We were lucky to find a table for the show, we didn't have reservations. Since we arrived extremely early we had dinner in the general dinning area and then joined the sitting area for the show. Enjoyed the show very much and love the dresses. Food is nothing out of the ordinary, service is great.

The Tinajas restaurante is a great location to soak up some amazing Panamanian food and cultural. The dancing and music was great. The only down-side is having a conversation with your gust. It's so loud during the show, you can't hear the person next to you talk.

I ate at this restaurant when visited Panama City. They have menu in English and the prices were reasonable. Service was good and friendly. Didn't attend the show but saw many people were there.

Wasn't sure what to expect, but the food was great and the show was well done. My daughter got up and danced with the performers at the end of the show. It gave me some cultural context for my visit.

I dined here and saw the show. Food was good and show was fabulous. I got to see the Panamian costume, listen to their music, and take pictures with the cast.

Very good local food. Nice ambient, traditional not fancy. Waiters are seasoned professionals. Will definitely recommend you go there if you are in search of typical Panamenian food.
