The food and mixed drinks are as good as the hotel, and you just can't beat the hotel. They were celebrating the new highway around Casco Viejo when we were there in early March, and the fireworks were spectacular viewed from the hotel's roof. Las...More

Las Clementinas is in a quaint building in the Casco Viejo. With around a dozen tables (reservation needed!) there is no crowding, and the place has a feel of a classic cafe in Buenos Aires. The food is above average and nicely presented. The problem...More

Description
Las Clementinas Cafe and Bar is an iconic restaurant in Casco Viejo. While the ambiance is distinctively Old Panama, our menu might be described as contemporary Panamanian comfort food. Our highest culinary priority is to use the best local, traditional ingredients we can find while exploring the medley of cultures that have made Panama one of the great cross roads of the world.
