Good fish reastaurant, especially for business

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.

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

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

This is one of the more famous seafood restaurants in all of Panama. A place where politicians and businessmen meet. Second time here. Food is good, but portions small and not as high end as you would have expected from the bill. Still cheap compared to the ?US. Few dishes over USD 25.
