Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 4 August 2022 via mobile

We were told that this was a fantastic restaurant and it did not disappoint. The setting was so beautiful with all the plants surrounding it but the food was the real star with the homemade pasta. Chantal, one of the owners was beautiful and gracious...and a real delight to speak with. We will be back to Las Lajas as often as we can and will be sure to go here every time. The menu changes every few days so there will always be something new and wonderful to try! Linda and Dennis ArnoldMore

As a previous chef and restaurant owner I cant imagine the difficulty of owning and operating a specialty restaurant in a small onclave of central Panama, but these two do an amazing job at creating wonderful food and excellent service during these times. I would...highly recommend whether you are passing by or live in the area !More

If you stay in Las Lajas you have to go to Naturalmente. The food is really excellent (self-made pasta and fresh ingredients) and the terrace invites for a relaxed evening.

Our party of five included two vegans and two who required gluten free meals. We had a tasty lasagna, savory vegan spaghetti, generous salads, and fresh tuna, and we were all more than satisfied. Hearty portions left us unable to try dessert. Very reasonably priced....Highly recommended.More

Chantal runs a very nice restaurant with Italian cuisine mixed with local flavors. If you should come anywhere near this place come in for meal, it’s worth any penny. Besides that it’s quality prices are more than moderate, too.

The homemade pasta is really extraordinary and the creative ideas for the sauces are very exciting. Also the way the rice was prepared was very extraodinary - touch of coconut and great quality.The prices for the main dishes are ok,taking into consideration the location of...the restaurant, the once for the starters a little to high. But what can you say....Try to find something similar in the area...I bet you won't.More

This cosy restaurant surrounded by nature is excellent. The service was excellent and the food was exceptional given the isolated location. If you are passing by, you have to stop.

This place was a true surprise for us. We came from a long drive to Las lajas and we couldn't find any restaurant open until we found Naturalmente. We received a very warm welcome from the owners and were explained about the great menu they...have. We ordered the eggplant parmiggiana, homemade shrimps pasta and fresh Tuna filet which were all delicious. Besides the amazing food, the service was excellent and the location is stunning.More

This is by far one of the best restaurants in Las Lajas. Chantal and Giorgio are excellent hosts. Giorgio is an incredible chef. I have been coming here for years and the food keeps on getting better and better. It's simply a must. You will...not be disappointed. The restaurant is beautifully decorated . The food is always fresh. The ambiance is perfect. Been celebrating my birthday here for years and I have never been disappointed. Chantal made our evening with friends so special with the nicely decorated tables, excellent moijitos and must not forget Giorgio meals. Can't wait to come again. Thank you .More

We stayed for 2 nights, but the first night the restaurant was closed (Monday). So unfortunately we only had one meal on the second evening. But it was the best meal we had had in a long while! Everything is home made and excellent! Definitely...worth going to! The amberjack was delicious with fragrant rice and all pasta dishes are outstanding! Congratulations!More

During the week there is not much to see and do besides the beautiful beach in las lagas. Really good place to chill and recharge if travelling for a longer time. You really must stop by at the restaurant. It's a magnificent place, good atmosphere...and ofcourse delicious food. The owner speaks 5 languages and is very involved with her guest. We defenitely recommand the place.More

This restaurant is ALL you ever wished for: Extraordinary HOME MADE food prepared by great chefs, served in a lush garden overlooking the mountains, accompanied by spectacular sunsets! We entered with no expectations and left with the feeling we just had the BEST food ever!...The owner are extremely friendly and welcoming and take great care of their guests. The food was definitely made in HEAVEN! From the start to finish everything was just perfect! My partner who is also a chef said the home made burger was probably the best he ever had. The desert left us speechless - chocolate cheesecake with oreo base and maracuja sauce, absolutely delicious!! Huge COMPLIMENTS on your fabulous food and good luck for the future!More
