Review of Don Chacho Grill

Don Chacho Grill
Cuisines: Latin
Description: I could not find any reviews for any restaurants at Coronado Beach Panama, This area has many restaurants and more being built as the area is growing. This is also a tourist area and Coronado Beach is on the travel forum. I could not right an address as I could not find one but it is on the main road going into Coronado Beach. Thanks

It's been over a year since my last hesitant review - have returned a few times since but no more. Why? overpriced plain and simple. The portions have gotten smaller - one of the few restaurants that serve a la carte - paying $12 for a whole chicken (when they have them ready) - no side - not even a little lettuce leaf and slice of tomato ( a common 'garnish' around here - LOL) - $2 for a mound of plain, uninspired white rice. Honestly compared to other similiar styled restaurants in the beaches - at this higher price point for all your offerings at least throw in some rice, papas or ensalada - really! Finally $5.50 for a glass of wine - nope not going there. Chao

went to Don Chacho's because so many people wrote it was good
found out it was before the renovations but not now
portions were small and over priced
ordered a whole chicken and received a whole chicken minus the breast also ordered the grilled mixed veg. turned out to be grilled eagplant and grilled celery not very tastey
service was terrible asked for a glass of white wine the responce was we have none cold turned and left ( we should have too )
when it came to getting our bill we had to flag down another waitress so she could find our waiter and get the bill
would I recommend this place NO
would I go back NO

We stopped here for lunch and the food and sangria were wonderful. The service was good and the atmosphere made you feel comfortable and not rushed. I would definitely go back.

We are always on the look out for a great national steak here in Panama. "They say it can't be found". I was excited to hear that the Don Chacho Grill could be it. No brass ring yet. Yes, nice ambiance, good service, food - very average. Has to be more than average to make me want to return and recommend to others. Adding a few interesting menu items such as a variety of grilled vegetables, using more flavorful saucings and most of all, buying better cuts of local meat would help.... If I can buy a national beef filet in El Rey and grill it up on my own little BBQ and it comes out tender and juicy and flavorful, so can a restaurant that calls itself a Grill. We must continue the steak hunt here on the Pacific Coast of Panama so we don't have to drive to Martin Fierro's in Panama City as much.......

While recently visiting Coronado, we had dinner at Don Chacho Grill. I ordered the arroz con mariscos, and my family ordered the corvnia al limon. Our food was just excellent, and we enjoyed a nice glass of sangria with it. Kudos to the Chef Vicente Valdez for an excellent meal!
