My family ate here twice during our stay in Panama because the food was tasty, inexpensive, and convenient. Both times I ordered different sampler platters, and everything was delicious. These turned out to be great ways to try a lot of different dishes.
The only downside was the noise. One night we sat outside, and the outdoor seating is right a long Via Argentina, a loud street. The other night we sat inside, where there were a number of families with small children (not the restaurant's fault, obviously) and the door to the kitchen kept slamming loudly as servers walked in and out.
