Nice ceviche!

This place is known to have some of the best ceviche in the area. The food was very good. The staff does not speak too much english so be prepared to practice your spanish.

Nothing fancy, no frills but basic Panamanian food. Mainly locals, TV blaring like many traditional eateries. Rice and shrimp dish was bland but fish with herbs was quite delicious.

They have a very good food, specially the fish, but the place is hot and many flies around. There are not many parking spots, but can park around.

Everything is fresh and prepared to your liking. The service nice and friendly. Traditional dishes are their forte and they do them well.

The food is average at best. They were out of all fish except for amberjack and whole fried corvina. There were no potatoes, fries, or salad available. I ordered the clam appetizer. It was good. Everything Else was so-so, and not inexpensive by Panamanian standards.

All of the dishes we had here were excellent. The seafood was very fresh. It seems to be a very local place. They have a menu in English as well. And the passionfruit juice was delicious!

We stopped in for lunch today and were extremely disappointed. The food was way below average and some items on the menu were not available.

We stopped in for lunch last week while in Pedasi. We were looking for something fast and not expensive. I had the chicken and rice and my spouse had the shrimp and rice. each entree was about $5-6, so not that expensive by US standards. Each of the dishes were ok, but nothing special. I suspect that some of their... More

The garlic clams were served in a brown type of soup that made me want to pick up the bowl and slurp! (I didn't - always a gentleman!) And the garlic tuna was outta sight! Fresh, tender, tasty, ah, did I mention fresh? The place looks like something out of a Panamanian still-life, no English spoke, so wither have some... More
