I went of friend for a late night dinner. We were the last to leave. It is located in a corner of a plaza, hard to locate from the street and behind a fast food restaurant. When we entered there was a group of about 20 people celebrating a birthday. Very noisy for small restaurante. The waiters brought us a... More

Me and a friend went in for lunch, their English wasn't the best, but we managed to get by with my broken Spanish and their broken English. They accommodated our dietary restrictions without a problem, (I'm vegetarian and my friend is gluten and dairy intolerant) the food was amazing and the service was great! Their salsas were out of this... More

We were having a late lunch. Decided on mexican food. Orale used to be a chain of Mexican restaurants (at least in Panama) they were fun, but something must have happened, they're only two left operating. The place was empty.The margaritas were good. The "Nachos de mi abuela" were good. No mexicans were taking care of the place only colombians.... More

Nice place to have a get together with old friends. The staff is good. The place is clean. The Mexican food is normal. I don't drink alcohol beverage at all, but some of my friends do and they told me that the "margaritas" are good.

I love Mexican food and expected a place of this size and location would be good in a city of this size. Mexican runs the gambit but this place was just a step up from Taco Bell. To begin...The staff was great, which we found all over Panama. Since our Spanish is limited, they got three different waiters to help... More

I visited this restaurant twice in August, do you think I like it? Both times I visited with family. My dad is a Margarita snob, it is very hard that he likes a margarita. He loved the margarita from here and my mom did as well. I only order the regular lemon margarita but they have different flavors (melon, passion... More

Orale Tacos offer good Mexican food like tacos, and burritos. They also sell good margs and Mexican beers. We were staying at the Riu located directly downtown Panama City and the restaurant was a 2 minute walk around the corner. Average american prices. $10-$15 per order.

This was our first time visiting Panama. We thought it would be nice to get some Mexican food. The only problem is we spoke only rudimentary Spanish. After some gesturing and some Spanglish we managed to order. We also ordered some water, expecting a glass of water and were brought bottles of water and charged $2 each for it. The... More

My wife and I have been eating out in Panama City, Panama, for over 9 years. We ate at this restaurant a couple years ago, but hadn’t gotten around to returning for another visit. The other night we decided on “Mexican” and reviewed our options, deciding on Ora Le (it’s two words on the website, instead of one as is... More

Good food, festive, and a great ordering/service system. They have a few rolling menu boards, place your order, food arrives....very hot and very flavorful. if you need something else, there is a service button on your table and they come immediately. No one hanging over you like you will find in Panama. I love the decor, the servers, and the... More
