Although the restaurant always has a good choice of daily fish specials, we always tend to order the schnitzel with roti (shredded and fried potatoes), which is delicious. The restaurant is easy to find.... just past the turn off to El Valle on the right if coming from Coronado area, and the atmosphere is cozy. It is the only restaurant of it's kind in all of the beach area so it is a nice change.

We came here with some local friends, who had been here several times. We appreciated the chef coming to our table to talk to us and help with the menu. We all enjoyed our meals. I'm not very familiar with Swiss food, but I enjoyed my spaetzli. Everyone else made sure to order the roasted potatoes for their side dish, which were also very good.

This restaurant came highly recommended by some friends. The service was attentive, and the food was good. This is probably one of the better places in the area for a decent meal. Like so many of the restaurants in the beaches area, the dining area is open air, with a roof in case of rain. We will definitely go back to El Meson Suizo.

We had Christmas dinner at El Meson Suizo with a group of about 15. Chef Lorenzo had prepared a beef tenderloin for anyone who wanted it and some of our friends opted for seafood. My husband and I both had the beef and it was amazing. Very tender and served in a creamy mushroom sauce that had a wonderful taste. We both got the roasti potatoes on the side which are shredded potatoes fried similar to hash browns but oh so much better. Also served with a mixed vegetable side, it was an absolutely wonderful meal. Chef Lorenzo always comes out of the kitchen to see how everyone is doing and is very friendly and personable, we will certainly be back soon. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is great. We topped the meal off with crepes with ice cream.

A really great place on the Panamerican Highway, near the exit to Valle. We came there with high expectations. The service was friendly, atmosphere was good. We had some nice apetizers and waited for the main dish. Too bad, the spaetzli was quite tasteless. The corvina was fat and overcooked, so were the vegetables. The papas fritas were great, one of the best we had in Panama. All in all, we had big expectations which were not met at all. Perhaps we had bad luck. Too bad, the service was great, the ambiance also. Better luck next time?
