We went for dinner, the view is excellent you can have your food in the restaurant or in a table near the ocean (three meters or less), so the view, sounds and breeze are a must. We had four fishes with plantains, rice and fried yuca. Very good flavor and the hot sauce was mild and had a natural flavor.... More

This place is outside Portobelo near Scuba Portobello - I had the garlic shrimp ($13) for lunch and it was really good. I think there is one menu for lunch and dinner. It is on the water with a pleasant view and tour guides stop here (so it must be good!).

Loving Portobelo. Its off the beaten track in Panama. The fort is great. Awesome little town. The food is good here, service very personal. As this is central america you enjoy the most if you bring time

The restaurant was recommended to us by a local worker. When we got there, we were positively impressed with the place: it is right by the sea, very green and full of birds. The place wasn't packed, but the waitress told us that we would have to wait for about half an hour for our dishes. Since we were hungry... More

Totally recommend sitting downstairs near the water. We went to Portobelo just to eat at this place (it was highly recommended by the locals). When we went, the langostinos were not available, so we had the corvine fish strips (deditos de corvina). With the freshly squeezed lime and home made hot sauce, they were so good that we ended up...

The coconut rice was very good, as was the lemonaide. very beautiful view, but felt a bit tooo rustic. bathrooms needed some cleaning as well. again, we all had a... More

Two weeks ago, I stopped in with the family. Things had definitely changed. THe unsmiling waitress offered no menu, just recited what was... More

We stopped here for a late lunch. As a group of 8 with no reservations we may have taxed this small kitchen because the food and service were very slow even by local standards. Food quality was also not as good as other restaurants nearby. I would rank this restaurant behind several other local options (including La Torre, El Castillo... More
