We stayed nearby and ended up coming here 3 times because we enjoyed it so much. The creole shrimp and sea bass were amazing. The ceviche was excellent and refreshing. If you’re vegetarian options are limited to side dishes (fried yucca, coconut rice, French fries,...More

Service was terrible, the fried platter was uniformly bland and over fried. The fish was completely unseasoned and more fried than anything I've ever had. I don't have anything redeeming to say about this place.

We had lunch here and ordered the Panamanian platter; which was enough to feed 3-4 persons and consists of fried everything. All different bites such as chicken, empanadas, bananacookies, fishfingers, yuka, sausage tasted sort of the same. Orangejuice was not fresh. Would not recommend.
