I would rank La Trona next to many of our best dining experiences around the world. The service, atmosphere and food each met our exceeded the expectation we would have for our favorite restaurants in New York and DC. The smoked duck risotto comes in at #2 on our top risotto list. The short ribs melted in your mouth. From appetizers through desserts it was a perfect evening. We were especially pleased by the attentive service. Even on a busy Friday night the wait staff paid us constant attention without hovering or becoming overbearing. Their recommendations for wine, food and dessert were all attentive to our preferences and exactly what we were looking for. And at the end of the meal, the bill was a pleasant surprise! Dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine, appetizers, entrees and deserts was a little more than half what it would have been in NYC. If you are in Panama City, you must go to La Trona.
