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.

You get a large menu, but the menu lists everything that might be available- that doesn't mean that item is available on the particular day you are there- so be flexible, since everything is freshly caught. We had the langostinos and octopus stew, and a ceviche appetizer. Good food, very good value.

Nice family run place with local charm. Since Pedasi is attracting more and more expats, there is no way to get away, but this is close to it. Beer is cold and cheap. Fish is fresh and good. Service is friendly. Nice outdoor seating. The waitress liked helping us with Spanish while we helped her with her English. Nice evening.
