We would order it several different styles and each one was delicious. With patacones and platanos on the... read more

We loved this restaurant and the staff and owners were so friendly even though they didn't speak much English and our Spanish was very limited. The food was excellent and the price was good. Very enjoyable.

Our Tour guide tipped us off that this was a real local place that served good food at a good price. She was right! We were happy with the meal, the service, and the atmosphere.

This place is known to have some of the best ceviche in the area. The food was very good. The staff does not speak too much english so be prepared to practice your spanish.

Nothing fancy, no frills but basic Panamanian food. Mainly locals, TV blaring like many traditional eateries. Rice and shrimp dish was bland but fish with herbs was quite delicious.

They have a very good food, specially the fish, but the place is hot and many flies around. There are not many parking spots, but can park around.
