Description: Las Clementinas Cafe and Bar is an iconic restaurant in Casco Viejo. While the ambiance is distinctively Old Panama, our menu might be described as contemporary Panamanian comfort food. Our highest culinary priority is to use the best local, traditional ingredients we can find while exploring the medley of cultures that have made Panama one of the great cross roads of the world.

The Sunday brunch was delicious. The $29 price is a bit steep, but we enjoyed it very much. The French toast was not your typical preparation, but it had an amazingly delicate flavor and texture. The brie cheese appetizer was pure melt-in-your-mouth delight. After brunch, we took advantage of their golf cart tour of Casco Viejo. The driver/guide was informative and patiet as we stopped often to take pictures, go into the cathedral, shop, etc. This service was complimentary! The gratuity we presented was accepted with warm appreciation.

Thank you so much for your kind review! We really do strive to give good value-for-money with our Brunch. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the food, and our carrito service! It's the best way to get around the Casco, and our driver really is so very informative with our guests. Thank you!

This restaurant is located in a boutique hotel. The outside section of the building has been renovated but they kept the original style of the 60's.

The restaurant is cozy and offers a delicious menu. They offer some outside seating on the patio. In a cool day it's a spectacular experience.

My family and I had dinner on a Saturday night at Las Clementinas, we had not made a reservation but were quickly shown a table. The food is modern with some Panamanian twists, everything was well presented and the service was attentive. We tried a variety of dishes from seafood to beef and everyone was happy with their choices. The only quip I would make is that the portions are bordering on small, after three courses each we were left a bit wanting, slightly larger portion sizes of all dishes would make everything perfect.

I have also dined here for lunch. Again consistently good service and tasty food. I like the fact it is small so noise is not an issue and the restaurant has been decorated in a charming Paris cafe style. Valet parking is also a bonus as the streets of Casco Viejo are narrow and parking is always at a premium. If you want an intimate dinner where the feed is tasty and the service is some of the best to be found in Panama, I would recommend Las Clementinas.

We only went there for a cup of coffee while all was prepared for dinner. The staff was so friendly and even brought some snacks that we were extremely surprised about the hospitality and service mentality of the staff.
Furthermore, we were looking two hours before to find a roof garden or terrace to make nice photos- they offered us to go up in the roof garden, although it was formally not open. We did and enjoyed the sunset and took some nice photos.
So, overall, you can combine a nice service, special environment (they created their tables form the roofs and walls from the old houses) with a great sunset view and -we assume, but did not dine- equally good food.

This place was great, i will defintley come back as soon as I can. My girlfriend took me here for my birhtday, and let me tell you it was the best surprise I recieved during the day. The food was marvelous. Gourmet cousine but with generous portions. The prices range between $12 to $25 dollars a dish so you could consider it a little bit pricey, but it is worth it. The food and service are spectacular!
