Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 March 2014

We just returned from a fabulous meal at El Meson Suizo. This restaurant is located right on the Pan American Highway, just west of the road to El Valle. The building is very clean and open with a high bohio design. We had delicious meals of schnitzel with swiss potatoes or salad, sausages with onions and potatoes, and spaetzle with bacon, onion and cheese. The service was very good and the owner/chef came out to greet us and explain the menu specials to us (in english). They also had a choice of foreign beers and a nice wine list. All in all, would highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

A must go to restaurant! Call ahead to make sure they have red snapper or tuna. The english speaking owner/chef will help you decide if you can't. Meals are a very good portion for the price. The desserts are out of this world! Make this a stop next time you're in the area.

Was a little difficult to find but well worth it. It is a few k north of San Carlos on right side of Panamerican Hwy. The Swiss chef was very personable. Perhaps the best meal we had in Panama. Prices were reasonable and sauces were outstanding. Unique setting, which resembles a tropical, open air building with thatched roof. You can't go wrong.

We visited this restaurant in July after a friend suggested we try it. It is a bit hard to find... it is not in Panama City as it says here. It is on the Panamerican Highway after San Carlos and just passed the entrance to El Valle. We were at a nearby beach resort so we decided to go. I'm not too good at details, but in a few words: it was one of the best meals we have ever had! The place is open and inviting. Every meal we ordered was superb (especially the seafood soup and the goulash, ohh and the homemade mango cake yummmm). Although many locals may considered it expensive; it truly is very cheap compared to any restaurant in Panama City nor to mention the States where we could've paid 3 times as much if not more. Don't hesitate to visit this place, it is well worth it!

We had dinner here in early June just after the new chef took over. The food was excellent! We had thai calamari to start and the filled avacado, followed by the fish of the day, (i think it was red snapper), and langostinos (small lobster). The sauces and flavor combinations were right on the money and presentation was nice too
Childrens menu is a real menu, not junk food-We liked that.
Highly recommended!!
