“Great Tropical Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Had a lovely meal at La Posta. Particularly enjoyed the plantation style decor and wonderful service, and the food was also very good. My only complaint was that the same song played over and over through our entire visit. It was sung in French, and although I do not speak French, by the time we left I knew every word and heard them in my head for days afterward.

“Fantastic sea bass”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This was one of the best meals we had in Panama. The sea bass was outstanding. And we had good service. Charming atmosphere. It was a little pricy, but the food was so good that made up for it.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The place is nice and quiet with attentive service. Food and atmosphere are .good but the place is clearly designed for Europeans/Americans with a wallet. In my view, very much overprices especially if you're going to have some wine.

“Great dinner at classic Panama City restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We ate here in January 2013 during our trip to Panama to see the canal. The dinner was excellent. I had fish cooked in a bag and it just melted in your mouth. The flat bread placed on each table was so good we went through two baskets of it- even though we were all on a diet. Service was a bit slow but that did not take away from the ambiance (classic Spanish colonial) and the excellence of the food.
