We where here for a business dinner and La Casa del Marisco was highly recommended by friends that live in Panama.

We ordered a couple of entrees, they were very good, ceviche de corvina, mejillones, carpaccio de atun con manchego (it didnt quite sound right tuna and manchego but it was really good), but then everything went from "very good" to "just OK" with the main dishes.

I ordered their iconic dish, Corvina a la vasca (corvina, vasca style) it was fish in a sauce with other seafood, it wasn't appealing to the eyes and when I tasted it, it was a little bland, no character, almost as it has no flavor.

Too bad this was my first visit to the restaurant, I'll sure be coming back to see if I have better luck net time.

This restaurant just feels dated. Food was only passable. There was no creativity and the presentation was lacking. With all of the other food options in PC, it feels like we wasted an evening. The restaurant itself is pretty, and the staff is pretentious but the restaurant does not live up to the hype.

Always have a lovely meal here. Staff are efficient and attentive. Wheelchair friendly. Good parking. Started are excellent, Spanish omelette, croquettes and fried baby squid were great today. The fish is excellent. Meat dishes also good - escalopines, a friend also had pigs trotters which he said were divine. Wine menu is good and white comes nice and cold. Would recommend the Albariño from Martín Codax. Desserts not that great - weakest part of meal but you are already full so not so important for us. Friendly staff. 4 starters, mains and desserts plus good wine and coffee was $220. Lovely meal in a lovely restaurant.

One of the best restaurants in Panama, the food quality is excellent and the prices are reasonable, the Aranitas (baby squid) are great.
