Very friendly staff and very accommodating. The menu has a variety of dishes and everyone enjoyed their main course. The only comment is that the pasta portions were on the small side.

After reading previous TA reviews, we came here Christmas Eve with very solid expectations. The restaurant itself has a lovely ambience, and the service was friendly and efficient. However, our meals were for the most part just so-so. Still good and tasty but not particularly memorable. My husband had the Christmas Eve meal plan (starter of seafood salad, beef wellington,...

They were touted on TripAdvisor as a top place in Panama City. It was good but less than expected. Service was slow, while the drinks were good. Wine list was limited. The seafood soup was the highlight of my meal as an appetizer. Main was a pork Milanese. Others had seafood which was again good but nothing stands out.

What a find. Great ambience, lovely staff, delicious food, perfect setting ... what more could you ask for? Our tour guide recommended it and we were so glad we went there. Pricey, but not ridiculous. $130 for two people.... bottle of wine, starter and main course. Just delicious food ... Do go there, you won't regret it.

Nice looking place. Starter with salmon was good, but I would have preferred it without fried onions. Vegetable side dishes come with pieces of bacon. The corvina was steamed and was not great. I had steamed corvina before in other restaurants, and it was delicious. A broad selection of wines, also by the glass. Service was friendly, but I had... More

Given the reviews, we expected the restaurant to be outstanding. The food was good, and the service was attentive, but it was nothing particularly special. In particular, the food is not in the same category as that at either Maito or Madrigal, both of which were truly excellent. La Posta seems to be a reliable place for a decent meal,... More

The decor of the restaurant is of a colonial fashion which definitely gives it character. The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. The wine selection was good, the party particularly enjoyed the Purple malbec. On arrival you are greated with a complementary glass of prosecco and gaspacho which was a pleasant surprise and start to the dinner. Now, for the... More

Our extended family of 8 were in Panama City for a quick overnight before heading to Bocas Del Toro. It was my sis-in-laws birthday and we wanted something special for her. This was just around the corner from our hotel, the Waldorf. We got there relatively early for Panama, 6pm. They readily accommodated us. The kids, 13-15years old sat on... More

Our 1st visit to La Posta. Expected the best based on the reviews and got it in spades. Not inexpensive, but worth it. Greeted with a glass of bubbly and appetizer. Excellent Waite staff. Attentive but not hovering. I enjoyed a great NY strip, cooked to perfection and my wife had a pasta dish that she still res about. No... More
