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

Just 2 blocks away from our hotel they hosted us for five times in our stay! Service is perfect white tablecloth, tuxedo maitre, acceptable wine list and obviously an excellent fish. In several rounds we had Corvina end Meru in different style, shrimp brochette ( too much garlic ), delicious corvina's ceviche, tuna carpaccio, croquettes in different fillings. To keep... More

This was an excelent choice for our first meal of the year! The food was delicious and well prepared, they have a good selection of wines and beef if you like it, nad also it is an ample space with high roofs, not very noisy yet not dead. I liked it and enjoyed my food.

My evening started being turned away at the door in front of friends and family by a b-stard of a doorman who told me my $300 DG sandals were not acceptable in his establishment. This is apparently a men only issue because as I protested, I watched ladies from the Chuckie Cheese Olympic Team enter wearing flip flops. After a... More

We were a party of 7, and every body was very pleased with the dish they ordered. Highly recommended is the fish called Corvina. Service is... More

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
