Good food, not the best you've ever tried. Service is really bad so be patient. For the price I'd had expected something better. However food might save the day.

My favorite food in Panama is pulpo (grilled octopus) so the local families typically suggest a restaurant that offers this dish. Angel was without question the best restaurant I've been to in Panama City, from the food to the atmosphere to the service!

We were a group of 12 came for a gathering and family re-union. The starters were very peculiar tasteful seafood choices. I haven't seen that back in Europe. Main dishes were never disappointing. Our taste buds were dancing Flamingo out of joy! The service was amazing. I was not surprised with overall great experience when I realised the chef is... More

We had grouper and red snapper that were cooked to perfection. The bread and butter were also in high quality. We had no complaints at all on food. The ambiance was nice too. The price; however, was away too high, and the service did not match for the price I paid. We had to sit for 10 extra minutes until... More

It's 2nd visit, and enjoyed more than first. This time, we took seafoods as apetizer, then main was grilled piglet that is here's recommendation. Squid with its ink's fried rice was great also. Atmosphere is high stylish. Recommendable.

Trying for a traditional Spanish ambience. I found it pretentious and over-priced. (Though perhaps my view coloured by having spent time in Madrid recently).I suspect that it is the sort of place to go if trying to show off to your invitees. There seemed an excess of waiting staff, who hovered around, too obtrusively. My starter was champinones with jamon... More

Even during the day, gentlemen must were pants - not shorts. It looked very pricey anyway so we were happy to move on.
