MY family and I traveled to Panama to enjoy everything that panama has to offer, but we are very impress with a unique place in RIO Hato which is called The Batea Restaurant. owned By Chef Cris Valencia who has a unique way of making you dream about his plates every day. I love seafood!!!!! but his incredibleble way of designing his flavors makes you break the barriers of traditional what sometimes is consider bizarre. I had his greatest creation His grilled, marinated, caramelized with this sweet heavenly taste cane syrup Octopus over Patacones, That was an Oasis of flavor and taste!!!!!! I also had his delicious, out of this planet Rib seasoned to a grade of flavor hard to describe and please!!!!! his rice with cashew something to die for. And to end your visit please ask for his key lime pie, it will not be the same for you after tasting this delicious dessert. Im back in the States but I definitely will go back and visit this incredible Restaurant, great place, fabulous ambience, clean place and great staff, hopefully you will meet Jorge who will greet you with a smile that will brighten your day and 100% you will fall in love with Chef Cris who has an incredible experience in what he does, who will chat with you with pride and joy about his fusion of flavors in his unique way, sweeping your feet from the ground asking for more. Beautiful country, humble people and most of all extraordinary cuisine. Love the BATEA RESTAURANT!!!!!!!!!! CHECK IT OUT ASSAP!!!!! You will be enchanted for ever.
