“Excellent food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

This was my first expereince eating Peruvian food and I was really impressed! We dint have reservations, but it was a weekday night & it wasnt very crowded. The food is fantastic, fresh and the service is good. Food came out in time, important as were starving :) Not pricey for what I was told is very authentic Perivian food. I am adding Peruvian food to my Favs list now. They had Seabass prepared in like 40 or more ways :) All the recommendations provided were spot on. Liked the theme & decor! Decent sized portions.

“Decent food, prices and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I had dinner here twice with friends during a recent business trip to Panama City. We didn't have reservations either time, but our group was seated immediately upon arrival. It was fun to try Peruvian dishes, the portions are quite large and the prices are right.

“My Favorite Peruvian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I've been coming here 5-6 times a year since it opened about 10 years ago and am finally getting around to writting a review. There are several new arrivals on the Peruvian restaurant scene in Panama City that are more chic, rated higher than this one, but if you want authentic, fresh and well prepared Peruvian food, this is the place. My favorite dishes are tiradito de corvina (ceviche in strips), anticucho de corazon (marinated beef heart skewers), aji de gallina (chicken in a spicy cream sauce) and pulpo al carbon (grilled octopus). Service is great and the longtime Peruvian owner is usually present to assure things run smoothly. Prices are reasonable.

“Excellent Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

One of the better place in Panama City. Very attentive service. Fresh seafood well prepared. Excellent ceviche. This is a white tablecloth place and not inexpensive, but still, given prices around Panama city, a fair value for very good and somewhat creative food with a Peruvian spin.
