We arrived at the restaurant and wasn't attended to by any of the wait staff. I had to get our menu. The waitress finally showed up and took our order. They then gave us the wrong food. The food we ordered came 5 minutes later...More

We had dinner here twice and loved every meal. The servers were very professional and the presentation was off the charts. The prices were competitive among the finer restaurants in Panama City.

My wife loved the Gnocchi and I loved the fettuccine. The wine selection was good and the service was great. Our server did an excellent job!

We had a great last night in Panama City next door form our hotel. We sat in the garden, service was great and we enjoyed the food. Portions were so big that we couldn't finish them and it was delicious. Prices also acceptable. Very nice...More

I asked if the sea bass was the whole fish and the waitress said no, it's filet. I didn't expect the it to be fried so I was quite disappointed when it arrived. Thin pieces of fried fish accompanied by slightly overcooked spaghetti with too...More
