This was the only restaurant open at 10 pm and it was highly recommended by the police officers around the old theater. The food was delicious and the customer service was great. It's a shame a missed the show, but at least I didn't go to bed with an empty belly. The owner also helped us call a taxi, which... More

A pleasant comfortable meal, with fluent-English speakers to help select menu items, choose sauces and such. Satisfying, not fancy, not expensive.

This is a touristic restaurant but it gives you a nice ambiance with all the diablicos sucos, traditional meals, and music and dances in the evening. Though for tourists, this is a must-do in the old town.

The owner Juan geilo and his staff especially (our waiter) made us feel like family and we're extremely hospitable and fun. Best Panamanian food by far! We loved it so much, we are here two days in a row 😃 don't miss the dance entertainers on the weekends 💃🏽

Diablicos is a typical Panamanian food restaurant which deserves to be visited. I was there twice. the first time, I ate pasta with cheese and banana sauce, which was delicious. The second time, I ate the famous Ropa Vieja, which is really tasty. The place is greatly decorated and the waiters are nice and helpful. It is a pity it... More
