Best nachos that I've had... very good margaritas

I visited this restaurant twice in August, do you think I like it? Both times I visited with family. My dad is a Margarita snob, it is very hard that he likes a margarita. He loved the margarita from here and my mom did as well. I only order the regular lemon margarita but they have different... read more

I love Mexican food and expected a place of this size and location would be good in a city of this size. Mexican runs the gambit but this place was just a step up from Taco Bell. To begin...The staff was great, which we found all over Panama. Since our Spanish is limited, they got three different waiters to help... More

Orale Tacos offer good Mexican food like tacos, and burritos. They also sell good margs and Mexican beers. We were staying at the Riu located directly downtown Panama City and the restaurant was a 2 minute walk around the corner. Average american prices. $10-$15 per order.

This was our first time visiting Panama. We thought it would be nice to get some Mexican food. The only problem is we spoke only rudimentary Spanish. After some gesturing and some Spanglish we managed to order. We also ordered some water, expecting a glass of water and were brought bottles of water and charged $2 each for it. The... More

My wife and I have been eating out in Panama City, Panama, for over 9 years. We ate at this restaurant a couple years ago, but hadn’t gotten around to returning for another visit. The other night we decided on “Mexican” and reviewed our options, deciding on Ora Le (it’s two words on the website, instead of one as is... More

Good food, festive, and a great ordering/service system. They have a few rolling menu boards, place your order, food arrives....very hot and very flavorful. if you need something else, there is a service button on your table and they come immediately. No one hanging over you like you will find in Panama. I love the decor, the servers, and the... More

Place is full of Mexican Color and objects and the staff dress up like characters that are off a Mexican sitcom. They give you crazy straw hats and sombreros for photos or you can wear them a night! The menu is on these large wooden boards that they just roll over to your table. Food portions are pretty large but... More

Not a Mexican in the house, but the best Mexican food in Panama. Not the best in the world but the best in Panama. Prices are good, portions are fair. Good service. Go to the one in Costa del Este NOT the one in Marbella. Good for families or singles.

I went to this restaurant to celebrate one of my Mexican's friends. The food is very close to the real Mexican food and it is a perfect restaurant to celebrate birthdays with friends. Very funny celebrations.
