The rooftop was very nice. The night view of the city was ok, not breath taking, maybe because it was too far way from the city. We went up there because we heard it was a popular place to party.

We were excited to try it after reading the rave reviews on this site, but this place is definitely not worth 4.5 stars. The food was OK - not great.

Almost left as the menu they gave us was the quick lunches...same as you can get anywhere. The waiter brought us the full menu, so we stayed. We had the grilled plate, which was very flavorful. The margarita was quite interesting, and delicious.

Great tapas like restaurant. Get a couple of items and share. Great fruit drink combinations and where all of the young, well heeled of Panama City hang out. WARNING WARNING--EXTREMELY HIP! However, very friendly,English speaking staff. Take a look at the lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Made from plastic bottle caps!

I had dinner there (pasta) on Friday night at about 7 PM. It was moderately full when I arrived but filled up while I ate. I was solo so ate at a high table near the bar. The food was very good and the service also very good. I enjoyed the avant guarded decor as well. I would recommend this... More
