Eight of us went on a Sunday evening. Everyone enjoyed their margaritas. Several had chicken quesadillas which were so large they all had take-aways for lunch the next day. My husband and I shared the bacon-wrapped grilled shrimp with rice - plenty for two people. Very tasty. So much so that we have ordered it each of the three times we've been here. A highlight is the fresh salsa made to taste (spicy/medium/mild) right at tableside. Also, the guacamole was good. The ambiance, as noted by others, is delightful. We found the hostess and servers to be efficient and friendly. They spoke enough English to accommodate our limited Spanish. And they provided separate checks, which is not always a granted request at area restaurants. All in all, we enjoyed our dinner and plan to return.

Finally a margarita at a restaurant in Panama City that tastes like it has tequila in it. Didn't mind paying $7.50. My quesadillas were good. The other 11 ladies in our party said their food was also good. As to the other reviews that this restaurant is not truly Mexican, not in Mexico and a couple other Mexican restaurants I've been to weren't authentic, were way over priced and margaritas were mainly mix. Decor is lovely and seating is broken up so it isn't a big noisy room. Loved the ceiling lights. Service was slow the day we ate there, but Panama still lags behind in service in most restaurants. Location is a small mall that gives you the opportunity to find a parking space, sometimes. Nice photos at the Degusta Panama website. Link below.

Nice ambiance but everything else falls short. Food is only so-so at best. Not truly Mexican at all. Service was poor, as to be expected in Panama. We won't return.

If you are into the fast food Taco-Bell type Mexican food restaurant in a well decorated ambiance, this is your place. There are other very good Mexican restaurants in Panama, and in fact Los Cebollines in Central America are good, but this one is suffering from growing pains.
