Somehow found Pipa's long after we thought we were lost and so glad we did. An amazing setting on a beautiful beach. The service was great. We loved Julio. Personable, wonderful and a pleasure to talk to. We didn't eat but enjoyed our drinks in this amazing setting and I know we will go back for a meal before we... More

My wife and I went to Pipa's twice, the first day, we were actually looking foe Woody's and as it is late in the season, Woody's was closed on Monday's, so on our long walk back to our resort, Playa Blanca, we stopped for some drinks at Pipa's. We had become acquainted with a couple from Ohio at our resort... More

We found this little place on a beautiful piece of beach. The fish is excellent, so fresh! The Thai fish dish in particular was wonderful. The setting is gorgeous, and we rented lounge chairs from the owners for the day. The service is excellent, and the staff so friendly. We returned twice.

Our first day in Farallon found us walking the beach and ending up at Pipa's for a late lunch. I had the Bomba chicken, a specialty of the owner's while my husband tried out the grilled sea bass....both were delicious. Sitting on the beach and watching the waves come in was a perfect setting for great food. Loved the artwork... More

We loved the food and the informal setting. Perfect for the beach. A bit far away from our hotel but the walk there was great.

nice views of the beach, cold beer after a long walk... Did not try the food (but it looked good from other people ordering) ... Very friendly staff. On Sunday's this place is booming with the local crowd.

I can start by saying that the Chef use to be the Chef for Donald Trump's restaurant in Panama City. He and his lovely partner decided to open up what is a Paradise. Farallon's best kept secret. I went with my Brother Carlos and niece Angie and partner in crime Gaby. There we had the best meal over looking the... More

We were so sad that we found Pipa's at the end of our trip to Panama - we would have been here every day! The location is fantastic - right on the beach. The food is incredible - try the Curry chicken with coconut rice, red snapper or the prawns. Special shout out to Cesar the bartender who was so... More

We had the pleasure of enjoying an excellent meal at Pipa's in January. We travelled for 6 weeks in Panama, Chile and Ecuador and I must say we had the best meal at Pipa's! The whole fish was delicious as was the pasta dish they modified as per our request. The beach location topped off the experience.

We loved relaxing at this beach spot and enjoying fresh fish and mojitos! Good price on a full meal and MUCH better than the resort food! We had grilled fish with fried plantains and salad ($10). Cervesas are $2 and mojitos were $4. Limited menu that changes daily, but always has some sort of fish/shrimp/etc. The servers were so friendly!... More
