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 food. Within walking distance of the Hilton Panama and several other downtown hotels. Greeted with a glass of champagne and an small appetizer. The lasagna and spare ribs were fantastic and the desserts were delicious. Great atmosphere.

I've eaten here a couple of times over the last three years and they always deliver a good meal, with fresh, well presented seafood. Their wine selection is also decent. It's good for both business and romantic dinners. Though the outside of the restaurant doesn't inspire much, neither does the neighborhood of tall buildings, the inside is somewhat cozy. Service...

I had lunch at La Posta in July during my first visit to Panama and had such a great time that I decided to bring my team here during our August training event. As other review suggest, it's perfect for business events. Elegant, great options, excellent service. I had the corvina in banana leaves and loved it. Looking forward to... More

This restaurant is a very good choice when in Panama. The ambiance is warm and service is always solid. Most of the entrees were delicious.

Outstanding venue for a business dinner or a romantic evening. Unpretentious decor, located in a beautifully renovated home off Calle Uruguay near hotels and the banking district. The menu and preparation is international and world-class. Short wine list could be improved, but moderate prices and excellent service prevail. I entertain frequently and this place never fails to impress.

Food here is out of this world, great atmosphere, super friendly staff, great wines at a good price and by far some of the best food in town. Seafood and steaks are great, servers are very very friendly and go out of their way to make for an enjoyable experience.

I frequently eat at La Posta and never hesitate to recommend it to everyone. The food is excellent and so is the service. As soon as you sit down, you are served a glass of sparkling wine, followed by mini appetizers. The menu ranges from pasta selections to fine cuts of meat, and fresh seafood. Any choice you make will... More

As others have remarked, a warm welcome and a glass of bubbly certainly start things off right. The atmosphere is elegant but relaxed, and the service charming. I had "double bass": the corvina "carpaccio" (really more of a ceviche), and (on the waiters' recommendation), the corvina in white wine sauce. Both were amazingly good.
