My wife and I had dinner here. We ordered the beef tenderloin and the cobia, which is a solid white fish. All of the food was quite tasty and nicely presented. Portion sizes were not large so it was an average value for the price....More

During a stay at The Bristol, we arrived mid-afternoon and stopped in at Salsipuedes for a late lunch. Our wine choice was not available, so had to try something else. My first choice for an entree, ravioli, wasn’t available, so I went with the agnolotti....More

Nice, quiet bar with friendly staff. The tomato and cheese salad dish was delicious. Overall a good visit, but maybe a bit overpriced (though that might be expected considering the hotel it's in). Free crunchy bar snacks were a plus.

Savor the essence of authentic Panama at Salsipuedes Restaurant, the marvelous new restaurant located within Bristol Panama hotel. Under the direction of renowned Executive Chef Cuquita Arias de Calvo, Salsipuedes offers a rich showcase of gourmet Panamanian cuisine.The restaurant’s name honors Panama City’s legendary - and sometimes notorious -Salsipuedes Street, which has been a city landmark since 1671. Today, up and down the street, you can find Chinese and Panamanian merchants offering handmade crafts, Panamanian clothing, montunos, hats, books, magazines, school supplies, articles, Jewelry, vegetables, fruits, dishes, pots, pans, medicinal plants, teapots, among other items.In this regard, Salsipuedes Street and Salsipuedes Panama City Restaurant share several traits. Each celebrates the spirit of the Panamanian culture and is as cheerful and spicy as the people themselves.
