You will love Naturalemente. Chantel and Gabriel are super hosts. The bungalows are exquisite. Breakfast was awesome and you must stay for dinner. The grounds are beautiful.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

This place is the place to go when in las lajas. The prices are low for what you get, the owner prepares the food with love and they also serve great cocktails. This place really stands out from the rest

“Finally, a good pizza in Central America!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Finally, a pizza as it should be in Central America! Italian run and owned, Naturalmente is a great diversion from the usual rice and beans and patacones which are the staple of the Panamanian diet, and it is more than reasonably priced. Chantal and Gabriele run the lovely, cosy place and give it a homey feeling, chatting up the customers, making great suggestions for appropriate wine to accompany the meal. They are charming, welcoming, wonderful hosts and excellent chefs, who have put classy touches in the place – from the lighting, to the great background music, to scent diffusers. The place is truly spotless too – which in Panama does not go without saying. The pizza is very good, especially considering the local standards. The crust is as it should be (and we do know about pizza!). Pity is, it is hard to find good ingredients locally, to render what already is a good pizza a GREAT one. Yet, I really liked it. If you get to stay till late like we did, you may have the chance to meet their lovely, playful dogs and cats – only allowed in the garden once the customers have all left. To top your dinner, go for the homemade gelato!

“Crust vs Topping”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant had a lovely setting and the owners/workers were very friendly. The pizza that we ordered had a wonderful crust! The toppings however left something to be desired. We ordered the pizza with artichoke hears, olives, mushrooms, and ham. We were disappointed that the mushrooms were canned (rubbery texture), the artichoke hears were practically missing (only 3 small pieces on the whole pizza), and the ham was "pressed" (although that seems to be the norm in Panama). We also felt that the pizza sauce seemed watered down, lacking in flavor.
