Good Panamanian Food

No frills. Good value. Delicious traditional food with a local crowd. Skip the more expensive tourist restaurants and eat here.

This is a back-packer's heaven. $5 gets you a tent and cot next to a roaring river, great sing-along/ music jam area, great inexpensive restaurant, bar and pol table.

After the great reviews on TripAdvisor, we were disappointed to finally find (yes, it was a little buried outside the main town) that La Casita is closed. We found the sign, but no restaurant. A local told us it recently had closed.

Arrived by minibus in El Valle. Went to the so called tourist office. There I met one of the people from La Casita. I Told him that I was looking for a place to sleep for a night. La Casita has a small camping side/backyard with some tents, what fits fine to me. And as the others described they are... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by someone who lives in El Valle. So after a day of hiking up La India Dormida (Sleeping Indian), we swung by La Casita de Don Daniel to see what they had on the menu for later that evening. The owner greeted us at the gate with a warm smile and a welcoming handshake. He... More

If you want the true flavour of El Valle, a visit to La Casita is a must. Ariel welcomed us with warmth and invited us to feel at home. After offering food and beverage (good and very reasonable), we were invited to participate in the music - singing, playing or just enjoying. I chose to enjoy while my companion took... More

There is no other place like this in the Republic of Panama, nor in any of the 20+ countries that I have visited! Sure, every country has excellent music, but it is extremely rare to find so much HEART and SOUL in a restaurant. You must experience this place to know what I am talking about!
