This place opened in august. They don't have a website but they do have a Facebook page. Two canadians opened this place and the tag is 'dreams do come true'. Telephone number is 507-908-8088 in panama. Apparently panamanians don't do "addresses" on the beach but it's well marked. What a find. Grat food, cabanas with hammocks. This is a gem folks should know about...or maybe not so I can keep it to myself!

The Santa Clara Beach Bar and Grill is now a pile of sand. Gone.

Loved this place for the location, the food and the general vibe....not many restaurants like this in Panama. Went on the weekend past and the place is completely GONE! No structures, no beach huts - nada. What a shame :o(

We went there in the evening to have dinner. We had a mix of dishes and everything was very good. The owners and the bartender who all spoke English took the time to explain all the menu items to us. At the end of the evening after speaking with the owners several times, they arranged a very reasonably priced tour... More

I am glad we have such a great beach bar within staggering distance of our house - Santa Clara Beach Bar and Grill is everything you want in a beach bar - right on the ocean, open air, clean washrooms, English-speaking bartenders and wait staff, great burgers, fresh whole fish, cold beer and awesome views of the bikini's (I mean...

Compared to all the others places we visited in the area, this place is over priced and the food was average. I really felt we were only paying for the view since this restaurant overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

Good seafood -especially the whole fish deepfried. Great with ice cold beer. Service is friendly . Ate there several times.Nice spot to go when you get too hot on beach as there is no shade anywhere on the public beach. If you use the public sidewalk next to the restaurant parking lot ,no need to pay(unless you are parking a... More

I was there with my family and we had the chance to met some Canadian people leaving over there. I think that the owner are Canadian too. We had a great afternoon and for me, it's the kind of place that I love and always looking for. Local spot with a touch of canadian spirit. It's always making your Holliday... More
