“Outstanding”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

This was our second trip to Fanny's and it was absolutely delicious. The menu is quite large and she has an "executive" menu which is drink, salad and entrée for one set price. Well worth it and her smile is wonderful

“The Best”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

Fanny's Terrace Bistro is absolutely charming. Fanny and Luis are great hosts, so welcoming, and the food is absolutely superb. We were lucky enough to be there the day it opened and go back each time we come to Panama. The steak is the best I have ever had.

“Great people, great food”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We were lucky enough to be staying just a 10-minute walk down the road, so that we could go back for a second meal at Fanny's. They were willing to make all kinds of variations of their basic menu, and everything that came out of their tiny kitchen was fantastic. Fresh ingredients perfectly seasoned. We had to control ourselves to save room for dessert: cheesecake topped with passion fruit/strawberry sauce. Yum! But the best part might have been the conversations we enjoyed with our friendly chefs, Fanny and Luis. We left feeling we'd made new friends. If you are anywhere near Cerro Punta, don't miss the opportunity to try Fanny's Terrace Bistro. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Wow what a find and a great recommendation! The amazing family fed us wonderfully, cared for us so warmly and made marvelous tea with herbs and ingredients from their garden. It was more than incredible meals we enjoyed there, it was the whole experience: the family, their talent with food, the freshness and flavouring of everything were just fantastic. This is truly creative and amazing food. Can't wait to come back for more of your cooking later this year, Fanny and family!!

“A true gem”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

When our good friend who lives in nearby Volcan suggested we dine at Fanny's, we promptly agreed and were truly delighted. The charming cabin is below the road, perched over the river with wonderful scenery during daylight hours. But it was four of us for dinner on a Wednesday night, and since we called ahead she agreed enthusiastically to feed us. And what a meal! Fanny's menu is the definition of the freshest form of farm to table one can find, especially in Panama. The tiny lettuces and arugula that regaled the marvelous salads were picked an hour earlier from the restauran't's garden; it is onion harvesting season in the highlands of Chiriqui so we ordered the sublime cream of onion soup for starters. Yum! Chicken breast with mustard sauce or with wine and herbs was wonderful. So sorry we had no room for desert. And last but least, our hostess and chef has to be the most gracious, warm and capable restauranteur in Panama, bar none. She and her partner and son, the smiling server, made our evening, magical in this true gem, and all for a very reasonable tag. Kudos all around.
