Tantalo is one of the current "in" spots in Panama and is located in the Casco Viejo, the colonial part of the Panama City which is undergoing a wonderful Renaissance. The restaurant is situated on the ground floor of this 4-story boutique hotel. The restaurant is casual elegant, the food is served tapas style and there is an excellent array of choices, nearly all of them so tasty that you'll be licking your fingers. After dinner, make your way up to the roof top bar for a great view of the city skyline and groove with the DJ on the weekend nights as you enjoy your favorite libation under the stars. Very good value for the money. Reservations recommended Thursday through Saturday.

We went a sunset and spent a very nice hour in the rooftop bar before dinner. the view is fantastic, almost as good as from Ancon Hill. The staff were friendly and efficient. The restaurant itself was very modern and upscale. Small plates were very good but not so small from my perspective. I ordered too many. One of the best things about the place, I thought, was the art and wall murals. I would go just to see that.

This restaurant was recommended to us on our first night in Panama City and it did not disappoint. Beautiful view of the city from the rooftop bar, wonderful sangria, and absolutely delicious small plates. They were perfect to enjoy a sampling of their foods. Would definitely add this to an itinerary - highly recommended!

We ran into this bar/resturant a number of times using their ATM before we actually stopped and had a drink. What a mistake! Great bar both down stairs and on the roof. Had a margarita/lulo/passion that was to die for and also a liquor from Spain that I had never tried that was V V H VODK Caramel that was amazing. A real happening place for sure!
