I can highly recommend this place! The breakfast leaves no wishes open! The staff is really nice and you can stay at least one hour and you still have a look around and find something new on the walls. Nice art gallery and the bathroom.. ladies have a closer look at the wallpaper ;-)

We went to the rooftop for cocktails, they were just ok, served in plastic glasses. The view was fine but nothing special.

Amazing ceviche with fresh fish and lime, and grilled platter with steak, chicken, onions and chorizo to die for! We also loved the flavors of the grilled shrimp dish. It was truly epic. Big delicious shrimp wrapped in back and cooked until crispy. We will be back for dinner for sure to try some more!

You know when a restaurant fills up with locals, you're in for good food at good prices. That is exactly what we found for lunch today at Tantalo Kitchen. It's a deceivingly large place with a cool bar area and by 12:15 it was packed for lunch. They have a very inexpensive lunch menu but we ordered off the regular... More

We went here for NYE and one other night while in Panama. It was a great atmosphere and view. We did not get a chance to eat in the dining room but it was always busy and looked delicious.

Not only did they have fantastic food, but the REAL party starts after 7 or 8. Huge selection at the bar, amazing decor, wonderful music!

It was very difficult to find a place for dinner on NYE, luckily someone cancelled their reservation and we got a table. The atmosphere is very hip. They have high top tables. Everything is tapas like dishes and pretty large too. They also have a roofbar, but that night it was $140 per head. The food was very delicious and... More

I've been at Tantalos a couple of times already and last night we dined and then enjoyed a little dance on the roof terrace. I ordered the entraña and pulpo to share. It was great and loved that it was already cut in strips. The terrace roof was a little crowded but great music and a nice breeze made it... More
