Went for Panama for vacation and my friends insisted that Tantalo is one of the best places in Panama to go. The food was just average, but the view from the roof compensates it. After our meal, we went up for some drinks and we enjoyed it very much. The view from the roof is just amazing and breathtaking. Just... More

Tantalo has a great atmosphere, trendy decor and cozy lights. View from rooftop bar is hard to beat. Unfortunately food is average to poor and the cocktails are sugary and without a trace of liquor it seems. Stick to beer and simple dishes and enjoy the rooftop!

Just came back from 2 days in Panama City. I flew in randomly, with no plans and no knowledge whatsoever of Panama City. I was lucky to stumble in on Tantalo Kitchen for lunch on my first day -- and came back again the second day. The pork sliders are out-of-this-world good. As in, I've been to 90+ countries and...

Shared several plates and enjoyed a few of their fabulous cocktails. After dinner we went up to the rooftop bar and took in the beautiful view of the night skyline. Service was great and all drinks and meals came out quickly.

Small portions but very tasty, we had the peanut cashew nut chicken and tamarind beef, was still a little hungry afterwards but quality over quantity triumphs here. FYI it fills up quick especially on a Friday night Great bar upstairs with beautiful city veiws, cool place to party afterwards

Extremely good and friendly but not overly intrusive service and very good food. The staff did their best to feel us wellcome. The food recommended was a real treat and not just most expensive stuff on the menu.

Tantalo is a very special place in Casco. There is the rooftop bar with striking views of Casco Antiguo and the Panama Bay and then there is Tantalo Kitchen on the ground floor. They have the best executive lunch during the weekdays. Actually it is a steal. You find local trendy millenials and tourists alike. Their executive lunch platters include... More

This was an amazing place to have an evening drink and enjoy the views of Casco Viejo and the skyline of downtown! Lunch downstairs in the restaurant was yummy and a good deal too! Don't miss this!

A cracking Entraña steak and tasty fresh juices, but the curried chicken skewer tasted like it just had raw curry paste tipped over it.
