Really good food and drinks. Excellent service and traditional foods. Some Panamanian food was similar to Cuban food, had great yellow rice and chicken, and ropa vieja which is a shredded beef, yum. We also had a local fried fish with a special sauce that was great. Would really recommend it.

Panamanian food isn't all that exciting to begin with. Decor here is good, but unless you're limited to Casco Viejo go to Las Tinajas instead.

Overall, this was a pleasant place for lunch. I was told this was very authentic Panamanian food, and have no reason to doubt that. It was relaxing, decent service, and not too expensive. I'd go back.

Diablicos delivers on its promise of service good Panamanian food in a vibrant environment. The have multiple locations in Panama City; we patronized the one in Casco Viejo. Service was very good, the restaurant was clean in the dining area (bathrooms could have been better) and the food was very good. As has been noted many other times, the decor... More

Nice atmosphere with all the colorful masks on the wall. Great service and traditional food. This restaurant is in Casco Viejo and a must for appetizers, drinks or dinner.

Dipped in off of a long walk to Casco Viejo from downtown. Beer was cold, wife didn't see anything to eat, felt sick. I ordered the calamari dish and a plate of four rolled up corn and cheese things, that came with some hard pieces of pork, sort of like heated up pieces of jerky. I'm thinking the way to... More

We went to the Diablicos on the recommendation of the hotel for local Panamanian fare. This location was in the Casco Viejo - the old city, and it was great. Loved it.

A crazy little place in the heart of the Old City, they put on a Panamian folk dance and singing show some nights, which is really loud but a good taste of the tradition! If you want to have a conversation though, it will be impossible with the loud music. The samplers/appetizers were great. Four of us shared six samplers... More

Came here on a mon evening and asked the server to make a table on the patio for our group of 5 and they had no issues doing soon. Service was great and very attentive. We wanted to order a bunch of stuff and share everything and they did their best to accommodate us. Food was great but a little... More

We got here as they opened so service was great. Prices were reasonable for Panama City! Food was delicious! We got the sampler appetizer, sancocho, and the ropa vieja.
