Ate here twice, dinner and lunch. Open-air, breezy, nothing fancy. But the food is delicious. Service is great, too.

This restaurant is average. A lot of people like it but I was not impressed. It is an outdoor covered restaurant and it was hard to eat in the Panama heat. Even though there are fans there is no air conditioning. I gave it a 3 because my family seemed to enjoy their food much more than I did. I... More

We liked the restaurant a lot. They have good choice of delicious food. We had a habit being in Amador to stop there. But two last visits were ruined due to lack of attention from waiters. The last time we were waiting 25 minutes before we got water and I even had to ask for menus. After waiting for long... More

We arrived into Panama after 8pm and left the airport after 9pm. It took us about 20 mins to get to the hotel but the hotel kept us back because their check in procedure and line was loooooooooooooooooooooooooong. Eventually we left and we wanted to go to an authentic Panamanian Resturant so my husband can get a "taste of panama"... More

Had. lunch twice during visit to Panama City, and was not disappointed either time. Good selection of local foods, especially seafoods. Great views on causeway and open air environment under shelter if (when) it rains

Prices are average but the food is amazing. Everything you can think of especially typical Panamanian foods. Everyone said the lemonade tasted weird and thats because they use a brown sugar they call raspadura. Once again ignore the negative comments. Folks just dont do their homework or read their history. Anyhow, hands down one of my favorite restaurants in all... More

We stopped here for lunch during a tour of the city. Great food. Good view of the city if you look over or through the construction fence. I had grilled chicken. My husband had grilled fish with garlic sauce. Both were delicious. I would gladly return.

The views on the causeway are ruined at the moment because of the construction but the food here was very good. The prices were average as well. The service was good and they had wifi which is great if your a tourist trying to get a ride back! Ubers most likely aren't going to be an option but they're plenty... More

We had lunch here after visiting the Amador Causeway. We had fish and mussels. Both was fresh and delicious. The lemonade tasted weird, don't know what kind of taste that was :)
