With just two restaurants and un Sundays just a little more. Crowded in the weekends with locals. Very good atmosphere. Perfect for swimming.

We didn't eat here but if you are hanging out on the beach you should absolutely buy a Coconut (or two or three) and enjoy it on the sand. We bought a little bottle of vodka and made our own cocktails. Very reasonable prices and...More

We went there for a day... The restaurant serves delicious food and the beach itself is just great. Clear water, white sand and a nice view! You can easily relax there! Nice place and I would go back there!

Loved this place for the location, the food and the general vibe....not many restaurants like this in Panama. Went on the weekend past and the place is completely GONE! No structures, no beach huts - nada. What a shame :o(

We went there in the evening to have dinner. We had a mix of dishes and everything was very good. The owners and the bartender who all spoke English took the time to explain all the menu items to us. At the end of the...More

I am glad we have such a great beach bar within staggering distance of our house - Santa Clara Beach Bar and Grill is everything you want in a beach bar - right on the ocean, open air, clean washrooms, English-speaking bartenders and wait staff,...More

Compared to all the others places we visited in the area, this place is over priced and the food was average. I really felt we were only paying for the view since this restaurant overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

This place opened in august. They don't have a website but they do have a Facebook page. Two canadians opened this place and the tag is 'dreams do come true'. Telephone number is 507-908-8088 in panama. Apparently panamanians don't do "addresses" on the beach but it's well marked. What a find. Grat food, cabanas with hammocks. This is a gem folks should know about...or maybe not so I can keep it to myself!
