Good but Can't See the big deal

Dined here based on the high ratings and recommdations in TA. Good food, but not as special as I thought it would be. Menu is a bit limited. I ordered the Tenderloin with the coffee rub and reduction. Very good, a bit undercooked, so order up one. My wife had the Chicken Roulade with Serano... read more

I had the coffee rubbed steak and it was amazing! The chef had a wonderful reduction sauce with it that had me wanting to lick the plate! If you live in Panama, the prices will seem high. If you are from the U.S. The price will seem low for such great food. I really enjoyed the local foods with a... More

We were a little hesitant to try this place, because it's tag line is 'Panamian food with a twist'. Since we find most Panamanian food rather bland, we thought this would be the same. It had high TripAdvisor ratings, though, so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant is located in an old Panamanian house on a busy... More

If you are looking for a really creative chef - this is place to go. Probably the best in the town of David. They know how to provide customer service, as well as, a quality dining experience. Food is delicious.

We were there 2 nights into our Panama Vacation and were pleasantly surprised. In the middle of David which is a busy Central/South American city. The chef trained in the US and gets the whole culinary experience. They had many authentic dishes from Panama that were served in very chic way. The plantain/yuca chips they serve with a special sauce... More

This place definitely proves that Panamanian food can be much more than rice and chicken. Not too far located from the bus terminal in David it is a very nice and decorated restaurant. Great place to spend your evening for dinner. We would definitely recommend the small taco's filled with tuna ceviche as a starter. Maybe it is a bit... More

My family enjoyed a great dinner here, good attention and service, great food and drinks. The sandrias, ceviche frito, octopus and dessert were awesome. We recommend this place as A Must visit !! The place is not big but we could find a good table. Service was quick and price great !

When we entered as a paty of four they offered us a small table. A request for a lager table or connecting two small tabels was denied. After we squeezed us at the small table a small bowl with chips and a garlic sauce was served without any comment. The order was taken but we had the impression that the... More

On our way to the airport in David, someone suggested this restaurant. What an amazing meal! We shared a salad and a few appetizers to save room for the cuatro de leches which was out of this world. I highly recommend the empanadas and the shrimp rolls. The food was authentic and extremely tasty. This is a must visit in... More
