was slow and non attentive, prices were on the high side for plastic tables and chairs. Location in the old town is good but there are many more places with amazing food in that neighbourhood to choose from.
