Predictable

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 expected slow service which was okay, but we did not expect such a hostile attitude from our server. We were polite and greeted her in Spanish and even ordered in Spanish. It was clear... More

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

Nice little local restaurant, menu is adequate and mostly Panamanian style. Food was good, beer was cold only problem was too much noise and dust as we were seated on the outdoor patio not 12 feet from the road. Will go again next trip but sit inside.

Good Seafood restaurant. You can almost always get huge prawns here. Fish dishes, rice dishes plus many fixings are always fresh and tasty. This is a local Panamanian restaurant with good service. Located on the main road.

Then the waitress got up and came to give us menu's, looking like she really hates us for making her get... More
