This place on main street is owned by a great chef . From there he has some great specials and the food is excellent. The back yard patio is the place to hang with friends forr cold beers. Make sure you stop in often

Extensive menu, food was good and fresh. Friendly and fast service. Good atmosphere although it needs some landscaping work. Pleasant surprise in this small town.

Sitting on the back deck with Margaritas, good food, and live music. Down home sort of place with a lot of expat Americans and locals. Very friendly staff and fellow diners. American and Panamanian food. Will go back on my next trip.
