We stopped there during our one day visit to Panama. Thought it would be a tourist trap, but it turned out to be a decent place with good, ambience and service. The chicken and shredded meat are really good.

Nice restaurant with good food. We had the typical special plate, best choice for me. Typical Panamese food, delicious..at 9 pm there was a great folkloric show. Show cost 10$ pp. Reservation is recommended. Just try it.

Foreigners should visit this place. The food is tasty and the show is entertaining. I am pretty sure you will enjoy both.

We went here on a recommendation and it was quiet and quaint. The food was tasty, but the service was mediocre.

We really enjoyed both our dinner (local cuisine) and the dancing. Both Spanish and English was spoken to the audience. The restaurant is not real big, so every seat has a great view. The staff was very friendly and we loved the food - we...More
