Tantalo seems to be the HOT spot at night because of their rooftop bar, according to other reviews. However, we stopped here during the daytime for a late lunch and happened to catch the end of the lunch specials. The lunch special menu was diverse - salads, sandwiches, appetizers, desserts - all very reasonably priced! The food was very good,... More

This is a fun place to catch a drink or a meal. We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed several small dishes (tapas style). They take such pride in their food presentation. It is worth stopping in just to see the light fixtures hanging. Quite a sight!

Tántalo is "must" for when you visit Panama City. This restaurant has great staff, great views, great food, great drink and overall great atmosphere. The menu is extremely eclectic but I have not tried anything that I didn't enjoy. Because it is so eclectic my friends and I ordered several dishes and shared them tapas style: Tuna carpaccio, shrimp mac... More

Very good cocktails, decent service, all ages represented. We ordered two very good plates(ceviche with apples and mayo; and the Cuban pulled pork) and two very mediocre plates(deep-fried sushi roll and the Saganaki, which was more like a deep fried mozzarella cheese stick). We found the roof top bar a little disappointing...great views and the staff is fun, but lacking... More

This wonderful restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel staff at the Intercontinental Miramar. What a delight! Our waiter, Sam, spoke very good English and suggested menu items for us, When our dinner was over, we were invited to take a ride up to the 4th floor to the open air bar. The view of the city at night... More

Very good service and delicious food in an interesting setting. We enjoyed it very much and will likely return. I had a Shrimp Caesar Salad and it was delicious as was the Pulled Pork that my husband ordered.

You need a reservation. They only have two services: 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm. for a group of 6, we ordered 14 dishes. ALL of them were delicious. The ambiance is very nice, eclectic and as relaxed or fancy as you want. Out tab came to $33 p/p including, tax and tip. Yes, we had wine, beer and alcohol. Will... More
