“Delightful!!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

I went here on friday night to celebrate with two friends. From start to finish it was an absolute joy. Beautiful setting - we sat outside and it was lovely - very relaxing ambiance. Looks like a tiny place from the front but it open up and is deceptively big inside. Service was really good and the waiters were very attentive. The passion-fruit mojitos were delicious. We had chowder (more brothy than creamy), salmon tartar and ceviche to start. All very tasty and lovely presentation. Between courses they brought us little spoons of sorbet. For mains we had Hake, Risotto and Tuna. The Hake was gorgeous and the Tuna sublime. Im not a fan of risotto so I cannot comment! For dessert I had creme brulee - gorgeous. Great attention to detail. I would highly recommend La Trona - I loved it - i'll definitely be back!

“Underwhelming in everyway”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

The food was ordinary yet expensive. The waiter was snobbish and had the personality of a soap dish. They do not not sell wine by the glass. The couple next to us explained that it was a local place where you could count on seeing the same people and groups and having consistently descent food. For what they charge, I prefer great food and different faces but that's just me.

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Along with two other couples, my wife Graciela and I were introduced to this outstanding restaurant. Not only one of the best in Panama, but one of our favorites anywhere we've visited. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere breathtaking, and the food delectable in every aspect. Most surely, we will return when in Panama again. Just thinking about the next trip has my mouth watering to go to La Trona again. Thanks to owners of La Trona for this unique experience.

“lovely dinner”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We had the private room for a very nice dinner. We had a group of 14 and it was nice to sit around the big round table and enjoy the great food and atmosphere. The room was filled with walls of wine of all types. We tried the sea bass and the filet, both were wonderful, the sauce on the sea bass was delicious. The service was excellent, the servers worked very hard to make sure all our needs were met and taken care of. Great meal, great location and great service.

“Excellent food in Panama”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

This place seems a little undiscovered, as we ate there twice and it was not busy either time. Excellent food and wines-- the best restaurant we ate at in Panama City. Price was also very reasonable for the quality of food and wine we had.
