Good restaurant with reasonable prices.

Have eaten here many times. Great location, sitting inside or out. Food is very good and a wonderful place to people-watch. Casual dress is fine. It is called Bruschetta's, but that is not the best thing to order on the menu. We usually go for the shrimp dishes......even tho the village is 45... read more

We ate at this restaurant a few times and absolutely love the food. Best patacones I have had in Panama to date. The "corvina al ajillo" is so delicious, I plan to try and make this at home with rainbow trout. The service is prompt and courteous. The outdoor terrace is a very pleasant place to eat as is the...

we've returned to this place over and over again because of th great food and variety. we ate there at least 4 times during our stay in el valle and were never dissapointed. service however could be improved - when the restaurant is full you can wait around 40 minutes till the food is ready.

Probably the best location in town. Stayed one night next door at the Hotel Anton. Convenient having the restaurant attached. Watching people pass by, outdoors undercover n the beautiful El Valle climate. We had dinner Sunday night. My girlfriend had Langostinos in Pomodoro sauce - huge shrimp loaded with flavor. No joke the best I've had since coming to Panama... More

Bruschetta's was recommended by a local Panamanian, so I expected it to be good. It wasn't. Service was surly and incompetent, and the food - hamburger & fries and a grilled chicken sandwich - were no better than average. Pity, because it's a nice place to sit and watch the world go by.

Had dinner there twice, breakfast once. Breakfast was outstanding (fruit plate and huevos rancheros)..dinners were mixed, great grilled pork chops, an old, large and tough grilled chicken, decent soup, good mixed grill. Service is what I am learning is typically Panamanian, depends on the mood of the server..... Great spot for people watching.

Ask anyone in El Valle where you should go for dinner and 9 times out of 10 they’ll say Bruschetta's. The place looks great both inside and out. It’s warmly lit at night, with tables tucked under a tree outside the front of the restaurant just across from the main church. The inside tables benefit from the breeze and open... More

I walked into Bruschetta's by myself and noticed there were two other small tables of customers. I walked through the patio seating area into the building to see if I needed to be seated and the wait staff looked at me and just turned around. I walked out and sat down and eventually a young waitress came out and checked... More

If I could, I'd rate this restaurant twice...once for dinner and once for breakfast. We stayed at the hotel and had our first night's dinner here. Dinner service was TORTURE! We were hungry. We ordered a ham and cheese sandwich and two bruchettas. We wanted to order more, but the kitchen was out....at 4 in the afternoon!!! An hour later,... More

A native of El Valle told us Bruschetta's was the best restaurant in town, and even then it exceeded our expectations. It's a small bistro, with a few seats inside, where it's bright and simply decorated, and about twice as many on the cozy terrace. There's a warm glow of light from charming lamps overhead, and the steady bustle of... More
