Best Lunch Special in Town

When looking for a lunch special especially in Casco Viejo it is a challenge to get good food and a fair price including a drink. Tantalo has a great selection of lunch items including a drink for under $7! My favorite is the Caesar Chicken Wrap, then the pulled pork sandwich. All comes with... read more

Very good selection of tapas, not for the very hungry or you should order a lot of tapas. Service was good and quick, waiters were friendly, standard food but well cooked. They have a nice open bar at the top of the old building, where you can some view of the city.

Small dishes to select and share...each one distinctive and very good. Ambience is not as fine as the food, but everyone is very friendly.

We went to Tantalo Kitchen on the first night we arrived in Panama City. A great place to relax after a day of exploring Casco Viejo; Panama’s old city, and is within walking distance from the Cathedral. The bar tenders are hot and the view of the city is amazing. I definitely recommend this place. Enjoy it!

We went here yesterday evening for some pre-supper drinks, and had a lovely time. The weather was fantastic, and we had a nice ol breeze keeping the temperature perfectly comfortable. We each had a passion fruit mojito, and they were excellent. We went around 17.30 hours, and it was still a more intimate experience. I can imagine that later in... More

I always love coming to Tantalo for drinks and look at the skyline at night. There is always a good crowd in the late hours, but around 9pm it is still an intimate level. The bartenders are friendly and make great drinks!

I went here with a group of friends for my 22nd birthday and had a brilliant time! We tasted a range of cocktails and tapas dishes - all were delicious. The lady who served our table was very friendly and attentive. She even brought my desert with a candle in which was a lovely touch. I can't recommend this place... More

My boyfriend and I went to the rooftop bar because we were told that this is an awesome place to have dinner and enjoy the sunset. That is in fact true - dinner was delicious (although pricey for the size of the plates). The service was the worst we've experienced in 4 weeks of travelling. We were ignored for 45... More
