I've been coming here 5-6 times a year since it opened about 10 years ago and am finally getting around to writting a review. There are several new arrivals on the Peruvian restaurant scene in Panama City that are more chic, rated higher than this one, but if you want authentic, fresh and well prepared Peruvian food, this is the place. My favorite dishes are tiradito de corvina (ceviche in strips), anticucho de corazon (marinated beef heart skewers), aji de gallina (chicken in a spicy cream sauce) and pulpo al carbon (grilled octopus). Service is great and the longtime Peruvian owner is usually present to assure things run smoothly. Prices are reasonable.

One of the better place in Panama City. Very attentive service. Fresh seafood well prepared. Excellent ceviche. This is a white tablecloth place and not inexpensive, but still, given prices around Panama city, a fair value for very good and somewhat creative food with a Peruvian spin.

Just ate there yesterday. The place is simple and prices are relatively low, Sea Bass was fine. Waiters are just plain and simple. Parking is very difficult.

Service was very attentive, very large menu. Large portions. The Calamari appetizer was the toughest I have ever experienced. It was like chewing leather. Every thing else was great.
