“just average”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

Panama is bursting with restaurants, as this was ranked #3 in the city I was expecting something much more special. It was not. The food was boring and unimaginative. My ribs were dry, my wife's arroz con coco was dry and when she asked for butter for the rice she never got it. The waitress admitted that she had forgotten the request. Though it was Thursday, there was no live Jazz as advertised.

We would have done better at the local bennigan's.

“Great burgers!”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Lovely outdoor patio. Went on a Thursday night when they had a great jazz duo. Can choose between 2 sizes of burgers - the small was big enough.

“Good enough to go back...”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Great wine list and good service. Portions were reasonable and the shrimp were fresh. Appetizers were also good. Hard to find but near enough to some hotels in the area. Near the Multiplex mall....

“Really good restaurant, but ...”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

This is a tough one to review. The food here is great - fresh, creative and well prepared. The service was excellent. The space is very pleasant - modern but comfortable with good jazz at just the right level in the background. I really wanted to love this place. The drawbacks? 1. It's really hard to find - the address is "Paitilla Mall" so everyone at our hotel and our first taxi driver assumed it was the "Paitilla Multiplaza". Wrong. We ended up having to call the restaurant and hand our phone to our second driver so he could get directions. 2. Because of its location it was fairly empty (on a Friday night) and there was nothing to do afterward but get into another cab to get back to the more lively parts of the city. 3. We went there on our last night in Panama based on its rank as the #2 rated restaurant on tripadvisor with expectations that it didn't quite meet.

To be fair, I should mention that they also have a large deck for outdoor seating so it's possible that there are times when it's busy and energetic (I hope so - it certainly deserves to be successful). That just wasn't our experience.

So ... I would recommend it as a place for a really great meal in a very pleasant setting. But be prepared to arrive at what appears to be the bright spot in an otherwise unremarkable quasi-suburban strip mall.

“Delightful”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

A bit difficult to find and parking atrocious, but food was quite good, service attentive, and the interior delightful.
