After visiting the INAC theater, we decided to have dinner. Since none of the restaurants had empty tables inside, we ended up there (it was the last table). My wife ordered a Causa and I had a corvina, both where grate, the taste was spectacular and you can feel all the ingredients. The place is really cozy, I missed some... More

We'd had dinner at Ego & Narciso 2 years ago, sitting outside on Plaza Bolivar, and had really enjoyed it. Therefore I was glad when my aunt suggested we eat there yesterday (Tuesday). The restaurant was extremely quiet, both outside and inside, where we ended up sitting as it had been a rainy day. By the time we placed our... More

Here is a small restaurant with great taste. Its a Peruvian restaurant with some great dishes. Personally I would order the Fried ceviche for a starter, just one to taste .. then I would get any of the fish of the day .. end with the classic Peruvian dessert with Pisco and dulce de leche, some call it sopa de...

I understand Ego y Narciso is very popular for dinner - with tables outside on Plaza Bolivar. But I ventured in on a very hot day - and took advantage of the air conditioning to eat lunch inside the restaurant. The chef is from Peru and some items do have a Peruvian flair to them. I opted for the Corvina... More

I had a very pleasant dinner, sitting outside in the square. The staff is very helpful and the service efficient. I would strongly recommend fish entries, very well prepared and very tasteful. I also particularly enjoyed the mojitos. I will definitely be back!

I was there last night and really enjoyed it. The food was good, even though the streak tartar has a bit to much mayo for taste. But sitting outside was very nice.

Stopped for lunch and out of half the Starter menu as we wanted a light lunch. Presents bill in an American Express folder, but only takes MC and Visa. Didn't feel wanted at all. Place had one other table full at lunch time. I liked our lunches, but they were expensive at the price. You can do much better in... More

Ego (no local uses the full name) sits quietly on a corner of Bolivar Square in Panama's historic quarter, Casco Viejo - a handful of outside tables, and a few tables inside ringing an L-shaped bar. Nothing in its modest appearance can prepare the first-time visitor for just how good this place is. It looks like a bar that serves... More
