A very nice restaurant with exceptional sea food selection and great service. I tried their Shrimp Kabab ... was very good. The squid appetizer was very tasty and stuffed with crab meet. For dessert their pecan pie was orgasmic. Highly recommended.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Panama. The seafood soup, breaded corvina, garlic shrimp are all recommended. They even have good desserts. Try the tres leches, flan or pecan pie.

Big restaurant and menu at average suburban quality. Food ok - fish good, pasta ok with slightly tough prawns Side dishes OK and great to see vegetables - rare in South America. Wine drinkable. Service good Not a great spot or a place to do twice but inoffensive food.

Not the first time in this restauraNt and never been betrayed. Business atmosphere where casual elegant is welcome. Fish is outstanding and meat not to be neglected. Decent list of good wines.

I loved the restaurant and the cazuela de pescado. The taste was simply amazing. The restaurant is very elegant and pricey, but I think it is perfect for a special celebration.

We went to La Casa Del Marisco for an early dinner on a Saturday night. We did not have a reservation but it turns out we didn't need one, there were only six tables occupied, including ours. The atmosphere contained varied artwork and large windows exposing the surrounding tropical foliage. The bread was warm and welcomed as we arrived famished.... More

I have eaten here many times mainly because of their excellent grilled octopus. However this place has priced itself now so ridiculous I won't come back. Portions are smaller and prices are higher. Example: shrimp cocktail, 3 shrimp cut into micro pieces for $18,75 Grilled octopus now a smaller portion $19.00 Cheapest salad on the menu is $18.00 I did... More

After checking into our hotel, wanted someplace nearby with good seafood. Had the octopus and calamari starters, was enough to keep us going until dinner. I was particularly happy with the calamari -- whole bodies cooked in garlic.

Service was good, ambiance great. Upmarket seafood with an extensive wine list. Felt that the prices were on the high side.
