Not only were the "Chicken Bomba" (curry chicken), and Thai fish filet fantastic and reasonably priced, but members of the staff were extraordinarily helpful in a very difficult situation. We had an incident that required a great deal of Spanish/English translation, and Omar, one of Pipa's employees spent LITERALLY an entire day helping us communicate with doctors, nurses, pharmacy staff,...

The lunch at Pipa's was fantastic! Sitting right on the beach - your choice of sun or shade. Definitely worth the effort to find it - follow the little road right to the end - signs along the way. Only open until 6pm but does take dinner reservations.

I don't understand why Tripadvisor doesn't have a rating "Good" ! Between "average" and "very good" is a considerable difference while "average" tends to sound rather negative. Pipa's is definitely GOOD ! ...provided you go for an informal day on the beach and you don't mind happy children and a mixed crowd of active and passive visitors. No frills, just... More

The setting is spectacular, the service is excellent, and the fish fingers are to die for - (plus best lobster on the beach) This is what you hoped you'd find when you went looking for a beach bar. Go as far as you can through the village of Farallon (it looks dicey - it is fine during the day) Soft... More

Pipa's is a terrific seafood restaurant. Where can you go in the civilized world today and eat a whole snapper with sides for 10bucks. I have been there many times and highly recommend it. I also think it is dog friendly and you can have a table right on the beach. Of course you do get some flies since you... More

I really enjoyed the beach and the activities that they had on the panama's independence day. Yhey charged 5$ by that time but it was totally worth it for the karaoke, live music, volleyball court and the paintings for the kids. I loved the calm water and the temperature. Not that much the food the mejillones with the coconut cream... More
