We had a great meal at La Posta, especially enjoyed the banana cream pie which was delicious. For those who don't speak spanish it may be slightly difficult as the majority of the menu is in spanish and the waiters don't speak any english. That being said we got on fine, the service was very friendly and I'd definitely recommend... More

I have been there for couple of times on business diner, the food is tasty, but the best is their desserts, those same are real good, tasty and full of flavor. The environment is overall good, but once the site is packed the conversations trend to be difficult, this since the place is quite close, service is overall good, they... More

We went here on a Monday night and it was moderately busy, but the service was attentive. The menu was diverse enough, with lots of Italian dishes but a fair share of seafood and other Continental fare. I had the octopus three ways, and the bacon-wrapped prawns with a lemon-arugula salad. Both were very good. The wife had the risotto... More

Second time here. On a Monday night it was very busy, so I guess it's no secret that La Posta is great in every way. Good selection of wines and cognacs, food is always top notch and service is amazingly good. The place runs like a well oiled machine - everything is smooth, efficient and done with a smile.

This is one a classic address in Panama. Table is beautifully dressed. Staff is friendly. I tried the yellow fin tuna tartare & the Jumbo of Langostinos (was very good). The crema de espinacas is very well done. There is also a good options of espumantes & wines.

This was the first restaurant we visited in Panama City and we continually compared every other restaurant to it but none held up. We talked about going back again. The only thing stopping us was wanting to try as many restaurants as possible.

We were looking forward to a great dinner for our last night in Panama. Found it overpriced (especailly the wine and drinks) and it paled in comparison to our meal at Luna the night before.

Sorry, but I feel that we wasted one of only two nights in Panama City by dining here - there are so many excellent, interesting choices. Our friends chose it and we could not talk them out of it. I found it odd that the menu is strictly turistico, yet the servers didn't speak English (or Italian, for that matter).... More

We ate at La Posta while staying in Panama City at the advice of the staff at the Waldorf Astoria. We did not regret it. We had the sea bass, filet mignon and seafood spaghetti. All 3 were excellent. I absolutely loved the seafood spaghetti. The meals were reasonably priced and the staff were great. We had sparkling wine and... More
