Very elegant restaurant without being pretentious. We dined here our first night in Panama City and it was a perfect introduction to the seafood bounty the local cuisine is noted for. The service was top notch and we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing over excellent appetizers and entrees. Our Spanish is somewhat limited so the waiter graciously offered assistance. Since dining here,...

We show up at La Casa del Marisco Restaurant and the security guard JUMPS us and almost draws his gun because we're wearing sandals! We could not get in ... so sorry for your loss however we went to Siete Mares, got in,... More

Quality of Food and Service. Traditional, upscale restaurant run buy the same family for years. Indoor decor has a modern elegance, and art is hung throughout.

This restaurant wont drop you off with new age cooking, you'll find the menu so familiar, perhaps a little easy for a restaurant of it's kind. with no surprises, every course is amazing, fresh, tender and bursting with flavor. Don't miss the tuna carpaccio starter..

My wife is from Galicia in northern Spain with arguably the world's best seafood. Nonetheless the Casa del Marisco managed to impress us on both visits. Stylish crowd, excellent food and very we'll trained staff, which is not common in panama. When I return to PCY I will certainly go here again. Thank you, Acha!

I would definitely recommend going to this restaurant if you go to panama. The food was really tasty and the service excellent. Great place to celebrate any special occasion or just to have a casual lunch/dinner. The service was outstanding, they have about 2 or 3 servers for each table and that makes it flawless. Going back to food, I... More

Had business lunch here on two occasions. Did not disappoint. High quality and a very nice setting. Big restaurant, big foot print. Haven't been for dinner, but suspect it would be wonderful. More upscale - excellent for business and nice meals.

Wow! What a great find! We loved this place. No shorts or sandals and men require sleeves but well worth getting "dressed" for lunch! Very well appointed and tremendous art work adorn this place. Service was top notch. Had the Lobster as it had just come in season and atmosphere was superb! The upscale lunch of the week and we... More

I went for a work lunch last december. Meals are quite over priced for the small plates served. I can't believe I found a nail in my dish. The manager was unable to give me an answer and ask me to leave the restaurant. Terrible service
