My husband and I were in Waldorf Astoria Hotel and it was so nice to have a good restaurant close to us. Fresh sea food and a nice ambiance. We loved the apple pie. We were surprised that the restaurant has complementary shuttle to our hotel.

So I know the headline is harsh but this is the worst seafood I have ever had in my life. I live in the Washington DC area and came here for a meeting on Feb 2. I am staying at the very nice Grace Hotel only 3 blocks from the restaurant. I consider my self a seafood foodie. I was... More

excellent food, very fresh fish, nice traditional restaurant, full of high end locals. Very traditional approach, and set up. Dark neighborhood, make sure you secure transportation to make it to the hotel. They need to improve wine list.

When in Panama, do not miss a meal at this restaurant. Great fresh Corvina and Mero fish served with excellent and different sauces or just plain with lime or capers. Great service but be sure to make reservations in advance as this place is always full

This is an upscale and very pretty seafood restaurant. From the moment I arrived I was treated with professional yet not obtrusive service. The fish I ordered was perfectly prepared and seasoned. If you are looking for a great dining experience this is an excellent choice.

This is the only restaurant we visited in Panama with white table cloths and waiters in tuxedos. We felt we could be in a nice restaurant anywhere in the world. The food was good, but a little pricey for Panama City.

It's totally a throwback to another time. The service and food preparations are classic. Nothing over fussed with or complicated. Just good fresh seafood, simply prepared and delicious. I have never had a bad meal here and now, because of "Acha," I LOVE octopus!!! Their croquettes and garlic clams are amazing and the jumbo king crab is the best I... More
