This restaurant is closed. It was one of Pedasi's best restaurant. Too bad that it had to close it's doors. I hope someone buys it and continues the fine cuisine that El Patio had. Will miss it was one of my regular spots for dinner.

After dining in 2 restaurants in Pedasi, my taste buds were rewarded at this ultimate beach front location. Don't let the appearance fool you for a causal food experience- this is big city tastes in remote region of playa venao for surprising in expensive prices. The staff was friendly and wonderful. We had only 2 dishes- the chicken curry and... More

We can only speak about two dishes, grilled shrimp and grilled fish, both of which were excellent. We wanted to try their flan, but it was sold out.

We were told that they had improved since our previous visit almost 2 years ago. The service was good, food good, Sangria good, just a bit pricy, even for Pedasi. Now that we live in Pedasi, 3 blocks form this restaurant, guess we will wait another 2 years before we try it again.

Decoration is weird. Nice that they have AC. We ordered mashed potatoes with our entrees and they gave us the boxed stuff. The waiter said I would get a fish filet and the piece he brought me even had the eye! Mushroom sauce for the beef had canned mushrooms... Anyway, the waiter was nice, but the food was terrible and... More

Visited upon recommendation of our overnight accomodations. My husbund and I prefer authentic creative experiences but we're also super easy to please and although within walking distance of town, this property is tucked in a residental neighborhood with little to no flair or flavor. Out of three out of the four menu items I asked for and it felt like... More

It was such a good surprise to find this little spot in Pedasi. The Chef moved there from Spain and opened one of the best restaurants I've ever set foot in. Small but cozy with great customer service and the most delicious food in the area. I tried to convince him of moving to Panama City and make five times... More

I eat at this restaurant virtually every trip that I make to Pedasi. I have found this restaurant has the best quality filet and is only one of three restaurants in Panama where I will order the filet. The mashed potatoes are the best. Numerous friends have commented how superior the mashed potatoes to anyplace in Panama. The mixed vegetables... More

The restaurant is small, so reservations are suggested. A few blocks off the main street, but there are small signs to direct you. The food was very good, with attention to detail in the presentation. The filet was tender and cooked as requested. Our appetizer, cod-stuffed peppers was fantastic. The owner (from Spain) is also the chef, so he has... More
