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.

We tried different appetizers, all of them delicious, the main course was too. We sat outside on the plaza and enjoyed our meal very much. Service was excellent and we didn't think it was too expensive either, for the amount of food you get and also very tasty. Probably one of the best restaurants we tried in Casco Viejo.

The food is first-rate. I had an appetizer sampler that included incredibly good corvina ceviche. The steak was perfectly prepared, tender, and very flavorful. A memorable evening that included an excellent Argentine wine. You should not miss the experience this restaurant offers

We came to try this place after a recommendation from Las Clementinas where we stayed at recently. That evening everything was off- the ceviche was laden with mayonnaise which was really surprisingly to us as we've never tasted it that way anywhere. We got an octopus dish that had olive oil and mayonnaise (again!) even though the menu never mentioned... More

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
