“Great people great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We passed her going into town but when we saw the other options we went back and are glad we did. We had been on the motos all day and were ready to relax with a few drinks and a great meal. Viancka did not disappoint us. The warm friendly staff make you feel like you were a local.
We will be back.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Viancka has great food. If you come to Catalina, be sure and stop b Viancka's. she is super sweet and you food is prepared right after you order it. Be sure and get a drink, relax and enjoy he scenery until your food is served. Everything is fresh and delicious. If you get the fish tacos be sure and ask for her own special hot sauce blend! Yummy!

“Delicious meals every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in Santa Catalina for over a week in total and averaged a meal a day with Viancka during our stay. Her food is delicious! Her restaurant is right on the main road which makes it easy to find at night and her cooking was always on par. For lunch our favorite was ceviche mixto with a side of her yummy coconut rice. It came out to $6 (or around there) and was a great deal for what you got in comparison to other places. For dinner the fish of the day was always fresh and prepared to perfection. I wish I could have bottled her Maracuya (passion fruit) salsa to bring home. On top of it all she was super friendly and attentive to tables. If you're looking for the most authentic Panamanean food in Santa Catalina thats delicious and well prepared stop by and visit Donde Vianka!

“Great Fish Tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Viancka is the most pleasant person we encountered in Santa Catalina. We loved her fish tacos and "duros" - homemade frozen fruit juice.

the personnel was very friendly, we found the food excellent and we spent couple of afternoon after lunch talking and chilling in the "veranda" . I also played football with Viancka's son, and my friend fixed his BMX. the memories are gorgeous. go for a taste!
