Went at night, but the view must be better by day. We had corvina with patacones, it was the whole fish, well cooked and savory. I felt it a little salted, but my wife found it ok, and very good. At night you should have a sweater, since it's really windy. It's a good place to have a beer, relax... More

(first time the restaurant was out of pargo) Another great view on a full moon night. Probably could seen the wind farm red lights in... More

Service was the best, friendly and very professional. The view from the terrace is awesome, with a nice breeze. Their menu is first class, the best in Azuero...recommend that my friends make this their "meeting" place. Mirador even has a "Ham" radio to talk to the world! I plan to be a regular customer...see you there! FlacoBob

I really enjoyed this restaurant, the seafood was fantastic, and the prices were great! The view is also very nice. I highly recommend the fried fish with patacones.

Wonderful seafood, a great view of Chitre and beyond and very attentive service. What more is there? We greatly enjoyed our lunch and got to experience plenty of locals enjoying a very unique location. We know why this place is so popular with the locals: Good food, GREAT service and good value.

The shrimp and mixed seafood in red sauce were great! The mixed seafood plate was especially generous. $1 beers topped it off. Really nice view. Good value for good seafood.

This was our 4th time at this location but the 1st time it was actually open. It has become our new discovery to replace Los Alacranes (our former favorite that has decayed). The location shown on the map is TOTALLY inaccurate! the actual location is to the West. You go on the Circunvalacion de Chitre direction to La Arena and... More

This is one of the best viewpoints in Chitré. Local food, good service, friendly atmosphere. Wife had the seafood soup...more like a stew, but it was delicious! I had the fried Covina, also delicious. In all the times we have eaten here I have never had a bad plate of food. Not a fancy restaurant, but who cares. The prices... More

A car or taxi is required to get here but the view alone is worth it. Great food with a limited menu. That alright as they are good at what they do.
