Local take on international favorites - and some. One of us ordered the 65$ tasting menu, the other à la carte. Ended up paying 150$ for 2. Which rivals, in price, but not in quality, with rather expensive restaurants in Europe or the US. Note that only 1 glass of wine was ordere (not great, and 10$). Bottles of wine... More

Excellent food in a charming setting in Old Town Panama City. Also good selection of wines. The lamb tacos were unbelievable as was the grouper and the scallops. Service was excellent too.

This restaurent is in the mids on old town, nice area to walk and discover the old cathedrals. The service is amazing. The food is delicious. We loved the seafood items more than the meat. Bon appétit

Dinner at Madrigal was very a delightful evening start to finish. Service, wine and food all above par. It is also a magical little setting in the old part of town. A real keeper

Although not busy at all when we visited for lunch this was a good restaurant with well presented meals and good service, it is definitel an upscale eatery. The cerviche was good although the passionfruit foam tendered to over-whelm the citrus flavors.It is more expensive but worth it as most others around did not look too classy

Decided to take my husband here for his birthday dinner. Concierge at American Trade made reservation, so far so good. After that, not so good. Upon entering the restaurant there is a distinct sour smell, although this odor was not present in the dining area. The server did not seem well informed, possibly she was newer and that is why...

We were two couples, heading out for a birthday celebration in Casco Viejo and Madrigal was the perfect spot. The ambience is festive and tasteful, the wine list offered many good options, and the food was creative and yummy. We are from New York City and not easily impressed, but loved everything we tasted at Madrigal and will definitely return!

This small restaurant is outstanding. I had a black sea bass ceviche to start, followed by suckling pig as my main course, with a lemon "tart" for dessert. The quality of the food and the preparation were world-class. Service was perfectly acceptable, and the chef/owner visited most of the diners (including me) and he deserves great praise. The food was... More

Madrigal is certainly one of the best restaurants for fine dining in Panama City. Me and my friends wanted a special night out and decided for Madrigal due to Trip Advisor reviews. We had a great evening. The location in the old town is very nice, the restaurant is quite cosy, the service is good but there is a "but".... More
