Description: Savor the essence of authentic Panama at Salsipuedes Restaurant, the marvelous new restaurant located within Bristol Panama hotel. Under the direction of renowned Executive Chef Cuquita Arias de Calvo, Salsipuedes offers a rich showcase of gourmet Panamanian cuisine.The restaurant’s name honors Panama City’s legendary - and sometimes notorious -Salsipuedes Street, which has been a city landmark since 1671. Today, up and down the street, you can find Chinese and Panamanian merchants offering handmade crafts, Panamanian clothing, montunos, hats, books, magazines, school supplies, articles, Jewelry, vegetables, fruits, dishes, pots, pans, medicinal plants, teapots, among other items.In this regard, Salsipuedes Street and Salsipuedes Panama City Restaurant share several traits. Each celebrates the spirit of the Panamanian culture and is as cheerful and spicy as the people themselves.

I highly recommend Sal Si Puedes. It has a beautiful décor with and very nice ambiance.
The food is very unique unlike anything you probably have tried in Panama. I recommend the alligator tail, tuna tartare, patacon sliders and the rice dishes.

“Average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

I had the alagaitor and tuna as appetizer. Both were good, but you are not able to taste the alligator, it is hidden by a really good sauce. Had the sea food rice and this was not good at all.
Over all the food was good but I was not impressed. Not the best Panamanian food in town.

“No question... best Panamanian food in town!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Cuquita Arias (the name of the chef) is known locally as the "Martha Stewart" of Panama. well, I would say that Martha Stewart is the "Cuquita Arias" of Panama. The food is absolutely to die for. Everything is locally-grown and the combination of flavors is amazing. Don't leave Panama without dining at Sal Si Puedes!!!

“A grateful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Being at Bristol Hotel we're looking for a fine dinner not being very far from hotel. Checked out tripadvisor.com and Salsipuedes came as an option.
Menu is surprisingly good and has many choices. I'd recommend it in spite of being an "hotel restaurant". Timing was perfect, good food, good wines, not cheap but worths a visit.
