If you want to have a great time and have a chance to meet a LEGEND (Roberto "Hands of Stone" Duran), then you need to come here. You really do have a great time, and it is worth the not so great food you will eat. I am a big fan of fried calamari (we call it "arañitas), so I... More

Good atmosphere, good quality food, good service. Prices are a bit on the high side when you compare them with equally decent restaurants in the same neighborhood. The fun part is that the famous owner, (the legendary Roberto Durán) actually visits regularly and tells you all about his fights with "Sugar" Ray Leonard. Of course you have your picture taken...

Boxing is one of the favorite sports in Panama, and Roberto Duran is clearly a local legend. The crowd in the restaurant was mostly Panamanian, and it was very entertaining watching them mingle with him and get their picture taken together. It appears that he is at the restaurant on most evenings. As others have mentioned, the inside area is... More

We Wanted to check out Duran's before friends arrive. Also, the movie of Duran's career is being filmed in Panama City at the moment. If you want to get a better look at the memorabili, the lighting is marginal inside, so arrive before dark. It was very cold inside, so if you want to watch replays of famous Duran fights,... More

On our first night in town, after a bad experience at another restaurant where I ended up with no dinner, we stopped there for a bite to eat. I had a shrimp in garlic sauce tapas. you're was very good. We sat on their outside patio. On our last night, we went back for a regular meal, again sitting on... More

We had such a great evening at La Tasca de Duran on our last night in Panama City. This is a bar & grill restaurant but the food was fantastic. We were the only non Panamanians in the restaurant -- a real local hangout. We had the garlic clams, fish and chips "Pescado a la chorrillera", and another appetizer. Best... More

We visited this place July 2013 and we had the chance to meet and greet the boxing legend Roberto "Mano de Piedra" Duran. This was a priceless expirience and also had a chance to view an excellent collection of memoribilia that is set up across the walls. The food was great, we had the garlic clams, shrimps and calamari! Pricing... More

This restaurant was located on the same block as my hotel. I enjoyed the atmosphere, live music (Friday and Saturdays), and food. Reservation are accepted so you may want to reserve a table Friday and Saturdays when it gets the most crowded. The best part is that Former Boxing Champion and Restaurant Owner Roberto Duran comes around to greet every... More

If you are a boxing fan, you will enjoy this restaurant. It helps if you speak Spanish, but you could get by without it. The memorabilia in the restaurant is awesome. The food is pretty good for Panama. The atmosphere was good and the service was excellent! We would return if we could.

We took our kids here partly hoping to meet Roberto Duran but also because I remember my Dad and Grandfather watching the Duran - Leonard fights back in the day. Although we didn't get lucky enough to see him in person, the restaurant is still a great place to try. It is done up in memorabilia from his boxing days,... More
