“Best restaurant in Panama”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

My wife and I love this place! We went on a Tuesday evening and were the only ones in the house! It was so pleasant sitting on the porch having every detail of our meal attended to. While in Panama City we stayed at the Trump hotel and feel that the staff here is far better. The food is to die for. We enjoyed it so much the first night that we went back the very next day.

“Just ok”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

I heard the raves and we were not impressed. The shrimp appetizer was with tiny bay shrimp, the 'blackened chicken' my wife ordered was not blackened at all but was more like sliced boiled chicken. I orderd a Cassoulet, it was good but served in a small bowl and filled to the top more like a bar would.
Service was nice, the head man that took our reservation and showed us the house was kind and great, but the waiter was not very attentive although only 2 other guests there when we were. Had to ask several times for a napkin.
The setting is beautiful and according to the book from the Chef she is amazing and has done amazing parties, but ours just was ok, and we didn't go back again.

“Best meal in Panama!”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

A lovely place about 5-6 minutes drive from the center of El Valle. I was there at dinner, so missed the view of the mountains -- but everything else was right. Beautiful outdoor room, excellent food, extremely good service.

It's expensive, but not more so than a couple of places in Panama City that I tried, which couldn't manage the warmth or competence of service that Casa de Lourdes did. A delightful older gentleman - like someone out of a P.G. Wodehouse novel - came by to chat. Presumably a member of the owners' family (I never quite got it straight), but just one more lovely touch at a lovely restaurant. Highest recommendation!
