Great place, amazing food, amazing decor, fabulous ambience... Great rooftop bar. Valet parking, great security and the people that come here are all on the same zen level. Been here before and will return again. Definitely a place to recommend!

We ordered a few tapas for lunch and it was a mixed bag. The grilled octopus was decent, but we had a "pizza" that was essentially a foccacia bread slathered with some passionfruit sauce and melted cheese on top. It was strange and not appealing. The Bananas Foster dessert saved the entire meal though; we'd come back just for that.... More

This was by far one of our favorite meals in Panama City. Our group of 4 ordered 5 tapas to split. It was plenty of food. The prices, once split, were reasonable. The dishes were creative, but not overdoing it. The rooftop bar had an excellent view of the city.

Enjoyed very much our dinner at Tantalo in Casco and have been numerous times to their rooftop bar. The prices were reasonable and service good. We enjoyed a meat platter which was super and the portion was large. At the bar they seem to have a high turnover of servers for some reason making the experience of returning to a... More

The ceviche (marinated fish) with 3 sauces use to be the reason I keep coming back to they Tantalo Kitchen restaurant at the Panama Old town (Casco Viejo). I had ceviche in many different places and nothing was compared to this one. However, this year I was highly disappointed that the owner decided to take out of the menu my... More

Now, this place appeared very professional. Prices are adequate to the quality of food, not like some Casco Viejo pompous pretentious places. Service was fast, courteous and smiling. Good, relaxing, and friendly atmosphere all around the property. You can have good food here and relax on the rooftop with a nice view of the city. The point I'm making- it's... More

Splendid rooftop & restaurant. The rooftop is one of the most majestic places to enjoy the beautiful Casco Antigo. The food in the restaurant is always good.

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.
