My English visitors claim that the Lamb Ragout was the best they had ever had - anywhere! The chicken dish and the salmon were far superior to the best hotel fare, and the puddings were great. In fact, everything about La Casa de Lourdes was wonderful and we will certainly be returning. The surroundings with a beautiful pool, great service... More

The restaurant has a beautiful terrace and garden. The food was very nice and even the kids who are picky eaters finished all their food. Service was a little slow and we needed to get up and find someone to pay which took away their fifth star.

Went there on a recommendation from a longstanding Coronado Bay resident. Worth the trip from Coronado Bay to El Valle ... about 45 minutes ... a nice drive on a good road with a very rewarding restaurant experience in El Valle ... food, service, ambience. Best overall restaurant for us while in Panama ... the location and The neat building... More

A European restaurant hidden in the hills of El Valle, Panama! Almost impossible to find, and well worth the effort. ( the driveway will be done soon!) Yum. Price for the area is high... Sure, so? Try comparing it to NYC or Paris. Then you can compare apples to apples. We'd go back on a heartbeat. And maybe we will... More

The restaurant is very cosy with a pleasant atmosphere. The first disappointment was that waiters do not speak English and he brought me something different. I had to go to find the manager who speaks English to clarify mistakes. The portions are small. 3 shrimps for the main course portion I saw only in a Michelin restaurants. The rice that... More

Having eaten all over Panama, I can honestly say, Panamanians don't have a great cuisine. But this restaurant at what appears to be a popular wedding location for the wealthy was an exception. The food was very good, as was the service, in an atmosphere that is hard to top. I had a chicken in tamarind that I would highly... More

I've been in Panama for more than 2 months now and this is the BEST restaurant I have encountered throughout the country. The setting is lovely--a classically beautiful old family home converted into a B&B and large courtyard restaurant. Dine by the viewing pool amongst pillars and flowing white drapes--nicely set tables with fresh flower arrangements. Very professional and friendly... More

Woow, such a beautifull location and set up.

Besides that, food is fine, consiedring you are in the Valle, Panama. Wine list needs improvement. If the weather does... More
