“Decent food, prices and service”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

I had dinner here twice with friends during a recent business trip to Panama City. We didn't have reservations either time, but our group was seated immediately upon arrival. It was fun to try Peruvian dishes, the portions are quite large and the prices are right.

“My Favorite Peruvian Restaurant”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

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.

“Excellent Seafood”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

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.

“Good food, so so service”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

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.
