I didn’t watch the show but we ate dinner and it was pretty good for the price! I had the seabass with langoustine and my bf had the rice and chicken. The yuca croquettes are yummy but u love yuca done any way at all!

Had an ok at this local Panamainan eatery. The food was fairly good yet, for the price, not all that great. There was a show and local music - which made for nice atmosphere. Overall, it was good...not great but good.
