I had the hotel make reservations for lunch. When we got there, the place was almost empty except for 3-4 tables. We were promptly escorted to a table with 4 chairs. Right next to it there was this table with chairs and a cushioned booth. We asked if we can be sit here instead and we were told that it... More

Right around the corner (literally) from the Waldorf Astoria Panama. Lovely decor inside, pretty extensive menu. Upscale but not at all pretentious. Henry, the waiter, was the best--not to mention his recommendation to get the banana tart. I wish he could send me some in the United States.

You wil enjoy La Posta for the following reasons: 1) It is not a giant restaurant. It is smaller and has a more cozy feel. It does give the feeling you are in Europe. 2) Candlelight ambience. 3) You are greeted with a glass or Prosecco and a wonderful appetizer finger size eggplant parmesan at your table. 4) The waiters...

Only real complaint was that I wanted more after we had finished. Excellent service, good range of dishes. Price per entree ranges from $17-30, with most on the lower end.

Very good lunch with a wide variety of options. A little deceptive on outside as originally walked right past. The inside/dining area is very charming and quaint. The seafood soup was very good. Would certainly come back.

Wonderful, friendly restaurant in a converted house. They start you with a glass of something sparkling to make you feel welcome, then bring gazpacho and bread. I opted for the corvina, which was fresh and light. Highly recommend!
