I booked and paid in advance for a dinner. The day of the dinner nobody showed up or attended my calls. I'm still waiting for a refund of my money.

We pre booked the lunchtime free flow executive experience, we communicated with the manager via WhatsApp to make our booking and confirm arrival pick up. We arrived, no pick up, 20 minutes later and 3 telephone calls and it finally arrived (it's a 5 minute...journey from the restaurant to the pier so I fail to understand why it took so long). Food was great, waiter was fairly attentive but the transport back to the pier was again an issue. Staff knew we had the 2. 30 ferry booked, they asked when we arrived but we had to ask at 2.15 if it was coming and again at 2.20, it finally arrived at 2.25 and we had to run to catch the ferry as it was untying ropes and pulling away. Poor organisation spoiled the experience for us.More

A unforgettable experience. Not inexpensive, for sure, but for an experience you will remember, this is the place. This gorgeous property has rooms that are as exceptional as the food, service and atmosphere. Quite an addition to this lovely little island.

I would have to say that this is one of the best establishments in Panama. Marco made this birthday experience for my friend amazing! And between the amazing food and attentiveness, I would have to say this would be one of the reasons why I...come back to Panama . Thank you and your staff for the exceptional service and for making this moment one my friend will remember for years to come. Regards,More

We know the grounds and location of the splendid Villa Caprichosa. We enjoyed several stays always to remember and had the first ever meal when the original small terrace was opened for dinners. Marvelously done ! Based on the experiences at the Villa, this time...we wanted to stay at the Villa again and enjoy the La Vista set menu announcing "Flavors of the World". The location is nice if not unique, and designed for an intimate, romantic or at least relaxing evening-out-dining with twinkling lights of the island and a horizon of ships at anchor in front of Panama City's impressive skyline. Although we learned from advertising that the dinner seemed to be for a limited number of 30 gourmet loving party, the little place was dressed and occupied by at least 40 people, which we feel it makes for a too croudy patio plus covered terrace. The set price per person makes you believe a particular level of service and standard will be offered. On arrival, a friendly waiter greeted and offered a white or red wine as "aperitivo" while waiting for the guests, who all had to make advanced reservations, and were ferried by private boat from the mainland. (Only a few of them were in the Villa for overnight). The 6 course menu with paired wines started off very tasteful while the attentive waiter introducing each plate served. However, the later the evening, the less attention was given to the service. We were not told anymore what the main courses were. As an answer about the first main plate's content came wrong, we wondered what about the second one. While the menu started with fish dishes and we had been served white wine -the longer the less chilled, the three thin slices of "beef entraña" (as the waiter told us what it was after we asked for) were presented, yet no red wine was offered. The dessert seemed to be of "less importance", as it was in a kind of hurry dropped on the table after the staff had left us unattended on our own for a certain time. We received the small bowl which held a pale light cream and some different pieces of red fruits, and understood it was the moment to arrange for the bill... Conclusion : 3 excellent appetizing starters and a delicious coconut soup served with much attention, followed by a not so imaginative couple of main dishes and service that had no comparison with it in the beginning of the evening. Panama offers much better experiences for a similar price !More

The most refined and expensive dining experience on Isla Taboga. The dining room is located high up on the hill well above the town square. It has a commanding view if the harbor and across to Panama. There is seating for maybe 30 if the...garden area is used. The kitchen is small and the chef appears to directly attend to each meal. There was a reasonable food and wine selection and what we had was excellent both in terms of taste and presentation. Dietary restrictions were not a problem even though we arrived without a reservation. Andres, out waiter was pleasant and spoke English well. He was kind enough (and things were slow enough), to walk us back down to mainstreet along a shortcut through the local neighborhoods.More

Part of boutique hotel Villa Caprichosa, but open to public and worth the trip up the hill for food, view and service. We stayed at hotel, so enjoyed room service for nominal fee couple times. Owner and chef take great pride in ingredients, innovation and...service. Not cheap but fairly priced.More
