During our four night stay at Santa Clara Beach, we dined twice at Xoco. On our first visit, I ordered the grilled red snapper (pargo) with olive oil and garlic served with mashed potatoes. My husband had the spagghettini with fruta di mare (seafood ). On our second evening, we ordered the Peruvian ceviche, the Valenciana paella (seafood, chicken and... More

We popped in for lunch on our way back to PC. All dishes were good, particularly the nuanced flavor of the ceviche frito. Like everywhere, difficult to get your veg in. Service was pleasant, albeit slow, but hey, Panama! As other reviewers have said, it looks much better from the inside. Don't think they spoke much English, but didn't try... More

Excellent fried fish, meat was ok. Good and fast service. Speak English. Place looks better from inside than outside. We sat towards the second entry where the heat came in. Next time we will eat in the climatised room.

Maybe its just a Texas thing but I don't like fish to arrive on the table The place looks like a strip club from the outside but the inside is very ethnic and inviting complete with the owners toddler running around barefoot offering smiles and giggles. Most of our party enjoyed their food, particularly the Paella but don't order the... More

We noticed this restaurant from the highway when we initially passed it and then when it was highly recommended by the B&B where we're staying, we went back to try it for dinner. It's the bottom of low season here so we had the restaurant to ourselves but it was still a great dining experience. The staff and owner were... More
