Reasonably priced restatuarants in El Cangrejo area?

I will be staying in the Cangrejo area and am wondering how much I should expect to spend for meals. I would like to try some local cuisine and dont really need anything too fancy. However, we might like one or two nice dinners while we are there. Is it possible to eat for $20 per person? We dont drink so no problem there. I read somewhere that there is a pretty good Argentinian restaurant in this neighborhood.

Any suggestions? Gracias

You can eat virtually anywhere for under $20 per person if you don't drink.

For good Panamamian food check out:

El Trapiche on Via Argentina

Costa Azul across from the Maririott(not technically Cangrejo, just across Via Espana)

Take a walk down Via Argentina - counless choices

And there are a number of hole in the wall places where you can get chicken & rice for $3.50 and it is pretty good.

Thank you! That sounds great. I am looking forward to this trip. We hired a driver to take us to El Valle Anton and then to the beach. If time permits, we'd like to go to Tabago Island. Of course we will visit the canal and el Casco Viejo.

There are lots of places to eat along Via Argentina in no particular order:

Angels (with a Taverna in the back)

Greenhouse

The Dulce Coffee House

Taberna 21 (great tapas and often live music on weekends)

Pavo Real (pub grup - tries to be an English pub)

Grillos (had a nice hamburger there once)

Los Venezolanos (Venezuelan dishes)

Mrs Mendozas (TexMex)

New York Bagel Cafe (just by the Einstein Head monument-behind Subway)

Nadwanis (1/2 block off Via Argentina - great Indian food)

That should keep you busy for a while!!!!

Cheers,

Andrew

Thank you, Andrew. I was wondering if there is an Argentine restaurant nearby or will Jimmy's do just fine? Thanks again.
