The service was very fast and attentive - keep in mind that in Panama in general waiting staff tends to change quite often, but the waitresses were very attentive, had the drinks out in no time, answered every question we had about the food and always had a smile on their face. Caprese empanadas were tasty. The caprese salad couldve... More

Friendly family run restaurant with a great surf atmosphere. Good beef and burgers with vegetarian options as well. Mixed drinks were well put together and a great wine pour! Very reasonably priced.

The owners are really nice and provide great hospitality. The restaurant has a nice vibe. The parrillada was good, and the veal very tasty. The steak and burger were really good Open only for dinner The owner also sells bracelets and other hand-made articles...all of them extremely beautiful!

This Argentinian steakhouse has a great surfer type vibe and the grilled fish and argentinian empanadas were amazing! Love the surf videos too. Highly recommended!

My daughter and I passed a very nice evening here. The restaurant is covered but open to the night air and there's a relaxed vibe. We played cards between courses, while on the next table sat a party that included two bearded guys who looked like Jacks with two girls, one in red and the other in black, who could... More

Los Pibes was a welcoming change from your standard arroz con pollo that seems to be everywhere. The owners are Argentinian and Spanish and have perfected parilla and empanadas to a tee!!! Diego also grills fresh fish that is caught that same day!!! We went two nights in a row it was so good!! The first night we started with... More

Ask for the sangria - it is some of the best. Good food and service. Located on the outside of town, it is close to the beach. Also, they sell handmade jewelry that we liked.

One of the very best places to eat in Santa Catalina. I recommend the steak with pepper, or a hamburger. Grab a beer, or a bottle of wine and enjoy the dinner. It's an open air eatery, and the food is fantastic.

After reading reviews, we went here for the fish, but they were out! Ha. So I had a veggie plate, which was good and different because it was made in the wood oven so it had a nice taste, and my husband had a big burger. If you want burgers and pizza this is probably a good place for that,... More

Had mahi mahi, which was pretty good. Yuca fries weren't very good. It was a tad spendy, but not too bad. There are definitely better places for seafood in the area. People were nice and service was good though.
