“Excelent seafood!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This place was actually very good. I heard some comments about the place beeing to expensive, and actually, it is a little bit expensive. Nevertheless I can say that the food is excellent. I would definitley go back and taste some of their marvelous "panamanian style gourmet, seafood"..

“Not quite as good as expected”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

We expected this restaurant to be high end in quality and service. It actually stays in our memory as being the most expensive restaurant we went to in Panama - oh and those rolling chairs to sit in. The decor was different, the waiters were smart, the wine list was big but for us it never quite made it as being a top flight restaurant. The onion soup was not like any onion soup we've had before - a lot of layers to get through to a dribble of soup. Specializing in fish we tried various dishes and they were OK but nothing spectacular. That's how we would sum up this restaurant - OK - we were expecting more for the money

“A little disappointing”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

We went to this restaurant after getting highly recommended statements from other people. The ambience is very nice, and we had a well located table. We ordered the ceviche for an appetizer
and it was just average Then I had the seafood soup which was average too. I had the lobster for dinner and it was, I must say, just average as well, with the lobster having a dry taste, which is not a good thing. It was not a bad meal, it was fairly good, but at the high prices they charge I cannot recommend it highly.

“okay, but not particularly memorable”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Based on a recommendation from some acquaintances, we went to Siete Mares for a bit of a splurge dinner. The experience was not disappointing, but not particularly memorable either. Waiters in tux, and a large waterfall in the middle of the dining room do provide some atmosphere. The food was above average. We might or might not go back.

“Mixed”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

We went with friends to this restaurant that was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. It is a fancy place with wait staff in tuxedos, but our chairs were rolling upholstered office chairs. The wait staff was very attentive.

My husband and I ordered the same dish which was under "The Chef Suggests." While much of the menu had English translations, we had to wing it in this section. Had I known this was not a dish with tomatoes but with sun-dried tomatoes I would have ordered a different selection. The sun-dried tomatoes totally overpowered the delicate flavor of the fish, rather than enhancing it. Our friends were luckier in their selections and were happy with their choices.

We shared a piece chocolate cake for dessert. It was nothing special, okay but not great. They seem to be positioning themselves as an upscale restaurant for special occasions but our menu choices were a mixed experience.
