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

Out of all the places we went to, Pipa´s was one of the places we enjoyed the most. When checking restaurants out on trip advisor and read about Pipa´s and we decided to go and we... 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

Be aware that driving to Pipa's seems a bit strange. It's back on a small road that turns to dirt, so when you think you're lost, just keep driving. The beach at Pipa's is beautiful and the food is made fresh and very good. The drinks are reasonable, and it is a unique experience that I would highly recommend.

This beach bar was so much fun! The wait staff was very talkative as were all the customers. A great place to learn about the area. The setting was beautiful, right on the beach itself. The food was great for a casual, fried seafood, bar type restaurant. The drinks (we had margaritas and beer were also good. A wonderful spot... More
