They have an eclectic menu with something for everyone. Portion sizes are not huge, but the food was excellent. The service was the best we had during our 4 days in Panama. It can be a little tricky to get to if you are not staying near the old town. Don't let that stop you. They are supposed to have... More

We enjoyed a relaxing dinner and drinks at the roof top bar, and were not disappointed. The food and drinks were good, and the views were gorgeous.

We stayed at this crazy, noisy hotel one night. I would not recommend it unless you want to stay in a party atmosphere. But the breakfast included with the room was the best part of the stay. I had a great open face omelet with fresh spinach, tomatoes and feta cheese, and it was really good.

This is a very cool location. The food was great. The decor is eclectic. We went for lunch, the waiter brought the lunch menu, but Python full menu is available if you ask. The jumbo shrimp was ver good.

The tapas taps into a wide variety of different kitchens - Asian, American, South American, Greek, Italian and Spanish. The servings are quite generous, so be careful not to over... More

We were visiting old town area as part of the trip and found this corner joint close. We were pleasantly surprised. The menu had lunch specials which included the authentic plantain chips and a drink. The kids enjoyed lunch as well. We had the pasta and panini sandwich.
