If you are looking for some good food with friends, hip place with cool atmosphere and finish up with a nice cocktail in a rooftop with a view of the skyline of the whole city, my friend this is the place! Totally one of my favorite spots in Casco Antiguo and in all Panama City. If you have the chance,... More

Great ambiance but even better food. Had the tartar, octopus appetizer, duck and chicken curry. They were all good, especially the octopus. The cocktails were very well done too.

We went to this restaurant on 7/15. The roof top bar has quite the view at night with the surrounding lit up cathedrals Etc. We had drinks and then after visiting the next door bar/restaurant returned downstairs to have a bite. They serve Tapas that was quite good and fair priced. The service was very good. The decor was really... More

This place is brilliant. So much thought is put into each dish, from the preparation to the plating. The portions are not very big but the flavour is. The prices make it easy to order a few things which is great because the menu makes it hard to narrow down what you want most. The head chef, Pierre did such... More

We went for drinks and a bite to eat at the rooftop bar. Nice ambience, and the food was surprisingly good. The service was attentive as well.

This restaurant has great food and is in great part of Casco Viejo. The Rooftop bar is a must see attraction. While at this chic bar you can enjoy the views of both Casco Viejo as well as Panama City.

Our group convened here on our last night together. Several people ordered different types of ceviche, all were great. Small plates, so two options make a nice meal. I had the salmon carpaccio and the sea bass cakes. The restaurant was busy on a Friday night and it was often difficult to get our server's attention. Check out the naughty... More

Stumbled into this place completely by accident with a group of friends and it turned out to be one of the best nights out we've had. Our waiter was Felipè who was attentive, patient and an all round great guy. The food and drinks were awesome. We all ordered different dishes and had a wonderful time trailing all the dishes...
