I will preface my review by saying I didn't eat here, only had a glass of wine on the plaza. We wanted to check it out based on the reviews, but had a reservation elsewhere. the waitstaff was attentive and friendly, and the atmosphere lovely outside on the plaza. There were no other guests for a while - it was... More

We saw this place and decided to try it out for dinner, glad we did! The place is small inside but we got a table, they also have outside seating but we wanted air conditioning. Great service and food. The owner was present keeping a watchful eye and I like that! Food was wonderful…pasta, ravioli or Rigatoni

The restaurant is located at a corner of the Plaza Bolivar, right in front of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The food is excellent and the restaurant offers a great variety of cocktails and wines. The staff is very friendly and qualified. We visited the restaurant for 4 times.

We ate here on out last night in the city and it was a truly memorable experience. The atmosphere in the square was beautiful and the food was delicious. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant. Would thoroughly recommend this place.

While in panama, a local recommended this restaurant which I was told it was Peruvian but in reality the menu is more international, some Peruvian with a twist. The restaurant is located in Casco Viejo in the city of panama. Casco Viejo is the historic district of panama which was completed at the end of the 1600's. It was a... More

The setting is perfect, on a square in the old town. The food was fine too, although at first my heart sank on hearing the dreaded words "fusion of Peruvian and Italian cuisine" - I don't believe in fusion. No problem, there was a good choice of purely Peruvian dishes available, and the octopus with potatoes I chose was very... More

A wonderful restaurant, located in Plaza Bolivar, Casco Viejo. We stayed in a unit on the Plaza, and visited all the local restaurants. This was THE favorite. Excellent beef and fish, done perfectly. If you are in the area.......Excellent!

We dined here one evening while in Panama last week and it was fabulous! It was in a quiet area and we felt very welcome to have our 7 year old son with us, too! I had the skirt steak, our waiter's favorite (I must say I was a little nervous about getting the waiter's favorite dish...which also happened to... More
