“Pleasant experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Our reservation was for 7:30 and when we arrived we were the only people there except for a few large parties. People here tend to eat much later. The food is nothing special but it is well done and is served very hot. I had a cheeseburger because they had run out of both shrimp entrees. Service was good, waiters speak limited English. Be sure to ask for the English menus. This place is located near punta Pacifica. The bar tender called a cab for us to take back to the hotel.

“Formal and relaxed - Yes, it is possible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is one of the best restaurants in town. They offer indoors and outdoors areas.

The restaurant decor is modern and elegant at the same time. Extremely original. If you are looking for formal you will feel good, if you are looking for relaxed ambiance, it's going to work as well.

The menu offers international options with unique mixes. Food is presented in very original dishes in a way that looks extremely delicious. Taste is very good as well as the Chefs mixes local and international ingredients.

Outside sitting is perfect for small groups of friends that are looking for more informal ambiance, smoking is allowed.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The restaurant is delicious. It was a great place to celebrate my 40th with my family. They made kid friendly food to order and we enjoyed gourmet goodness!

“It's Panama so it LOOKS good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

I really WANT to post a good review... This restaurant is fairly new. The decor is lovely. You can either sit inside and be chilled or sit outside and gently perspire in the steamy night. It's up to you. We sat outside. First drinks took QUITE some time but then they speeded up a little. I detest waiting for a drink and I find myself waiting endlessly for a drink in restaurants all over Panama City.
When food and drinks did arrive, they were whipped away the minute anyone layed down a fork or a glass, by a multitude of staff who probably need a bit more training about the importance of providing DRINKS before whipping away not--quite-finished drinks. The food was hit and miss. My crab entree was lovely. My seafood risotto main was average at best and the prawns old.
My advice for you - choose your meal carefully and hang on to your drinks.
