“Romantique and tasty”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

The place is hard to find because the restaurant is only open at night, but it has to be earned.
Had the impression of being part of a small circle of Gourmet.
Stylish ambience, decorated with taste.
The chef is Italian and the food is excellent.
Worth a visit

“Hide & Seek”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Panama is a pain with poor street signage, no numbers etc, but Le Chesa takes it to another level. No signage whatesover and you have no idea whether you are at the correct place until you ask one of the waiters. So after a frustrating 20 min trying to find this place, we finally arrived.

Started with the frito misto (not bad/not great), tortellini followed (dry under cooked pasta is not my liking), Covina (quite nice)>

Service was good by Panamanian standards, decor is good.

Overall not worst in Panama, but certainly not near the top.

“One of the better restaurants of Panama City”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Nice place with good food. I like the prix fixe concept and although choice is limited, they have great options per course. Intimate atmosphere. For me one of the better restaurants in Panama City.

“Great Atmosphere and food”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

I have eaten at La Chesa many times and have never been disappointed. The garden in front is a serene and beautiful place to start the evening with a glass of prosecco. The decor of the dining rooms shows such attention to detail and it's like being in a private home. The food is always great, from the appetizers to the super rich desserts which are all part of the prix fixe dinners. I would recommend it to anyone, but you do need a reservation and it isn't easy to see from the street since it sits back behind a stone wall and parking area.
