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.

I had the fried fresh snapper, it was OK. But hubby had the garlic fresh snapper and it was incredible. Would order that again and again. Ice cold glasses for your drinks.

All the food was good, wine and beer were cold, but the combination ceviche was the thing that really stood out at this seafood restaurant. For $6 it had octopus, fish, shrimp, clams, and crab. Delicious!

Casual fish place - corvina, shrimps etc with rice and either garlic or carribean sauce are great. Sip your beer slowly as it take a while for dishes to arrive at your table - that's Panama.
