“Wow.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Not much more needs to be said. I have had an awesome evening with good friends at Rausch.
The food was stunning, the ambience was really nice and the service was terrific.
The only thing that could be improved upon is the time it takes for the bar to get a drink ready.
Prices are very fair for the quality you get. I can't wait to see whether they can deliver this experience once more when we return.
The waiter was very nice and observant, too.
I would rate Rausch under the top five restaurants I have been to (yes, outside of Panama) and it deserves a much higher rating here in Panama.

“Went twice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

We went once on my wife's birthday and everything was truly perfect. She had perfectly grilled salmon and I had the filet, which was perfectly cooked and juicy tender. The Mushrooms in a brown sauce and the beef carpaccio appetizers were standouts. Service was smooth and efficient and when the was a problem with our limited Spanish arose , the head waiter kept everything moving without a problem.
The place is elegant to look at...the music was a light and quiet jazz.
We enjoyed our second visit. This time we each had two appetizers...one as and appetizer and the second as "dinner".
Wine by the bottle and by the glass were fairly priced.

“Great food very reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We lucked in to Rausch on a trip to Panama City. Chef, former sous chef to Raymond Blanc at Manoir aux Quatre Saisons outside of London. Five course tasting menu with wines, $52.00 !!!And it was so great, we went back the second night. Everything was superb from the cappuccino of portobello mushrooms to start, melting short ribs over puree, intense caramel sorbet. You get the idea.
