Good and fast service. Had chicken quesadilla. I don't like mayonnaise and it seems to be in all sandwich-like foods in Panama. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich. Good, but not earth shattering. Reasonable prices.

The energy is amazing! People dancing on rooftop bar. Great drinks not too expensive! Roped off VIP area not necessary front with best views. Open the space up so everyone can enjoy not just those paying over $250 or ordering a bottle. That is why I scored 4/5...if you go earlier around 930 there is no wait otherwise their might... More

We chose Tantalo in order to treat ourselves - based on word of mouth and other's reviews (in TripAdvisor). We were not disappointed. The menu is diverse and eclectic - from fresh seafood to curry. The surroundings are more elegant than some places, with a distinctly modernist feel. The waiter made helpful suggestions. The food arrived in good time and... More

This is a fun place with a roof terrace bar. The food is good what I call American type fare -- you could be on South Beech, Miami. The roof terrace use to be GREAT .. but they have now ruined it by taping off the front area only for VIPS and they have made the most horrendous fold back... More

Start with the rooftop bar for a nice cocktail and view of the city, then down for a great meal. Love sampling various tapa, but I also like to go for lunch as they have nice special at a low price. This is one restaurant I have never had a bad meal at.

Went with a group of about 40 people and a pre-ordered tapas style menu. Everything that came out was absolutely delicious. Best octopus we'd ever had. Would highly recommend a visit to Tantalo if you're anywhere near the old city. Uber is the most cost effective way to get around if travelling from resorts. Take a couple hours to walk... More

With various "quirky" tastes and dietary requirements to satisfy, on tour in Casco Antiguo, this was my choice as the guide/resident (for sophisticated music professors) and Tantalo was a huge success. Everyone ordered something different but each person was quite happy. The atmosphere is fun/ elegant/relaxed/colorful and the service and presentations were great. And ample portions. I was very pleased... More

We went to Tantalo's after the recommendations from various food websites and were not disappointed! A big group of 8, and various ages, everyone was thrilled with the food, the ambiance and the service. My teenager has since been dreaming of the tamale pie...
