Visited this in hip cafe cocktail rooftop bar in Casco Viejo just 1,5 hours before sunset. The view over the Basalica Metropolitana de Santa Maria la Antigua roof and Bahia de Panama is absolutely a must have seen. Nice cocktails and bottled beers.

Came here on my last night in Panama city w my best friend who recommended this place. I loved it! The music was fun and so were the people. I didn't quite understand the $10 cover charge for a bar, but the city view was well worth it. Drinks were tasty, a little pricey for Panama, I had a Coco...

The restaurant serves up an orgasmic seafood experience. Chef Alexander claims that when he cooks, he prepares the food with love. If you're ever in panama city, look up tantalos restaurant. You will not regret it. Excellent service, even better food.

Location is perfect and the hotel staff is stellar! Rooms are squeaky clean and large. Balcony a big plus. No question that the noise could be a problem for some, but this is the place to be in Panama City.

Went here on the recommendation of our hotel staff. Rooftop bar is definitely the happening place in town! Loud, nonstop techno/pop DJ driven music. Good appetizers, great views. Definitely the hip place for the younger crowd of Panama City

This is a great place to start the night with friends. First something to share with friends at the first floor (Mac and cheese with ships, pulled pork and ceviche)... Then move on to the rooftop for some drinks and party with one of the best views of the city!
