After a treacherous drive up the nicely paved mountain road (with VERY FEW GUARD RAILS), we arrived. Because a smaller tour bus had decided to back into the road leading to the restaurant, we parked downhill & walked there. Beautiful at first glance & in photos...but as you sit on the veranda waiting for lunch, the shoddy Panamanian concrete construction... More

Had dinner there. The food is ok and the service could be better (brought the drinks at the same time of first plate) which is something you would expect better for a place you can hear so well about it. If it gets windy bring a coat, cause they dont provide any cover of soft roofs for your help.

Wow! Ten of us had lunch here. Ten outstanding meals! The food and setting were superb. The service was excellent as was the presentation. The setting reminds one of a fine Tuscan restaurant. Do NOT miss this if you are in the area.

The restaurant is outside but shaded at a lovely resort. Service was very good. Lunch entrée prices were $16-27, with very nice presentation. The shrimp dish in Asian sauce was the best, followed by a very good nut-crusted sea bass, but the steak in olive sauce & swimming in olive oil was so over powered by the olives, it was... More

This was a lovely restaurant and the food was fine. However, dinner is served on a covered, open veranda....not a good place to be when cold winds are blowing menus and napkins off the table! Would have been nicer to eat inside around the fireplace.

Although my group had a long standing reservation for dinner at Casa de Lourdes, we were informed only three days in advance that they would not be open due to a wedding they were catering. This is an extremely popular restaurant with the Panamanians and was a prime reason for going to El Valle. With the short notice, we were... More

Lourdes restaurant was not very busy when we visited in mid-week. I suspect it requires advanced reservations on the weekend. The food was excellent. I love fish and the corvina I had was exceptional. My wife had a beef dish which she declared one of the best she has ever had. Lourdes is expensive by Panamanian standards. But this quality... More

This is a destination event as much as a meal.. It is all about luxury in the midst of a gorgeous natural setting. We had dinner here in 2007 and were the only table occupied. Very different this trip. We did not have reservations and were delighted the owners were able to seat us. The menu is fairly extensive. We... More

This was the best meal we had in El Valle. Be sure to make a reservation. Food, service and location were simply outstanding.
