Very nice spanish decoration and ambience. Exquisite bread. Generous dishes, specially the "cochinillo" which unfortunately I couldn't finish. Good variety of iberian wines (port and tempranillo) Nice "crema catalana" for dessert. What I didn't like was the tuna. I think is common knowledge (specially for fancy restaurants) that tuna steak can't be overcooked. If you're gonna try the tuna, you... More

A popular local spot. The staff were friendly and attentive. The King Crab was really really good. The Lamb Chops were good, but not great. I found the restaurant to be noisy as conversations bounded off the bare walls. Good food, but I found the ambiance a little lacking, however if you like the energy that comes with a place... More

Excellent tapas, but not a cheap option. The quality of the food and the staff is excellent for Panama standards. For a European living in Panama I prefer sitting outside above the air conditioned coldness inside. Typical business focused top restaurant.

Great experience, not the cheapest in town , but certainly one of the best. Wide choice of meat or fish dishes, great wine list too!

I have eaten here many times. Nicholas is very attentive to me and my group. It is pricey, but all the good restuarants are. I am from Texas and try to eat here every time I visit Panama. Señor Cocobolo

For Panamanian standards this is a rather expensive restaurant. It has a good menu and an even greater wine-list. The diner was good but nothing special. While uncorking the bottle the waiter pushed the cork into the neck giving us a shower. He gave as a napkin for cleaning up. There was also a birthday party going on - very,... More

I can not find a complaint about any aspect of this restaurant. Everything was excellent: service, quality of the dishes, atmosphere and variety of the menu. It is definitely a place I would return without hesitation.

Went here with my fiance. Very nice and clean. Excellet service. Expect to pay in between $30 and $50 a plate. Lots of parking space with security. Service was great and very friendly.

Went there for the first time in January 2014 for lunch. Very good service. prices were modest. The presentation and quality of the food was very good. The lentil soup was perfect. I ordered seafood, and the grouper was perfect, moist in the inside.
