Not impressive, but honest seafood in town. Very extensive menu, nice wine list, friendly service, the price and value on par and most important: very fresh seafood. Recommended.

We visited on a Sunday with a group of 5 people. Service was slow and inconsistent. Appetizers got to the table before the drinks. We ordered Lobster and it was actually still attached to the shell something surprising for a fine dinning restaurant. Food was good but not great. We ordered the four Leche dessert and the server had to... More

This is a unique restaurant. You mustn't miss it if you visit Panama City. The seafood appetizers were delicious and they have the best crab and lobster outside of New England. Also, the selection of wines is extraordinary, with some rare Spanish white wines.

This is really a good seafood restaurant in Panama city center area! The interior is elegantly designed and decorated. The seafood was very fresh, even fresher than sea food served in the Fish Market. The food was undoubtedly great but the service was not desirable. When we asked for bill, we found 10% service charge was already silently charged. The... More

Fancy restaurant with surprising reasonable prices on the food. The drinks are measured and not worth the price, though. I had a fresh grouper filet with roasted garlic which was delicious. The bread is hot and really good. Service is average. But the atmosphere is great and you feel like you are in a top notch place, which it actually... More
