Good seafood

Good for Panama. We shared a shrimp-and-pasta dish and a fish filet with sundried tomato risotto. Everything was prepared nicely. Not traditional risotto, but flavored well and yummy. Fish and shrimp were both spot on. Reasonable bottle of wine. We had a lovely dinner.

Seats are dirty! That was the first impression. The food was OK, and by ok I mean edible! The wine list isn't bad! They have a if pizza oven, so I asked what pizza they have, they don't! So we took a look at the menu. It's fairly diverse and you would think a good spread, until everything turns up!... More

A great find in the Bella Vista neighborhood, Tomate y Amor has the best attributes for a good restaurant: good service and fresh and tasty food. Too bad they have excluded the Napoleon de creme brulee from the dessert menu, I wish I could have tried it.

We parked and were afraid to go in since there were very few cars parked there. Once inside, the restaurant; was very nicely decorated and very welcoming. We also noticed there were many occupied tables and we realize that since the area is so close to big office buildings, many of the people seating were not driving…. Long story short,... More

Was here about 3 weeks ago. Must say its always refreshing to find such great service in Panamá. However, atmosphere was not good ( bit boring) and food was ok! Has the empanadas, tuna and some pasta...the were fine, not super delicious!

Quite little restaurant just off Calle Uruguay. Pasta was alright, nothing to rave about. Nice atmosphere.

As the planned restaurant for the evening was closed we went for a walk bad found this little place. The food was really good. As seems to be the norm in Panama the waiting staff were a little too attentive, seeming to hover and whip your plate away as soon as you finish! We did sit a while though. Very... More

Nice restaurant in Bella Vista which serves nice food, The day we went , a number of other people arrived at the same time , and even though no where near full, it caused certain slowdown for the food and drinks. When the pasta arrived it was nice well cooked, with a nicely seasoned pasta sauce, and fairly well presented,The... More

Tomate y Amor was right around the corner from our hotel, the Waldorf Astoria. Our family of four was in the mood for some Italian. The pasta dishes were great. My son had the fettucine with seafood in a white wine sauce. I think it was the best thing we ordered! The bread was good, the wine was good, it... More
