“Great Seafood in a Nice Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner at Ego y Narciso, where we were seated at a table on Bolivar Square. The mixed ceviche was the best we had in Panama--very interesting, varied ingredients and extremely fresh. The octopus entree with the balsamic reduction was delicious as well and our waiter was both attentive and well informed, even though the restaurant was very busy. The Gorgonzola Panna Cotta dessert was outstanding.

“Great location, but very forgettable food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

What is worth about this restaurant is the location. Casco viejo is very charming, and of course you have to seat outside. But the food? Nothing special. A bit pretencious and a bit flavourless. We tried the prociuto tapas, the pork kebabs and the carbonara fettuccine. Again, very forgettable. Maybe you try some other plates and turns out their great. Or maybe just go for a glass of wine and enjoy the surroundings.

“A very nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

First things first; although it might not seems like, this restaurant is a bit expensive but it worth every buck. Due to the size of the restaurant I would advise you to RSVP before you go. Food and drinks were excellent, everything fresh and tasty and my girlfriend and I enjoyed our night out. Highly Recommended.

“Good ceviche”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We like the outdoor seating,reminds us of Europe. We go there in the evening for their delicious ceviches when the construction workers and the government people are gone. Friendly staffs. The drawback, the cars passing by,taxis fishing for passengers but it is normal in the Casco to see all of these.

“Nice outdoor seating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Quick service, but food could improve in quality. For the price 13 USD for a pasta carbonara it could have been served fresher and warmer. Now it was more of the roadcafe quality.
