I think this restaurant has been renamed to Punta Arena. Pictures of interior are identical to the Peruvian restaurant i visited ( and reviewed) - Puntarenas

This restaurant has been open about a month since writing this review. The are very happy to see you, and the restaurant is conveniently located next to the Hampton Hotel Panama. The Shrimp Cocktail was very tasty as was the Corvina Milanes. The Pisco Sours were great, the service was very good, but if you are in a rush, you... More

I enjoyed lunch today at Fina Estampa. I was very surprised that our party of 6 were the only customers throughout our 2 hour meal. The ceviche de corvina was very good and what I expected. Large chunks of marinated in lime juice corvina, with lots of red onions. My main course was a well prepared grilled organic chicken breast.... More

My friend and I visited this restaurant last weekend. The restaurant itself has a nice decor, very welcoming. The waiter was very nice but discouraged us from trying the Seafood Paella, and described a different Paella that was quicker made with "roast pork" which turned out to be what we refer to as "salt pork" or seasoning pork, with rice....

After trying various restos in Panama City, this is the one to remember. Service, food, presentation and attention to detail makes this a 5* resto. Ceviche, spicy langoustines and creme brûlée were culinary delights. My wife had Mediterranean salmon and chocolate fondido and was equally impressed. Even though there weren't many in the resto when we went, don't be misled.... More

I went to this restaurant expecting a good service, but instead I received the crappiest service from this restaurant. I had to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes for my food and the food was not even good. I ordered a Rib Eye steak which is not even cheap and it came out cold and full of fat. I mean... More
