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

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.

The restaurant has 2 separate areas, the fancy one, and the one where the tapas are being served. I have experienced the slow food & fancy section. The food, is fantastic and definetely worth living the experience. Get the fish.... You will not be dissapointed. Also, Very good attention. It seemed that we were having lunch in Madrid or Barcelona.... More

For starters we had the quail eggs with caviar...delicious! For main course...the paella for two...again delicious! It was saucy and not dry -the rice was cooked perfectly, the shrimps slightly small but edible. Service was good. Definitely one of the better restaurants in Panama.
