We happened to have tried Andres Madrigal's food in some of his awarded restaurants in Madrid so we were curious about his new adventure in Panamá. Our curiosity was well rewarded.
We had dinner on a busy Friday night. The restaurant is in a nice old house and the decoration is quite "european" for a panamanian restaurant, and so are the crockery and the cutlery.
And for the food: Madrigal has been always been very interested in foreign ingredients and he has made some nice discoveries there and uses them smartly, without losing his roots. We ate a tasting menu. I love it all but specially the "conchuelas" (scallops), the "camote" with egg and ham, the duck and both the desserts, the inverse cheese tart we had seen in the New York Times and the "pain perdu". The price is right for Panama city (that is not cheep) and the value for money is excellent.
To summarize, one of the best options - if not the best - for dinner in Panama "casco viejo" (old city).
