The steaks come out on an iron skillet that keeps the steak HOT until the last bite. Also tried the chicken-rice Panamanian style which was absolutely delicious. Try one of their frozen Mango towers! Nice place to dine and watch the soccer games.

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
