“Super fresh seafood and a quiet atmosphere”

Restaurante Los Alacranes
Ranked #21 of 51 Restaurants in Chitre
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I have known this restaurant for years as it was introduced to me by my parents. It may be a bit difficult to find at night but basically you take the Circumvalating Road that goes around the outskirts of Chitre which would be to your left when coming from La Villa, then it goes downhill and and then when it turns right again watch for the gas station and Chitre Transport Terminal, you should take that road and go up that road. The restaurant will be around the 2nd or 3rd road to the left on a small side road that leads to it.

The menu is varied and the seafood is VERY fresh. Whatever you choose you can't have it wrong. It is not gourmet but it has very reasonable prices (around $10/person max.), it's fresh and healthy. Easy to accompany with a cold beer. For example the Fish sticks ("deditos de pescado") are not of the frozen kind, they are self made from fresh fish. You can also have whole fish, etc. Make sure to accompany it with "patacones" (fried plaintain) and/or fried Yuca.

You will be served by the owners most of the times which are very polite and recognize recurring clients (very few restaurant attendants in Panama do that) which kind of gives it the personal touch.

Whenever I am around this area I always come to this restaurant for dinner, just can't get tired of it. At night please wear trousers if you don't want to be bothered by mosquitoes, not many but hey, it is the tropics.
