“Great beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Stayed in Panama for a few months early this year. Looked for somewhere that sold great dark beer and Ran Dorada was just the greatest place. four different types of home made beer. my favourite the Porter, a great dark beer. Best to get there in Happy Hour as Its half price or two for one and a great place to have a couple of beers before yr next destination. Great service nice place, air conditioning if you want or you can sit outside, but it's by the road. Highly recommended but sometimes they don't have all the beers available but don't worry they are all good.

“Excellent pizza and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Went for lunch and had one of the best vegitarian pizzas of my life, so good that I am going back tomorrow for the meat option. Then there is the beer whixh is a wonderful experience after months of local beer. The belgian style beer has a delicious fresh lemon flavor and I had to stop my self from downing it in one go. The IPA was also delicious with a nice bitter aftertaste. Strongly recomend anyone who visits panama city to check this place out. Oh and from 12.00-18.00 its 2 for 1 beer!

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

La Rana Dorada is clean and comfortable, albeit fairly small. There were 4 of their specialty beers offered, from a light wheat (4%) to a bitier IPA (5%). We tried them all and all were fairly good. Perhaps being from a major microbrew city, we're a little beer snobby (even though I'm not the biggest beer fan), but I do strongly agree that it's nice to have something else besides the very light beers of Panama. If I cared that much about beer, I would definitely return, but I don't, so probably won't. Didn't try the food, so no thoughts on that. Had a t.v., bathroom was fine, bartender was a nice guy. Beers pricier than you'll find elsewhere ($17 for 3 beers, tip and tax included).

“Yummy beer and pizza !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

A bit pricey but for very good quality, so it's really fair. The home made beer is excellent and gives a nice change from the Balboa you find elsewhere. Food is also very good and well done. We love la Rana Dorada !
