I have been to Azahar twice this month, one in a large business group and another one with one person - both experiences were excellent in their service, the delicate food preparation and its flavor experience. I highly recommend the Red Tuna crusted steak cut to perfection if that exists for tuna (had it both times). Their appetizer experience would be best shared to experience a number of options. You should request your wine chilled if you like that way.

In Panama for 14 days to pick up my visa and find the best area and restaurants. I found AZAHAR. Our Tripadvisor system is a little strange if you are used to "star" ratings. This is a true 4 -5 Star restaurant. Not just the food was really good, the service nice etc. This place is spectacular and worthy of a visit. When we complete our relocation, we will become regulars!

We were very curious what No 1 restaurant in Panama was like. We decided to have a try before we went home. We were not disappointed. The food was delicately prepared, the price was very reasonable. And the best part was the service. The staff were very attentive and polite. We like "Langostinos Azahar envueltos en masa philo con salsa thai" very much. A must go restaurant when in Panama City.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Azahar! Food was delish, service was great and the restaurant has a great vibe. I would suggest it to anyone visiting or living in Panama City!

I was excited to try this place as the reviews looked great and the menu did as well. Regretfully, our time and money would have been better spent elsewhere.

We were seated immediately upon arrival and while the waitstaff is attentive, but the experience fell short due to the rudeness of their Maitre D'. His name is Victor and he felt the need to approach our table to advise my guest that we are in a fine dining restaurant and he needed to take his foot of the bench. (His legs were crossed)

While I understand his concern in theory, the well worn velvet banquette was hardly in harm's way. Additionally, scolding customers is not smart business. As far as the fine dining atmosphere he is trying to protect: might I recommend starting with the screaming children in strollers at the table next to mine?

Unfortunately Victor is the only reason I will never return to this place. The food actually is quite good. Quality ingredients. Great presentation and inventive menu.

I can only assume that Victor is an extension of the owners and management and for that reason, we won't be back.

Mr Jaramillo, we are deeply concerned about your last comment on TripAdvisor. On first place we would like to offer you a sincere apology for your experience at Azahar; We work hard everyday to suceed the expectations of our clientele. It is a true that due to the standads of our Restaurant, we must follow some basic protocol principles but we assume that the approach of our Maitre D' was not the correct. Our commitmet with clients is one of our premises, so we would like to offer you a complimentary bottle of wine on your next visit to the Restaurant in case you wish to give us a second opportunity. Thank you for your time.
