Nice quiet environment and good service. Nice small salads and wonderful sides. My wife really liked the Sangria, Basic wine list with good pricing focusing on wines from Argentina and Chile. Will definitely be back, very reasonable price for the quality of food

We went here for lunch. I ordered the filet mignon which was not really anything resembling filet mignon in the US. I asked for medium rare and it was pretty well done. Not terrible, just not what I was expecting. The ceviche was very tasty (although very salty). I have a huge aversion to cilantro so I was very pleased... More

We stopped at Coronado for lunch and without a doubt went for Don Chacho. The food was amazing as always, but the service has gone down. We wanted to order burgers with patacones instead of fries and they wouldn't even try to ask if they could change it. They don't smile and seem to pay more attention to the customers... More

This was a very nice restaurant. Staff was very friendly and service was good. The Panamanian Chicken and Rice was delicious and so were the beef empanadas. We actually went back the next night and got half a dozen to go!

Food OK.. many servers around, but not looking after you... Poor acoustics, very loud, had a hard time understanding each other. Instead of turning on air conditioners, they opened the doors and more hot air rushed in... not going back for awhile.

We have house guests and bragged about Don Chaco. Before we arrived at the restaurant, we were Skyping with a mutual friend back in the States who raved about the meal they had had with us at Don Chaco back in February. A few minutes later, we arrived at Don Chaco and, thanks to the wood fire, the place smells... More

We rented a vacation home nearby and came to eat here twice. The service during our first visit was a little slow, but hey it's vacation, no need to be in a rush. The food was good though so we came back for dinner one night. The service at dinner was much better. All of the food we tried was... More

We were disappointed with the food and outdoor seating. The flavor of my fish was awful and I ended up having to leave. I'm not a fussy eater either. My husband enjoyed his chicken though. Outside we kept being bothered by feral cats. Our waitress actually stayed outside chasing them away, but they kept returning. Just not a pleasant experience.

Very good grilled meats but also known for a good octopus ceviche. Service is friendly and it has a nice rustic ambiance.

Description
I could not find any reviews for any restaurants at Coronado Beach Panama, This area has many restaurants and more being built as the area is growing. This is also a tourist area and Coronado Beach is on the travel forum. I could not right an address as I could not find one but it is on the main road going into Coronado Beach. Thanks
