We live in Panama and were excited to hear about this place. The view from the bar when you first enter is great and I would highly recommend at least going for a drink in the evening to enjoy the deck. The décor inside is very well done and I love that they incorporated some of the original building into their plan. Service was maybe a tad bit over average - until dessert, when we were just forgotten about. We felt it was pricey and the menu leaves a lot to be desired. A lot of fish or beef, but nothing really in between. I ended up ordering the mushroom ravioli - $18 for 3! While extremely tasty, it was highly over-priced, especially since it is actually meant to be an appetizer. My husband was happy with his steak although I didn't care for it. Our table's food was all cold when it came out. When we mentioned this to the waitress, she said she could heat it up in the microwave. Perhaps more attention to bringing out the food when it's ready would be more appropriate. We are undecided on whether or not we will return to eat. We will probably go back for drinks, but I think better value and quality can be found elsewhere as far as food goes.
