This place has very good mix of seafood and Panamanian food. Great views of the water and nice sets of walking paths and shops nearby on the causeway.

If you have a hankering for typical Panamanian food and seafood, this is a good place to go. Visited by mariners and local Panamanians alike, it is a hot spot on the weekends.

My sauteed squid was very good as was my husband's octopus. My parents thought the corvina was a little salty. The best dishes, however, were ordered by my kids--the shrimp here are excellent. And unlike the U.S. you get more than 6 on your plate. My kids got about 20+ large shrimp for a very reasonable price, and they were fresh and delicious...another reason to save the mangroves of Panama!

Great outdoor seating with views of ocean and Panama City. Came here for lunch before visiting the Punta Culebra Marine Reserve nearby. Had the octopus which was tender. Good service.

My mother and I accidentally stumbled upon this establishment after walking the causeway. We stopped for dinner. The view of the sun setting and dusk was INDESCRIBABLE! It was so beautiful!!
The food and service were wonderful. The empanadas and homemade-tasting strawberry ice cream are a must! The prices are very affordable.
Tuesdays there is live music. It was so wonderful to listen to live Panamanian music!! This was one of the best parts of my trip and will be shared to all my family. If I return to Panamá City, I am sure to return here for a sunset meal!
