Great place for authentic Mexican food. Good portion size, relaxed atmosphere, the vegetarian husband can always get plenty of good eats. The bi-lingual waiter is a very nice surprise that makes the whole experience even better. Definitely our "go to" place for good Mexican!

I had the fish tacos and they were delicious! The restaurant is nice and close to the hotel we were staying at, Dlaaya. They have live music on the weekend which is very fun.

What an oasis Cholo's is. True Mexican food is hard to find in Panama. Mariela has got it, go for the corn tortillas. Salsas are incredible. Gustavo and the rest of the staff are great.
