“Great food and entertainment!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We were lucky to eat dinner at this restaurant in the old town of Panama City during our two day stay in the city. It was a recommendation of our hotel concierge and they helped us get a reservation for a great table on a saturday night. I recommend arriving early, like 7pm, to eat dinner before the show begins at 8:30. Also the place is not very big so arriving early or having reservations may help avoid waiting for a table. Food was delicious and portions were HUGE! Try a pitcher of the white sangria for a refreshing beverage. The show consisted of traditional panamanian live music and dancing. Very entertaining and passionate dancers and musicians. Finally, servers were very attentive, excellent service. A must-do while in Panama City.

“Great Food, Great Show, Great Service”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I had an amazing time in the Restaurant Diablicos, the service was excellent and the food superb. I was very happy with the show. Restaurant is located in el Casco Viejo in a very good and safe area with a very nice view in the afternoon, I recommend this Restaurant if you want to enjoy good food and a good show one of the nights you stay in Panama. My special and kind regards from Canada to the owner that made sure that I was ok all the time I was in the Restaurant.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

When we checked into the hotel, they recommended the Diablicos restaurant to us in the old town. We went there for lunch and it was ok - nothing special. The menu was rather limited and the service sloppy.

They talked about a live show in the evening however i have the feeling that this is the sort of place tourists go and not the locals. Dinner at the Trump Ocean Hotel was much better.

“Fan once, but will think twice next time”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I have been to Diablicos 5 times or more with friends from out of town. The food is good, but the service is going down hill. The service has been getting worse each time I go there, but I kept going back because the food was so good and it is located in a good place for tourist. Last time I went there, I realized that they increased the most popular dishes by 25% or more. The service was absent even though the restaurant was not crowded. I will think twice before going again. Too sad they are loosing a loyal customer.
