“View first, then food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

After much deliberation I went with the pescado entero: an entire fish on your plate with fries and an orange slice. Fish was great. Fries were OK. My wife had the fried platanos on her plate and those were better than my fries for sure.

The standout here, though, above the food, is the view. It's just a cool atmosphere to be eating outside with a great view of Chitré and the Pacific Ocean.

Some locals say this place is expensive. Making the comparison from their perspective I'm sure that is. But if you make the comparison coming from the US this place will seem cheap. Whole fish for $6. Local beers for $1. Our family of 3 ate diner for $17.50 before tip.

“The Majesty Mirador”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Arrived in the late evening and the PAcific Ocean was still in view.Its alittle cooler there, pines trees are thriving at this elevation. At dusk, the twinkling lights of Chitre became more obvious and the restaurant Mirador started filling up with locales.
The prices are not bad:Sodas,beers are 75 centavos.
Lobster about $15,
Quarter chicken with a light salad and fries $5.00 and lots of other seafoods too.
I highly recommend this place!

“Good seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

Last time I was at the El Mirador, I ordered fry fish and patacones (friend green plantain) and the fish was HUGE! here in the US I had paid over $15.00 dollars for a smaller platter of the same thing and in Chitre, I only paid $3.00 dollars. We were a party of 6 people and including the beers (20 total) we only paid less than $30.00 dollars for everything. Once you get to know the locals they'll treat you with lot's of love and respect, that is if you do the same.
