Certificate of Excellence
Our hotel is created with the mindset that we use different spaces as one commercial organism that is constantly evolving throughout the day / night. Tantalo is a 12-room hotel, a restaurant featuring a communal kitchen-style atmosphere serving shared comfort dishes influenced by ingredients from around the globe, the lively ground floor bar / lounge and finally the only public outdoor rooftop bar / lounge in Casco Viejo with incredible views. Each hotel room features individually designed custom art by different local artists ensuring that no two rooms will be the same.

The bar has a fresh and young design that makes you feel cosy. The rooftop has a nice view of the skyline of the city and the historical center of the city. Be early if you wanna get a spot to sit while enjoying nice views and food.

We visited twice, once at sunset and once during the day. Great, chill vibe. Outstanding happy hour (can't beat the prices) and good service. The views are great and it's mainly standing room only but it was ok because of the ambiance and view.

We stoped by for a drink and a brunch and it was great - rooftop offers great views! We ordered three tapas style dishes: quinoa salad, pulled pork and signature ceviche, accompanied with passion fruit mojito and Balboa beer. Everything was nicely presented, fresh and tasty!
