I liked the service and the Seafood. I felt very happy to be there and the food was very fresh and seasoned well. I had many choices, but selected the Salmon and it was very tasty and I would eat there again. I would always get a reservation for the best table.

Located in the heart of the banking center, this warm and elegant restaurant offers treats from the sea. The service is good. My favorite food is Corvina, with a variety of cooking styles offered (Ajillo, Criolla, Bilbaina). My favorite shrimp is the "Langostino Faustino." They constantly offer fresh seafood. I alway forward to visiting this restaurant and enjoying their wonderful... More

This was a very disappointing experience. The restaurant sells itself as an up-market, fine-dining establishment, with a relatively formal dress code. So we chose it as a treat for our last night in Panama City. We now wish we hadn't bothered. I started with a slightly under-seasoned fish soup, competently made, but no better than I could get at any... More

Had a Monday lunch here and the place was still full at 1:45pm Good mix of tourists ,business persons and politicians .Come well dressed. I assume shorts and sandals would be frowned on. Typical Latin seafood menu but well done.Parillada de Mariscos for 2 was perfect. Service was attentive without being cloying. End lunch with an espresso and Sambuca then... More

While this restaurant is a bit more formal than most in Panama City, it 's not suit and tie formal. A collared shirt and khakis were just fine. We shared a fish stew in a delicious tomato broth. Service was fine. Speaking Spanish helped but I don't think it necessary. A very pleasant meal in old fashioned surroundings.

Wow, what a disappointment. We have been to Casa del Marisco many times and it had always been good. What a shock we had on this visit. It was a miss at every level. It started when the front door was locked and we had to wait to be admitted. We then sat at the table for over 20 minutes... More

we had a delicious meal, but felt we just got lucky. The waitstaff speaks little English so our choices were limited. The shrimp (all varieties) were huge and perfectly cooked. The seafood skillet for two could easily feed three! The quarto leches dessert is fantastic! Don't forget the dress code, as we had to eat outside as one of us... More
