“One of the best meals we've ever had anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Outstanding dining experience. The extensive menu had options I've never seen in a US kosher restaurant, and everything we tried was terrific. The service was great and the prices were very reasonable. Nicely decorated as well.

“Popular and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2009

Clearly the most attractive kosher restaurant in Panama, and they have the awards to prove it. A 2-level windowed restaurant across the avenue from the waterfront, with an extensive and eclectic fish/dairy/pasta/salad/dessert menu in Spanish and English! Service is good. Portions are generous. Prices are moderate. Owners are gracious.

“First meal in Panama City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2008

We just stumbled upon Darna by accident and were pleasantly surprised...menu limited to tuna, corvina, salmon and pasta dishes prepared quite inventively...mediocre wine list...lots of families dining which puzzled us considering fusion menu until we figured out was a kosher restaurant
