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.

The family owning this local place was very friendly and prepared a meal for our eleven-person family in half an hour. The fish was fresh and tasty. A very... More

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.

The food is average at best. They were out of all fish except for amberjack and whole fried corvina. There were no potatoes, fries, or salad available. I ordered the clam appetizer. It was good. Everything Else was so-so, and not inexpensive by Panamanian standards.

All of the dishes we had here were excellent. The seafood was very fresh. It seems to be a very local place. They have a menu in English as well. And the passionfruit juice was delicious!
