“Mediocre at best - exceeds Panama standards”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Panamanian food and service are amongst the worst in the world and this place is no exception to the rule. Clearly the owners are complacent with the lower standards embraced by the government when it comes to tourism. My "special" had canned mushrooms in the recipe, The staff is there to perform a job - not to provide service. There is no shortage of arrogance on the part of the ownership. If you want creative cuisine in an atmosphere dedicated to excellance in service and product - go to Costa Rica.

“Beautiful location, exquisite decor and good food”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We are a family of 4 with 2 fidgety children. Eating out can sometimes be an anxious experience but the layout of the terrace made for a lovely experience. We took a corner table on the terrace and it was great. Service was a little slow would be my only criticism but we had time. The pool is beautifully lit and the climate is perfect for outdoor dining. My children had chicken tenders and a burger - which were really good. My husband had the sweetbreads and I had the pasta with goats cheese and asparagus. Mine was lovely but maybe I played it a bit safe - wish I had gone for the corvine (sea bass). My husband said his meat was a little bit fatty and the gratin was OK. We ordered apple crumble and passion fruit tart which were sublime. My kids had "El Heart Attack" which was an amazing sight of ice cream, chocolate and brownies. The chocolate heart brownies were delicious. I would definitely return to this beautiful house.

“Great Food and Friendly Service”

Beautifull setting, great food and service. We dined outside by the pool and lounged in the outdoor furniture. Close walk from Los Mandarinos.

“European flavor”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

The restaurant sits on the edge of a mountain with beautiful views. It is open into a lovely pool with a grand piano in the lobby. The food was excellent, well presented and the service was attentive and polite. Even though the owners are Panamanians, the place reminded our friends of a Swiss chalet with decorations etc. Strongly recommend a visit to El Valle and this particular restaurant, we will return.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The food here was excellent. It was a little difficult to find, but well worth looking for. The atmosphere is relaxed. There is a beautiful garden. I would certainly return here.
