“"We don't have that"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We ate at this restaurant because it was rated so high, yet the place had few diners. We soon learned why--they couldn't make anything. Five of eight entrees were not available. The sea bass in a herb crust--well, they were "out of herb crust." How hard is it to chop herbs and press them into a fish? Clearly too hard for a CIA grad. Dessert was the only good thing about the restaurant. It all took forever. We wont be back. I really wanted to like it but we're disappointed.

“I revisited and still #1 in Panama”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I had eaten and reviewed this restaurant before but this time I invited a couple of Panamanian foodies that had not eaten there. Once again this came out as the best gourmet meal in Panama City. Prix Fix is excellent and a good deal at $48. Presentation is wonderful. My only pet peeve are the waiters. They do not bring the level of sophistication this place deserves. Service in general is very poor in Panama but this can be solved by hiring Colombian waiters perhaps?

“Elegant, great service, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Beautiful restaurant with a nice, comfortable atmosphere. Service was very, very good. The waiter was on point with everything, and made some great recommendations. The appetizer portions are a bit small, but everything we ordered was really, really good and tasted very fresh. I would return. Good wine list.

“5-Stars to a 5-Star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

This is a great example of what a high-end restaurant should be. The elegant surroundings, perfectly set tables, efficient wait staff, and imaginative food make this a perfect restaurant choice for special occasions or important business lunches.
