“Chill and lunch on the Caribbean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

We always stop here for a late lunch when we take guests to Portobelo and do the Panama Outdoor Adventures zip line. It's a relaxing conclusion to fun day. We love to sit in the garden bohios and enjoy the breeze and water (you can swim here). The food is always fresh, hot, and delicious. Especially love the clams, octopus, and corvina entera. I've heard the ginger crab is good, too...and the beer IS cold.

“Great value and fun decor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

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.

“Wonderful Crab”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

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.

“Great food & Value for Price But Miserable Bathroom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

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.
