I definitely recommend getting the crepes for dessert, they were delicious! I had the risotto for dinner and it was not my favorite. The tables are packed pretty close together, but the atmosphere is great and the inside is very nice.

I went for the first time last Friday after reading all the reviews and none of the good reviews were lying ! An amazing spot within Casco Viejo because it is close to the entrance and you can walk from there to fun bars. The food...OMG not enough time to talk about it, but try the very original salmon and... More

This is a must visit in Old Town. You can't go wrong here. They have live music upstairs on weekends but upstairs or down, the food is really great and the service matches the food.

The only problem I found with this restaurant was that it was a tiny bit expensive. Nevertheless, I got my money's worth. Would go back again.

Very nice atmosphere, and the food was excellent. Our table had 8, and the waiter was slow in attending. Once the food was served, everything was forgiven!

In addition to the excellent location, the food is delicious. We had arepas, tamales, tuna, rib-eye steak, and salmon. Following their signature characteristic of being a fusion of high Latin, Asian, and American cuisine, each of their entrees were tasty. The service has gotten even better. We were greeted at the door and escorted kindly to our table. Our waiter... More

This place leads the way in fine dining in the revitalizing old district. Great menu, fine wine selection, attentive service, and cool comfortable settings make this a must stop in Panama City.
