Couldn't have asked for a better meal! Great service and scenery to match, went on a Monday night so no crowds. Food was prepared with care and plentiful! Will definitely make the drive back out when I return! My one and only criticism would be...the menu is a little tough to read, especially in the evenings. (Small print). Other wise 5 stars all the way around!More

This, as I've said b4, is my fav in the top of the line restaurants in Panamá. This trip they did not disappoint. My lobster was as good as I expect; service is always good. My girlfriend also enjoyed her meal.

Went with 9 ppl for lunch and everything was SUB-PAR. The coconut rice had no coconut, the medium steak was well done, the ceviche tasted off, the pizza crust was ridiculously thick, and the pasta gummy. The service was ridiculously slow: 30 min to take...our orders, 40 min to bring the food, and 20+ minutes to get the check once we asked for it. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!More

We had dinner at this restaurant one evening while staying at a nearby hotel. The food was good. Typical dishes of Panama. It was not busy the night we went but we did notice a wait to get in over the weekend, so it must...be popular. The atmosphere is nice and you can sit looking out toward the city or towards the back looking at the marina.More

Decor is absolutely stunning! It’s very easy to spend a good few hours here relaxing with some beers and friends. Lots of fans which keep you cool and service was good. Food took a little while and was hit and miss. We got a sharing...platter and some of it was amazing (steak, chicken, plantain); the fish on the other hand was over cooked and dry. Flavour was great though and reasonably priced.More

This is a great place to visit while walking the Amador Causeway. Perfect for special ocassions and the best option for seafood in the area. I recommend booking a reservation with time ahead, to make sure you find a place. Service is great, attentive and...very kind since the very first moment. The place is beautiful, can’t wait to go back!More

Told him we had a reservation and he acted as though he didn’t know what was going on. Decided to just leave. Really wanted to try this restaurant.More

This is perhaps my fav restaurant in the country of Panama, where I order lobster, and this trip was very disappointing. The lobster was not tasty as in the past. My girlfriend had the clams, and arañitas, which were not as she's accustomed. My margarita...was not up to par either. The service, however, was as good as always.More

We were dropped at this restaurant by the hop on hop of bus for a lunch. We had two drinks for free and the food was good, but the portions were half of what they should be, contrary to the bill which was more than...it should be ... I do not really recommend to go there.

Restaurant is nice. It is what you can expect. Just some things can be a little bit better. If you do not speak English - fine. But teach them a little bit. Salmon is nice. But not just salmon. Just bring in some other items...on the side as well. Create a bit more flavor. Issues with the bill. I do not want to give a certain percentage the restaurant wants. I want to say 100, 150 or whatever. Now there is an endless counting back and forth.More
