Great food and place

You have to wait some times but it's a great place to have dinner with your couple. Nice music and atmosphere in Casco Viejo surrounded by freshly restored buildings.

Wonderful meal! Great service! Lovely setting outside on the Plaza! Great place to leave on a evening stroll in the Old French Quarter out to the Old Spanish Seawall!

Recommended by our hotel and described as a mix of modern Peruvian, Italian and Panamanian. How interesting. And the restaurant did not disappoint. If offered, choose to sit out side on the square. Our starter was a salad of arugula, fig and cheese. Perfect. Followed by a flank steak with caramelized onions. Cooked to perfection. The best was the baked... More

Food was excellent and great variety of options on the menu. Unlike many restaurants in the area the service providers were not pushy. They were very helpful.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at an outside table. The service was excellent. The ceviche was wonderful and beautifully presented. It is not an inexpensive restaurant, but was worth the price.

Although we made a reservation months in advance, they had to scramble to seat the 6 of us. We sat in the cramped quarters inside (perhaps we should have inquired about outside seating). Service was extremely slow. Food, when it finally came, was fairly good. Wine was awful. They served stuff that was available for $6 in grocery stores. It... More

Our week's journey began here, stumbling in by accident. Simply enjoyed a few bites & beverages but all were enjoyable in the airy and comfortable cafe.

2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle wine from the cheaper range is a 100 usd. Pricey, but we had a great night. For starter I had grilled ceviche; their recommendation. It was a large portion, but just ok in taste. My girlfriend had bruschetta with serrano ham, goat cheese and figs, quite tasty. For mains we had the 10oz... More

Wonderful restaurant. We ate ceviche all over Panama and this was the best. Also try the marinated octopus entree. The service was excellent. Eat outside and enjoy the views and atmosphere of the old city at the same time.
