I've been here a few times to go for some drinks on the rooftop. Great view on one side the old city and on the other side the new city. Amazing decoration.

We went here for our wedding anniversary dinner while traveling in Panama City. The atmosphere was trendy yet casual and the prices were great. We enjoyed many different dishes from the tapas menu and enjoyed them all. The service was great as well. As many other reviewers commented, it is really dark inside the restaurant, which creates a certain ambiance.... More

Great for sharing small plates, the service was a bit slow, but not a problem if you are not in a hurry. The atmosphere is trendy, music at night, great rooftop.

We went for breakfast and were less than enthused about the meal. Coffee tasted like it was the instant stuff. But, when we came back a few days later, we had the best time at their rooftop bar with views of downtown's skyline. Food was excellent! Drinks were expensive, though. Definitely more of a nightlife scene.

A friend and I arrived in Casco Viejo late and starving and the nice guy at the front desk of our hotel recommended that we walk around the corner to Tantalo Kitchen. He described it as small plates but very good. Well, I'm here to tell you it was more than good..it was excellent! I was so stuffed and happy... More

The food was spectacular, we had the ducky duck, Thai noodles and banana cake dessert. The service was supper efficient with friendly servers, fluent in English. Reservations are required beforehand, however table was ready within 5 minutes. After dining, if you care for a party setting the roof top bar offers a wonderful view of the city with great music....

The hamburger we had was ok, nothing special but at least cheap. But if you want better go to the Fish Market next to the American Trade. Rooftop too crowded.

The place is a restaurant on the 1st, hostel on 2nd and 3rd floor and a rooftop lounge on the 4th floor. The restaurant's food is GREAT! It's kind of a "tapas/family style" restaurant where portions are large and is good each persona chooses 1 dish and then share along in the table, quality of the food and flavor are... More

One of the best top roof terraces in Casco Antiguo. Amazing view of the Casco and of the city. You can have dinner at the restaurant in the lobby. Funky and modern decor. Full array of drinks. Varied menu: from ceviche to thai noodles to steak. It is a place to go and share dishes between your party. It´s better... More
