Went for lunch and had one of the best vegitarian pizzas of my life, so good that I am going back tomorrow for the meat option. Then there is the beer whixh is a wonderful experience after months of local beer. The belgian style beer has a delicious fresh lemon flavor and I had to stop my self from downing... More

La Rana Dorada is clean and comfortable, albeit fairly small. There were 4 of their specialty beers offered, from a light wheat (4%) to a bitier IPA (5%). We tried them all and all were fairly good. Perhaps being from a major microbrew city, we're a little beer snobby (even though I'm not the biggest beer fan), but I do... More

A bit pricey but for very good quality, so it's really fair. The home made beer is excellent and gives a nice change from the Balboa you find elsewhere. Food is also very good and well done. We love la Rana Dorada !

This is well worth a visit if you want some premium quality beer! The food is great too. There are two places in the city to get these exceptional beers and good quality food. One is right near Einstens head in El Congrejo and the other one is where the actual brewery and pub is situated at the entrance to... More

Loved this Spanish version of an English pub - great food and atmosphere, tables both inside and outside. Great selection of food and in-house beers (we really enjoyed the Belgian White/Blanche) and the service was outstanding. I was trying to figure out how to order some samples of the in-house brews when the waitress arrived with a sample tray without... More

As a home brewer, I like to think I know something about beer. I highly recommend you give one of their locations a try. For the price conscious,go to their happy hour for fill pint servings at a two for one price. That's half gallon of beer for about $5. I like the porter,5%, 30 IBU and the German style... More

A great mix of locals and expats. Fabulously decorated - a real pub feel. Food is decent, but a little pricey. Drinks are pricey, but the happy hour makes for good value drinking. I think they need more wait staff during busy times. Definitely worth a visit.

Way over priced! $5.00+ for a beer. It's a good thing we went during happy hour. The food that others ordered looked good. Would go back for their "beer tour" at the Casco Viejo location.

If you know Central America, you know that there isn't a word for 'vegetarian'. So it is really unfair for me to review the food of a pub. So i'm not going to. I had the nachos--nothing to write home about. But the 2 brews that I had were. Quite good. Blond and Porter were to only 2 available this... More

First time visit and we thought the Rana Dorada was everything was pretty good including the food and beer but 2 out the 3 brews had no finish (after taste) The pilsner did however and was quite good. Service was excellent though-friendly, fast, and efficient (They use Columbians) The inside was so cold that we sat outside among the smokers.... More
