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.

This was my second visit after visiting the original location a few years ago. This is a classy restaurant in a very nice space with excellent food. The seafood was delicious and the wine selection was great.

Upon arrival we received a glass of Prosecco, and in a minute or two later, a small tasty appetizer, both gratis. We ordered a seafood appetizer that was really good. the main courses were ala carte, and we ordered grilled... More

La Posta has been my favorite restaurant in Panama City for about ten years; unfortunately dinner this week was in a tired and now over-rated long-time establishment. My four guests and I had a pleasant but only average culinary experience. Our dishes were all different but had too much of the shared tastes; they arrived on our table hardly warm,... More

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Panama with an amazing ambience and a superb menu. Looking forward to my next meal there when I pass through Panama again.

We were a group of ten, and the restaurant rose to the occasion. The menu is extensive with many pastas, meats, and fish. Our orders were nicely prepared and served.

Right next to the Waldorf Astoria on Calle Uruguay, great seafood appetizer on fried plantain and outstanding Corvina in white wine butter and garlic. And they bring you a glass of champaign when you arrive! A great way to end a long day of business. Very nice ambiance inside!

We were staying at LeMeridien less than one block away and happened to see this place on one of our on-foot exploratory walks in the city. Turns out it was the "find" of our whole vacation! From the minute we walked in, we were immediately greeted/seated with a friendly guy, followed by a glass of champagne, followed by our server... More
