Read reviews about this restaurant and being in the old Center of Panama me and my husband went to have lunch but for us the food was not as we expected.. My beef burrito came mixed with rice and beans (pico de gallo) not good, my husband's with chicken was better but nothing special. The place has good a/c but... More

Must go while in Casco Viejo. Period. Also should try the roof bar. We liked a local microbrew they serve called 507 (I think that was it)

view from roof top at night is great. service very slow and erratic. Staff interested in looking cool not serving... food was good & reasonably priced. No prices on website - why do they do that? so hard to make choices - clearly far from the only ones!

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.

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
