“Absolutely delicious!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

I has the octopus & I'll tell you, the chefs star is by it for a reason! He has every right to be very proud of this dish, perfectly cooked, great flavor, just delicious! Best dish I've had in Central America so far! The bartenders were great, I believe the gentleman's name was Eric, very nice & accommodating. I'll definitely be returning this evening & will probably get the octopus again, but have to try the rest of the menu. Oh & the decor is beautiful! Great job y'all!

“Eclectic international, delightful menu”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Went to this restaurant at the suggestion of my friend's 30 something chef son. He nailed it. The prices are really wonderful by any standards, but the food is divine and the service too -- divine. What I am trying to say is that it was a magical evening, and the gin and tonic, ceviche and sushi and service were...perfect.

“Busy Lunch Crowd But Quick and Reasonable”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

During our day tour of Casco Viejo, our guide Gloria Smith, recommended Casco Viejo for lunch - we enjoyed chicken wraps with fries plus cervazas and bottles of water for $25. The service was prompt. The food while not remarkable it was hot and quick and the beer and water very cold. Just what we needed for our rest during the tour of the area. The menu is brief but adequate .Their was also an ATM in the restaurant. We did not return for supper which is where the rooftop views come into play.

“Good restaurant with excellent views from rooftop bar”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

My wife & I attended an evening function on rooftop bar which has excellent views of Caso Viejo and Panama Bay afterwards looked for a restaurant open in Casco Viejo but without reservations at 10 pm returned to hotel restauant and very pleasantly surprised.

The service was excellent and food was quite good despite them trying to overcharge us on the bill which they admitted and reduced but still $88.00 lighting is very low which makes it difficult to read menus so with aid of flashlight we had cerviches and sizzling steaks afterwards.House wine (plonk) is $7.00 glass so cheaper to buy bottle at least you know what your drinking.

We will return when next in the area..
