The fire roasted chicken is excellent, the pulpo entero (Octopus) is also very good. The Premium meats are excellent but pricey. Service is generally not the greatest, but that's pretty standard for Panama.

We went looking for authentic flavor and charm and Don Chacho Grill delivered. We sat outside near the fire where they were whole roasting a dozen or so chickens. Excellent meal and a nice value.

Whatever you do, DON'T leave without trying the rotisserie chicken with chimichurri. You will not regret it. Add some yuca and patacones (fried planteens). You can thank me later ;) Oh! they make a nice sangria as well

We ate at Don Chacho Grill, on the patio, during our vacation in Playa Coronado. It is located very conveniently close to Coronado Bay Condos where we were staying. This was my night for steak and the filet I had was great! Cooked perfectly to my medium rare taste.

Nice quiet environment and good service. Nice small salads and wonderful sides. My wife really liked the Sangria, Basic wine list with good pricing focusing on wines from Argentina and Chile. Will definitely be back, very reasonable price for the quality of food

We went here for lunch. I ordered the filet mignon which was not really anything resembling filet mignon in the US. I asked for medium rare and it was pretty well done. Not terrible, just not what I was expecting. The ceviche was very tasty (although very salty). I have a huge aversion to cilantro so I was very pleased... More

We stopped at Coronado for lunch and without a doubt went for Don Chacho. The food was amazing as always, but the service has gone down. We wanted to order burgers with patacones instead of fries and they wouldn't even try to ask if they could change it. They don't smile and seem to pay more attention to the customers... More

This was a very nice restaurant. Staff was very friendly and service was good. The Panamanian Chicken and Rice was delicious and so were the beef empanadas. We actually went back the next night and got half a dozen to go!

I could not find any reviews for any restaurants at Coronado Beach Panama, This area has many restaurants and more being built as the area is growing. This is also a tourist area and Coronado Beach is on the travel forum. I could not right an address as I could not find one but it is on the main road going into Coronado Beach. Thanks
