I ate at this restaurant while in town on business. The restaurant is very nice. The food was outstanding. The wine was sold by the bottle only. The price on the wine is so reasonable you really don't care. Most bottles are in the $25-$35 range. We had the fish and it was really good. I would suggest giving this... More

La Posta has a curious italian atmosphere with a great staff that never allows your wineglass to be empty or leaves you wanting in any other way. The food is great and the menu sports some interesting variations on classic italian dishes with tasty twists.

La Posta restaurant is a must if you are visiting Panama City and want to feel like you’ve spent time in an authentic welcoming establishment. The steaks, as well as the other offerings are great and they have a strong wine list. The staff are welcoming and the service is terrific. We felt that the other diners were a mix... More

I had a 4 day business trip to Panama City. One of the evenings we had a group dinner with 30 people and the hotel concierge had recommended La Posta. From the street, it was hard to know there was a restaurant there....with a welcoming entry, almost home-like. The staff was very attentive and the environment welcoming. The food was... More

We had a truly lovely evening here. The ambiance suggests you are a guest in a Panamanian home. The food was superb and the service warm and competent.

The pins coloda on the rocks was delicious. The beef with risotto was yummy. The tres leches cake was good. Nice ambience.

My husband and I have frequented La Posta since it opened: It NEVER disappoints. I even order courses that are no longer in the menu and they comply with grace. One of my favorite dishes is the warm beef carpaccio with artichokes and pistachios, yummy. We recommend it for its service, the quality of food, the great owners -David and... More

This was our first real meal in Panama and it didn't disappoint. I had the mixed seafood risotto & eggplant Parmesan, my husband had grilled scallops and lasagna. All were delicious but the risotto was truly amazing. Delicious bread too- especially the sourdough. The wine was ok. Loved the ambience. Wish that my Spanish was better so that I could... More

I was there on Monday 21st July and was solo. The staff was very nice and polite and gave me a table. The food was very good. The ambiance pretty colonial. Moreover, the restaurant has a good choice, though not a very long list, of different wines from different countries. Definitely I'll go again!

I was travelling alone for business and having seen the positive reviews for La Posta decided to check it out. The food was great and the Tuna Tartare is definitely worth the visit. The service was mixed, they were extremely warm but a bit slow. Overall I would recommend for a quality dining experience.
