This is a great resturant. I have been here a couple of times and would definitely go back. Fantastic menu and the fish is excellent quality and beautifully (and interestingly) cooked. Dont go too early as the athmosphere is better a little later on when it fills up (typically Spanish). Great location and old style building.

I found this place a little too expensive for the amount of food you get. The sauce on my meat, which I did not ask for, was way too salty and ruined the food, which is nothing really different.

Apparently, "Yo no como carne" is not understood at La Posta.

I ordered the "Gnocchi & Ricotta" (it simply read: pasta & cheese). In Spanish, I specifically asked if it had meat. I also said, twice, "Yo no como carne." After the waiter checked with the kitchen, he returned to the table & shook his head "no". Ok. Well, a few minutes later, out comes a dish of gnocchi in a sauce with sausage and no ricotta. At this point, it was wine & dessert. SOLO!

While the restaurant itself was nice, the menu descriptions are questionable. Perhaps in the future they could clearly describe the menu items or maybe even offer a few vegetarian selections ...

LOVE LOVE LOVE La Posta!!

Last time I was down in Panama (I am there often for work) had a nice little going away dinner here with a group of 4 friends.
Octopus three ways is a must order ... I mean who doesn't like some octopus carpaccio!?!?
Nice wine list and if David is around to recommend a nice bottle to go with your meal then you are in for a treat.
Its usually a toss up for me between the Risotto with bacon, garlic and tomatoes or the Short Ribs.
Definitely save some room for dessert!! You have to order the Napoleon ... looks great and tastes even better plus its easy to share with the whole table.
can't wait to get back down to the PTY for another visit!!

Calm and stately, La Posta is my top choice for taking out of town guests, especially those that like to quietly linger over their food. The food, by the way, is excellent with a strong emphasis on local seafood. The menu is not huge, but it is well-balanced, offering both some well-loved classics and refined local Panamanian dishes. We especially loved the apps.
