Good fish, great service!

It's a gorgeous restaurant, with good fish. The fish prepared in spanish way, not really my favorite way. But it was good. But the best thing was the service. Really amazing waiter, always with a great recommendation and always helpful.

Don't get me wrong. Food was great but I was expecting more from all the great things I heard about the restaurant. The decor was beautiful and we were dressed for dinner but other people who were there were a bit casual considering what we were told about the restaurant. But I would go again just won't dress up.

We have been at this restaurant many times and every time the food is delicious. We love the tiny clams with garlic and the grilled fish platter for 2. The fish, clams, and shrimp are just so fresh and simply prepared.

After 6 days of Panamanian food, we were dying for a fine dining experience. We were staying at the Marriott, and our concierge recommended La Casa de Mariscos. It was outstanding. The ambiance was great. The food was awesome. Only thing that was a little strange was that they didn't offer green salads. Oh well, it was still the best... More

This is a lovely smart restaurant, which serves excellent fish of all descriptions. We were here for a business lunch and situated in a corner table which allowed excellent privacy. Despite being one of the first to arrive, the place was full by the time we left and clearly many were regulars.

Decided to visit La Casa del Marisco after hearing time after time that they were the best restaurant in the city for seafood. While I opted for the Lamb Chops (I'd had seafood every other day in the city), my husband raved about the fish. My dish was just as tasty. Plus the caipirinhas were some of the best I've... More

Nice food, variety, fast service. Loved hot bread on the table. I don't know too much about seafood so everything's good to me, however u feel the place is kinda exclusive.

I eat here whenever I'm in town for business. The corvina a la vasca is great! A good place for hosting business dinners. Decent wine list.

La Casa del Marisco was around the corner, literally, from our hotel, so we gave it a try. Service was good. The food was tasty and I enjoyed it, but I was expecting more based on other reviews. Maybe my expectations were too high
