We ( traveling with my family) ate here breakfast which was delicious.. Banana pancakes, crepes, cappachino, coffee, juice as well as went back same evening for pizza ( mushrooms with ham) and a pasta carbonara. All was delicious and enjoyable. Joel the waiter was very...attentive. Did not meet the owner. Considering how isolated Santa Catalina is this place was a nice change from standard seafood local fare.More

Absolutely horrible. We were not spoken to, not looked at, we were thrown two sticky plastic menus with the saddest selection ever and when we dared ask the wifi code, the owner was so incredibly rude that we decided to leave the place after giving...him our clear opinion on his total unability to run what he claims to be a restaurant. It is a sad shack with even worse food and an owner who clearly dislikes people and life in general. We have travelled all over and own restaurants ourselves. He is a disgrace to the hospitality business. Oh, and sadly we didnt get the chance to taste their special: pizza with nutella hahaha. Run!More

If you don’t like people, don’t open a restaurant! I do not know why this restaurant is #1 in Santa Catalina... Avoid at all cost!

First night in town, so went to this restaurant as it was closest to the place where we were staying. I had the lime and coconut shrimp dish. It basically was shrimp with sautéed onions and peppers. I had no taste of either the lime...or the coconut. I was disappointed. The person I was with had a huge plant of vegetables and rice as a main course. We tried other places and whill not be returning there. There are other better restaurants in town.More

The rolls here are so very delicious. We had the curry chicken, which comes with salad. The bread is very fresh and tasty. The coffee frappe is good too.

Burger for lunch were just ok. Breakfast was nice, about the same you get everywhere in Panama but the coffee is really good and if you are Lucky there are fresh croissants. Friendly service. English menu.
