It is better to make a reservation as this place is very popular. It is a fancy place so always a good idea to dress up. We went for lunch and we did not have a reservation but it was good that we arrived before the lunch crowd. The menu was not that extensive but with enough choices. For appetizer,... More

My husband and I with our guess from Chicago had dinner at La Casa del Marisco, We enjoyed excellent service from the Maitre'd to the waiter and waitress. I had Merlusa - delicious, the guess had the zarzuela de mariscos. He indicated that it was as good as its presentation. My husband had the grilled corvina, for a picky eater,... More

Good seafood dishes with a traditional Spanish flare. Their bacalao dish is awesome, order extra bread to soak up the sauce. I was not impressed with the service though.

We were unimpressed. The restaurant decor was lovely and there seemed to be many service people, but still, the service was terrible. The food was fine, but not memorable. The price was on the high side, but not excessively so. We tried this restaurant on our last trip to Panama and found it ¨average¨. Our hotel recommended it, so we... More

The seafood was good. I specially enjoyed the "centollo" which is only available on this time of the year but a bit expensive. Prawns and squid in its ink where awsome. Perfect with a white Chablis wine. BUT... I really think this restaurant should make a little effort to update its environment, food presentation and be more creative with its... More

Very good seafood and list of house special with a heavy focus on Grouper, Sea Bas, Lobster and Shrimp. Wine list is very spanish red centric. The atmosphere is great for couples, groups or business. Short taxi ride from most hotels. Reservations are accepted.

Outstanding food and a great variety on the menu. My Spanish was much worse than their English; but ordering was a challenge. Price was a bit high -- not "special occasion" but definitely not casual eat-out pricing. Facility was very attractive.

Here with a group. I wish we had been seated in the main restaurant because it was so pretty, but we got a room upstairs. I found it too loud and stark (I thought it kind of smelled too), but the service was attentive and the food good. Prawns were a little over cooked for me, but swimming in butter... More
