It is very hard to find a spot as perfect as the Panamonte in all of Panama. It has everything a traveler like me requires: charm, comfort, excellent personalized service and wonderful cuisine. I went there a couple of night ago for an overnight and it was just that, perfect. I started at the bar with their famous El Salto cocktail, just after the fireplaces were lit and the warm fires beckoned.
The handsome dining room did not attract me because I was alone, and so I chose instead to have dinner at the bar, which management promptly and courteously provided. The food was delicious (a lovely mesclun and goat cheese salad with lardons followed by a hefty portion of corvina (sea bass) with fresh mushrooms and thyme. I asked for vegetables instead of the mashed potatoes and what a treat to eat organically grown fresh veggies in Panama, grilled just so with good olive oil and herbs. Breakfast the next morning was also wonderful.
My single room was comfy, the bed a bit too hard for my taste, but everything else was right.
I can not wait to find another occasion to return.
