“Perfect little spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

After a hot and tired drag around Casco Viejo, we stumbled on this pretty little trattoria. Terrific pizza, truly Italian, tasty Greek salad, lots of cold water, lovely view, excellent service. And inexpensive!

“Great Location and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Panama City's Casco Viejo is becomming noisey and caotic with large numbers of visitors and ongoing restauration. La Rosa is welcomed relief. It's located on the water on a quiet side street
where you dine on excellent food from the attentive husband/wife chef/hostess team. See other revews for food comments. Prices are very reasonable given the location and food quality. Mains in the $15-20 range.

“Great location and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We really enjoyed having dinner at La Rosa de los Vientos. The typical Italian food was excellent, It was very relaxing to have dinner at the beautiful terrace and enjoy the refreshing evening sea breeze. We will definitely come back here and would recommend to anyone.

“Where food is raised to an Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Fabulous food, fabulous location. When dining in Casco Viejo, Panama City, Panama, choices of great restaurants abound. La Rosa has outdoor dining, on the seawall of Panama Bay, catching the evening sea breeze (which is a great thing to catch). But what really sets it apart is the food. Unique preparations and sauces, compliment the chef and he may well come out and talk to you about how he prepares your meal. Try the plank salmon, and the Russian salad is totally different from any potato based salad ever experienced.
Prices are normal for the area.
Like us, you will want to go back and back again.

“Best Italian dinners in all of Panama!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

We took six friends with us to this restaurant and every one of us ordered a different entree. Every morsel of food was outstanding! The owners, a Sardinian man and his Russian wife, and their Panamian staff, made us feel like royality. The restaurant is just around the corner from the church with the gold altar. Do not miss a great dining experience here!
