On entering the restaurant it was full, so we knew we could be waiting a while. The main wAiter said 15 mins for a table please get a drink at the bar. We were not acknowledged for nearly 10 mins by the one token barman who in fairness was run ragged poor chap., the main wAiter saw this and just carried on swanning around the place doing nothing. We eventually got a drink, and then went to our table. It was a bit of a struggle as our Spanish isn't great. Luckily another waiter stepped in to help and translate, which was a first in Panama. We had the asparagus with parmesan, balsamic and egg, it was nice enough and the yellow fin tuna carpaccio, after just visiting Japan it was pretty tasteless and non descript. For mains we had the pork chop with red cabbage and apple, my husband liked it a lot, and I had the seafood pasta, it came in a paper parcel, and was tasty enough, but maybe a little less time in the oven and it wouldn't have Been as dry. Overall not bad at all, I wasn't blown awAy, prices were pretty good, wine was nice, and the atmosphere wAs bustling. The same few wAiters were doing the work whilst others stood and watched. The paper questionnaire at the end is old hat and needs to go. If you want to know what people think, read tripadvisor.

We ate there twice during our 2 week stay in Panama. It was within walking distance of our hotel. My husband has a gluten allergy and they were very accommodating. We ended up with the same waiter "Frank" both times. He remembered us and our "allergy". We had wonderful meals and great service. Will definitely be on our agenda on return trips to the area. Reservation is highly recommended. They get very busy after 7:30 pm. Only suggestion would be that I wish the menu had a little more English on it. But most items had an English translation under it. But it is a Spanish speaking country ;)

I have been to this restaurant in multiple ocassions. Food is very good. Tadty, well presented. Pricy, however service was extremely slow and clearly not committed to the place. We asked for tabasco, it never arrived. We asked for wine with the food, had to ask the same waiter 4 times. So sorry the quality is failing.

Expertly prepared and professionally served fresh food in a warm and inviting restaurant. Low ceilings, soft jazz background music, garden decor, nice bar, short, safe walk from lots of hotels.
