“Wonderful Place to Celebrate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We visited Casa deLourdes based on the recommendation of the owner of Park Eden where we stayed. We loved the romantic old world anbiance of the restuarant as well as the menu. The staff was professional and welcoming from when we stopped by to look at the restauant and made a reservation and of cousre when we actually dined there. There was a good wine selection, The food was very tasty , well served and the service was prompt but unhurrued, though we were there late in the evening we never felt rushed. It was a wonderful venue in which to celebrate my husband's birthday

“overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisory reviews. Mediocre food and service. Reservation was lost and entrees obviously microwaved as they arrived in 5 minutes. Appetizer was forgotten although there were only 3 other tables dining. I wish Gordon Ramsey would go there.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Beautiful setting and ambience. We didn't expect the food to be great, but it was delicious. I definitely recommend a stop here and it looks like a great place to stay!

“Best of El Valle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

This is by far the best restaurant of all of El Valle. The attention to details and quality of ingredients makes the dinner experience. I had the salad with watercress, figs and manchego, it was fresh and delicious. Also had the cashew crusted seabass with potato gratin, great also. The ambiance of the restaurant is like you are in a posh house. Very romantic but also great for families.

“Like dining at a friend's home in the country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

We stayed at Los Mandarinos in El Valle for three days and just had to try Casa de Lourdes after hearing so much about it and it being next door. Our concierge made us a reservation for 7 pm and we joined new friends for dinner. The cushions were comfortable and the menu varied. The chef himself came out to answer menu questions and to wish us a good meal. Everything at the table was good. My husband had a filet of beef that was really good (which can be hard to find in Panama as they tend to overcook their meat or use chewy cuts), I had a penne with lamb ragout, and our friends had blackened chicken. Save room for desert as the apple crunch with dulce de leche and ice cream was amazing. My only wish was that there could be something done about the rain coming in on us as we ate. The wind can make the rain seem to pour sideways here and even though we were seated as far away from the elements on the patio as possible (by the fireplace), we still were "misted" on the whole time. Otherwise, great dinner.
