Description: Las Clementinas Cafe and Bar is an iconic restaurant in Casco Viejo. While the ambiance is distinctively Old Panama, our menu might be described as contemporary Panamanian comfort food. Our highest culinary priority is to use the best local, traditional ingredients we can find while exploring the medley of cultures that have made Panama one of the great cross roads of the world.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We ate here on a Friday night - 8 people without reservations; however, the manager did everything he could to squeeze us in. Absolutely wonderful outside atmosphere and excellent food. highly recommend the chicken wings as a appetizer.

“Absolutely phenomenal!! A must try when in Panama city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Las Clementinas! I ate here last week when on vacation and we have been talking about it ever since. The location in Casco Viejo was perfect and the interiour was reflective of the old world style found througout the area. The food was amazing! All six of us had great meals from start to finish. I highly recommend the double cut pork chop with yucca, marinated tomatoes and the sauce was from heaven. The shrimp and corn fritters were so good we ordered more and more until we were almost too full for dessert. Which was also a delicious. Although the tres leche was slightly dry the caramel flan and chocolate dessert finished with perfection. Perfect service and very affordable considering the level of food and service! Please go! You will not be let down.

“Great Food Great Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

I just ate here with 6 of my other friends. We ordered almost everything on the menu between us. The Shrimp and Corn Fritters appetizer was great we ordered 4 of them. We had three bottles of wine two red and one white and I ate the sea bass with jasmine rice it was amazing. I tried a bite of the pork chop and it was even better and I was wishing I ordered it. To cap it off I had an amazing double cappuccino and four deserts, two tres Leche's a chocolate cake and one other lemon tarte thing. Tres Leche was a little different then what I was used to but the chocolate cake and cinnamon ice cream was excellent. All in all and amazing dinner, I would go back there and I highly recommend checking it out!

“Sweet boutique restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

In the middle of Casco Viejo outside of Panama City. Great service, very clean and posh rest rooms (sign of clean kitchen), air conditioned. It is next to local police station. Food is fun and well prepared.

“A nice birthday celebration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Having had disastrous celebrations of my husband's birthday the last two years, we were a little skeptical about this year's selection of Las Clementinas. However, the evening went beautifully. The valet parking made it possible to go to Casco Viejo. The service was excellent, everyone was very pleasant and friendly, we had a very nice chat with the young woman who may have been the hostess. The food was very good. I enjoyed the seafood risotto and my husband raved about the corvina. We had a pleasant bottle of wine. All in all, quite a success.

We could not be more pleased that your husband's birthday celebration was a success! We try to make our service special every day, but if we do know it's a special occasion we definitely endeavor to go all out and make it memorable for the person. We're so pleased you had a nice time!
