The combined meat and seafood platter should be a very nice dish... However the meat was way overcooked and therefore very dry and tough as the proverbial shoesole. A pity because the place is nice. A big terrace and right in the center of town. The bill comes with a 10% service charge, which is OK, but not if the service charge is also calculated on the 7 and 10% tax that also is added to your bill. The strange part was that upon receiving our change we were 2$ short... Showing it to the waiter it turned out that there were 2$ in a small compartment of the folder they brought the change in... Coincidence or a way to make something more than the 10% service charge that was already added to the bill???

Fun location right on the main plaza. We visited twice, the first time for a couple of beers, they were so cold they were actually frozen. I think they were having some problems with the fridges. We came back two days later for dinner and had a pasta, which was huge and well priced as well as an order of nachos the size of your head! Nice outdoor seating, however smoking is permitted so be prepared for cigars at the next table. The service was attentive but not overbearing although it took some time to pay the bill since they have one cashier processing all the bills for each server. We tried to visit for the Sunday brunch buffet which was advertised on a large vinyl banner out front but they were not open?

This place is located in the main square and has really nice outdoor seating. The food is good, not great. For some reason, they don't offer any light beers and service can be a bit slow. Still, the rustic outdoor atmosphere goes a long way.

We had a pizza, potato wedges and some nachos and it was all tasty. This is a nice bar to chill out with Panamanian locals and catch the latest football game on TV.

Good food, rapid service, fair value. I recommend the "picada de carnes" with a local beer. My wife had a strawberry drink and also was nice. Definitely can come again.
