“Great Restaurant, must visit when in Panama”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I have visited this restaurant for many years while traveling and the consistency of greatness has always been positive. Sea Food is alway fresh and tasty. Service is great. I cannot say anything but good things.

“The choice for people running out of ideas”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Casa Del Marisco is the default restaurant for business meetings if your host wants to play it safe.
It is probably more so based on the decor and atmosphere than the food. It has a rather serious and subdued ambience and feels a bit like walking into the library.
The food is neither bad nor really good. Seafood is fresh but preparation is average for Panama with good quality product drenched in way too much sauce and butter.
I would wish for people to select other restaurants for meetings every once in a while.

“Great Sea Food Place”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Probably one of the best sea-food restaurant in Panama with something else than just Corvina on the menu! Good service, large variety of dishes, excellent cuisine. The restaurant is large and lacks a bit of romance for a tête à tête, but overall it beats most restaurants in Panama.

“La Casa del Marisco”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Excellent seafood cuisine, creatively-prepared and well-served. The ambiance is upscale and comfortable, and the service commendable. Dress code - men must wear enclosed shoes during dinner, no sandals!

“Lovely food and service”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

On our last day in Panama City, just before leaving for the airport and after hiking through the beautiful Metropolitan Park, we had a divine lunch in this elegant restaurant. The white table cloths, fresh flowers, and the elegantly attired waiters were certainly not in tune with our dusty, hiking attire. However, we were treated with enormous respect. The ceviche and the clams from the appetizer list were fantastic, and we shared a small paella and a generous half pitcher of sangria. A beautiful and delicious ending to our three weeks traveling about Panama.
