I’ve had breakfast a couple of times here, and now several dinners. The food is good quality, fresh and there is plenty of it!! The hosts are a a lovely couple, who clearly know their clientele well. The menu is large, with special theme nights...during the week. A lovely outdoor pizza oven, bar and open area makes trivia nights a laugh and there are always plenty of takers!! A really enjoyable restaurant, a bit of a favourite!!More

We visited The Picasso a number of times on our stay in Playa Coronado. They do a great job as far as creating a social hub in the area as there really isn't anything else for restaurants close by with the exception of Luna Rosa....It's a pub style atmosphere with happy hour, trivia night and live music on the weekends. The staff are pleasant. The food in my opinion is average at best and over priced but then again if you're one of the only restaurants near the beach you can charge whatever you like!More

We each had eggs bennie, mine with smoked salmon and capers and his traditional with ham. Service was excellent, the eggs cooked perfectly and hollandaise also perfection. We also purchased some beautiful french important camembert "to go" (owners are French and lovely folks). We frequent...this friendly bar / restaurant but are not big breakfast eaters, I think that will change after today! :) Great job guys, thanks/gracias!More

We visited The Picasso a number of times during our most recent stay in Playa Coronado and enjoyed the experience hugely. It’s particularly popular with the large North American ex-pat community but also among Panamanians and the few Northern European vagrants who fly in to...avoid the worst of the winter at home. The Picasso is very much a focus for the local community, hosting lots of events; Happy Hour and the Saturday evening live music sessions being particularly busy times. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food’s good. If you are looking for haute cuisine you’re in the wrong country but The Picasso serves the local favourite of sea bass in a number of ways, all of which are really good. Its burgers, chicken and steaks are also worth a try. We didn’t have a pizza but will next time we visit. At the busiest times you may have to wait a bit for your food but outside of these service is pretty quick. Weekend breakfasts are great but definitely fall under the description of a busy time so enjoy the coffee, relax and have a chat. Overall, The Picasso has a great ambience, good food and lots of events to enjoy. A word of warning though; if you speak European English ‘sauvignon blanc’ is best replaced by ‘sauvignon white’ and you’ll need to replace the ‘tt’ sound in bottle with ‘dd’, (bottle = boddle), otherwise no one will understand what you’re ordering.More

Don’t come if you are hungry. This is a bar, not a restaurant. We arrived at 6:09 tonight. Over an hour has passed and there is no sign of any food. In fact, the place is packed and I can’t see anyone else eating either....Happy hour ends at 8 so perhaps that is the best time to come. By then I will have fainted with hunger. I sure hope the bass is worth it.More

I totally agree with the previous two reviews, the smoking is a HUGE issue. I felt sick to my stomach after leaving the restaurant. Not a good experience!

The food here is generally very good and the atmosphere is fun! But they gotta do something about the smokers who light up right in the restaurant beside people who are eating. Tonight I had a major headache by the time I left and felt...like I had eaten a box of cigarettes. This is NOT acceptable in today's world.More

Generally a great place, but seems to be a bit of hit or miss lately. Tonight, four meals were ordered at the same time. Three meals arrived in a reasonable length of time, however, the fourth meal was now where be seen. After pointing out...to the server, 5 to 7 minutes later that we were waiting for the last meal, we were informed it would be 2 more minutes. After another 10 minutes, we told the owner that we were still waiting for the last meal, again told it would be 2 minutes (that seems to be the canned answer). The last meal arrived after all the other patrons finished their meals. To top it all off, there were a number of people smoking while others were eating, not a good experience to say the least.More

If you are a visiting the Coronado area be sure and attend one or more of the events at Picasso. They are a community hub! There is gringo happy hour on Wednesday, trivia night and open mic on Thursdays and various live music events on...Friday and Saturday. They host a community market on Tuesday mornings. Great breakfasts, pizza, salads and seafood.More

Picasso Is not an B&B. Look at the Gaviota Resort at Coronado( is old but by the water... beach front)You will need a car.
