Enter the Selina hostel, hang a left, and take the elevator to the top (or just ask the friendly staff at the front desk like we did). You'll find a spacious, multi-leveled restaurnt/bar with a very cool, young vibe. The location provides one of the...best, if not the best rooftop view in Casco Viejo (5/5). The vegan nachos were absolutely amazing (5/5). They have beans chopped up and flavored in a savory –almost meaty– chili. The vegetable tacos were tasty, but not as out-of-this world as the nachos (4/5). Both had a bit vegan cheese, maybe similar to Violife, un-melted and with out much flavor, but an appreciated addition nonetheless. Service was fast and friendly, but I did have to keep going up the the bar to get waited on (3/5).More

I tried to dine at this place twice. The first time I walked into the downstairs lobby and was treated to the sight of a patron receiving a tattoo. I should have taken this as a sign. I made my way to the rooftop restaurant....The only place the hostess would seat me was in front of a blaring speaker. I really didn't feel welcome, so I left. I really wanted Mexican food, so I decided to give them another chance on a slow afternoon. There is a covered seating area with normal chairs, but the hostess immediately took me away from there to another seating area where there were no other people, and only high chairs. I explained that I have orthopedic issues and can't sit in high chairs, that I need a normal chair. Yeah. She never took me back to the normal chairs, just left me in the high chair area. I walked back to the other area and she just ignored me. Talk about an unwelcome feeling. All the other patrons on both occasion were very young, probably mostly drawn from the hostel this place sits on. I decided they just didn't want someone like me eating there. I will not be giving them a third chance. I will find a Mexican restaurant that wants my business.More

With the help of Trip Advisor we found this small rooftop restaurant and it was excellent. We shared the guacamole first and it was excellent, it was our first guacamole after being in the country for 12 days so that helped too. The 3 tacos...for $10 were great and my boyfriend said his pork belly tacos were they best tacos he had ever eaten.More

...which at three for $10 from the diverse menu are great value for money given the location and quality. The pork belly taco was my particular favourite, but all were very good and quick to reach the table. Good drinks, too. Sunset is the perfect...time to visit, with the heat of the day giving way to the cooler evening temperatures and the Panama cityscape lighting up before your eyes. If you're coming from the centre of Casco Antiguo (Av B.), turn right onto Calle 12 Este, heading downhill, and look for the signs indicating Selina on the left a little way down. Go in, head to the elevator round the back of the bar (on the left), take it up to the rooftop on the 6th floor and voila.More

Great taco place, roof-top terrace views in old town of Panama City. Lots of choices and drinks... there’s a pool too!

Good place to enjoy a few drinks and eat some guacamole and street style tacos. It's kind of hard to find as it is on the top floor of a building containing a tattoo parlor and a hostel. Don't let that scare you as the...views, food and drink are all equally great!More

Fun atmosphere, great tacos, bar, and a rooftop pool in Casco Viejo...what more do you really need anyway?

Great tacos including veg options, beautiful rooftop venue (go when the weather is nice), and great drinks (try the passion fruit mojito)!

We were very disappointed that a lot of items on the menu was unavailable. The food was great though. The place was a little hard to find.
