This my second visit to Rausch, the first being a few weeks ago, and so I can comment on whether the quality of the restaurant is sustained.
Rausch sits in the basement of the Hotel Esplendor on Ave Samuel Lewis, near via Espana. The décor is simple and understated. The staff, especially the senior staff, are excellent. They arrive when whenever you need them without hovering. Rausch provides some of the best service in Panama City. So many restaurants here are let down by their poor service.
Four of us ate at Rausch on a Saturday night in which the restaurant's trade was steady but not busy. The price for four of us, including drinks, entrees and desserts, was $320 but this included an expensive bottle of champagne. We all agreed Rausch's prices are reasonable.
Most notable was the tuna tartare entrée which everyone loved, and the desserts are uniformly terrific. Try the Rausch special dessert platter at a very reasonable $10 or $11.
Try Rausch. You will be very happy you did.
