This is the second time I've stayed on this hotel, and it's good location, generous rooms and funky decor mean I will happily stay again when next in Panama. The rooftop bar is a good place to hang out, the staff attentive and the drinks relatively reasonably priced

There were many folks eating there! The setting was ok, Not different or better. The food was average. Nothing exceptional either! Location is good and if you are staying in Casco Viejo, walk. Parking can be tight!

Tantalo is a nice restaurant right in the old part of Panama City...very clean, staff at least bi-lingual (Spanish/English), friendly, fast and efficient! Not the biggest menue but all what you need...from starters to vegetarian to grill plater! Not too expensive for Panana City! Atmosphere is a bit loud (music/voices etc) due to the big (but nicely decorated) room/hall...more like... More

Walking around the Old Panama area, and the high temperature forced me to have a break and a drink, there I tried Panamanian beer Balboa for less than $2, however, my surprise was when I paid for a 500 ml bottle of water, won tell the price though I'll mention beer it's cheaper. Other than this, I love its inner... More

Nice place for a drink and a sunset. Also the possibility to have dinner either on the roof or inside. We were helped quickly and with a smile. The food was good and brought to us quickly, even while we were with a large group.

I've come to this place a number of times over the years. The restaurant is solid, and the rooftop bar has unbeatable views. It's usually pretty packed during bar hours. Only drawback is the enormous vultures that perch on surrounding buildings and watch you.

We stayed at Tantalo Hotel over a weekend for a couple's retreat. As indicated in other reviews, the roof bar and neighborhood are loud, but aside from a bit of noise, the property is fantastic. Our room (Geo Orga) was enormous and interestingly decorated with a lovely balcony overlooking the picturesque Casco Viejo streets. The room and bathroom were impeccably... More
