Cool beach bar with great vibe and food

If you are looking to escape resort food, or just looking for a good, inexpensive place to eat, Pipa's is your place. It's a casual beach bar at the far west side of Farallon beach.

Rare in Panama to find good beach access with good food outside of a resort. As long as you have a vehicle or come with a tour bus this is one of the few spots with the aforementioned duo. This place is far from Panama City but great if you are in Farallon. Great service, food, value and beach!

My husband and I had lunch here on our last day in Panama, and it made for a wonderful memory. The food is delicious and fresh. The service is helpful and friendly. The location can’t be beat. While we were eating, a fishing boat was hard at work, just down the beach. We were able to watch them bring in... More

Pipa's is without any doubt the place you must not miss while in the area. Having the perfect fresh fish on your plate, your feet in the sand, the sun shining and the ocean making its relaxing noise. We know and love this place for years, it has constantly grown better. Just visit them on Facebook ... Have been there... More

Friendly, beach-front establishment. Great establishment for watching the pelicans diving for food and the sun worshipers strolling the beach.

Spent a pleasant afternoon in Pippa's with a team building event and dinner. The place is in a nice beach area and people just come and spend a day relaxing in the beach.

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.
