My vote goes to El Moro. Just got back Saturday and had a great meal once again at El Moro. I love the shrimp on the wire, garlic shrimp and the breaded shrimp.
For your remaining three nights, my recommendation would be:
Del Sur Empanadas
Yeah, Del Sur has good meat...it's not just empanadas. We like Especias too.
Your first two spots are a good place to start from. I'd add Kinta/Kondesa, a Taquiera (Los Otates, El Foco, El Pique, Los Sera, etc), and maybe someplace more lively like Wet Wendy's, French Corner, Money Bar, Mosiacoz, etc to keep things interesting.
Casa Mission would probably be the place that best fits what your son and husband are looking for.
Especias is a nice atmosphere out on the balcony, but I have never been terribly impressed with the food. I think the top rating has much more to do with patrons affection for Adrian (he is a charming guy) than anything else.

Enjoy, you really can't go wrong with most of these, and you do have two good ones picked out to start.
P.S. Also throw in the Blue Angel Resort restaurant next door if walking by.
LMAO. Thanks Art!
Another vote for LaCocay. If you want good steaks, many of the places mentioned really dont have those. La Cocay does.
I have to agree about Especias. I think the big draw is Adrian--more than the food. Agree , he is a charming guy and that often goes a long way in the restaurant business.
Oldad nailed it with El Pique.. Get the Frijoles Especial...
Yeah...el pique. I like the bean soup and pork chops.
