“Don't miss this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

We've been staying on Balboa Ave for a month and walking to dinner on the Uruguay trying all the restaurants we could find reviewed on tripadvisor. None impressed us enough to warrant a return visit. I hadn't noticed or read about Tomate y Amor before tonight but we were hungry and running out of options. The dining room was cool, comfortable and elegant. The menu wasn't nearly as expensive as I thought it was going to be and had a nice range of selections. Our waitress was helpful and attentive - quite a pleasant change from what we had been encountering. Our cocktails, dinners and dessert were all very good. Overall, the quality of food and service was absolutely the best by far of the half dozen spots in this neighborhood we tried. Really a wonderful surprise after being very disappointed in a highly rated place right up the street.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

I was very hesitant eating here after walking by a few times and seeing it nearly empty.

In the end...we ended up eating here on a Saturday night (late night). It was empty and our expectations were low, but we were tired and hungry and this was right next to our hotel.

We were SOO pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent. The menu options had sufficient diversity. The service was also good.

Even as a kind of food snob, I thought the overall dining experience was great.

Would definitely recommend to others.

“Okay”

It's the best Italian food that I've had in Panama, but that's not saying a lot. Service was quite good. Food was only "okay".

“Wonderful steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Had a quiet dinner with my wife and found it very good. Our starters, boneless beef ribs and baby portobello mushrooms were excellent. The ribs tender and very tasty, the Portobellos sauteed with onions equally as delicious. The mains were a New York strip and am entraña wee done medium rare as ordered and very tender. The side Baked Potato was a potato half stuffed with mashed potato, cheese, bacon and chorizo, very tasty. Also a side of sauteed veg, was nice.
The restaurant was very slow as it was a Wednesday night, but the service was efficient and the wait staff friendly and attentive. Would like to see this place when it was full to see how they fare.
