The food was beyond amazing, but the server was not good. The only time he ven smiled at us an was very attentive was when the tip portion of our lunch came by! Also, the restroom was not clean. But the food was beyond good! Bet peruvean food in Panama!

Hidden in the district of San Francisco this spot is a gem. The ceviche is excellent, the appetizer portion is very large - comes with three different variations - strongly recommend it. We enjoyed a seafood soup, fish and meat dishes and one desert with 3 forks - all excellent.
Make sure you make reservations, this place is packed by 8pm. It's not easy to find on a side street - valet is a bit of a gong show but hey...it's Panama.
Some beers, a few Abuelo rums 3 mains and 3 appetizers $180 with tip a bit on the pricy side but worth it.

Looking, as always, for good food, we decided to try Segundo Muelle. Not hard to find, until the last left turn.... on a very small residential street very very close to Multi Plaza (for non Panamanians, the nicest mall in the City).
Luckily there is valet parking, as the parking in the area is very scarce.
A bit disappointed when going in as it is like warehouse with fancy tables. Not a place to go for a romantic dinner, but ok for friends, business meetings (so noisy people around you will not know what you are talking about).
Everyone's recommendation of the trio de ceviche was perfect. We have been hanging around in South America for a while now, and this was delightful. Even the non ceviche lovers loved this plate. The serving is very big, and is obvious with the price of this entre..... but the value and quantity is there, so go for it.
For the main courses, they were good, but we have had better.... Tuna steak, risotto and a Peruvian Paella was what we ordered.... Tuna steak was good, but a bit over cooked, risotto excellent and the Peruvian Paella was ok.
A place to definately try... but there are better.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Segundo Muelle. The service was very good and pleasant. The food that we had was also very good. There was no problem getting a reservation even though the place is very popular. Thank goodness for valet parking. We had a shared appetizer, entrees, deserts for each of us, and a bottle of wine. The slightly under $100 bill (with tip) was not unreasonable. We will certainly go back. I would put it at the top of the Peruvian restaurants that I've tried.

I was excited to finally try the celebrated Segundo Muelle so I made a reservation for two couples of friends and myself. The service over the phone was perfect and I got my reservation fast and politely.
The restaurant is located in a small street and, from the outside, looks simple yet cosy.
We ordered a Ceviche de Corvina and Wantones Mixto for starters, both of them were very good. The Cusqueña beer was the perfect combination for it. The staff, however, lacked attention and we had to call for the waiter a couple of times. He was not helpful to give suggestions for the main dishes either.
For main course I ordered the classic Lomo Saltado, which was good but not the best one I have tried.
Bottom line: the restaurant is good but it takes a ride in the excellent Peruvian cuisine to raise above the others: it’s good because it’s a Peruvian Restaurant. Compared to other Peruvians I’d say it’s below average. The noisy and bright ambience and the salty bill don’t help at all.
