We stopped at this roadside restaurant for lunch and loved our meals. When you go through the entrance, you pass onto a covered deck right on the shore. There is a display of scuba finds- sea life, cannon balls and other interesting memorabilia and a small section of local crafts for sale. Across the water, there are verdant hills with small boats bobbing in front of them. A beautiful setting.

Meals ran around 10 dollars and included a salad and a choice of starch (pantacones, rice, fries). We had a variety of items and all were good. I'd highly recommend the octopus stew and coconut rice that I'd have.

Not fast food- but sit back, relax and enjoy the experience.

Cosy setting, in wooden hut above the sea. Serve seafood, fish, etc.. We walked in evening before for a nice dinner, and saw others eating a delicious looking crab. We asked, and they informed us we should order for next day, so they can make sure they wil have it. Done. Next day's lunch... a feast.
Friendly staff. Good value. I think they didnt accept credit card, only cash or check.
Have a small gift shop with local art & craft.

Los Cañones is a typical panamanian restaurant with tasty & affordable dishes. The location is nice. The only negative thing is the bathroom: falling apart & dirty.

If touring or travelling the Atlantic side by visiting Portobelo or beaching the area, this is a very good place to eat and taste the Afro-Caribbean cuisine which is famous by using mostly coconut milk for cooking...

Is located on the left side of the road (if heading to Portobelo or Isla Grande) or right side (heading back) easily recognizable from the road. "Canones means "Cannons".

The ambiance is very very rustic; an open space terrace seating with bay view (Buena Ventura Bay) and a quaint souvenir shop selling clothes, vases all of Caribbean styles and some like antiques rescued from the ships sank in the area...

The price for the food are very good (seafood), very good quality-ratio-price, very abundant food..... but there is a BUT... opens only for lunchtime and once when ordered the meal prepare to have the patience to wait... takes long time...

They don't accept credit cards so strictly cash...
