Seven of us had a wonderful dinner in the casual, attractive dining room. Everybody loved the skirt steak empanadas in the appetizer menu, and as main course the superb squid ink black risotto and the grouper were the stars. The service was prompt and very professional and unobtrusive. Overall a most pleasant and fairly reasonably priced dinner.

This is one of the best restaurants in town, starter dishes such as Passion fruit mayo-Jumbo shrimp, puff pastry layered goat slices, savory clams, sweetbreads infused, are to die for. I can actually just go and eat all the starters. The main menu is well rounded, great risottos, arguably the best meat in Panama, and for seafood lovers, great fish... More

The risotto in squid ink is great. I'm really sorry I'm not the one who ordered it. After a few years of constant disappointment with risotto in other countries, it was an excellent surprise!

I've eaten here on three separate occasions, on two different trips to Panama City. The more-or-less negative review here demonstrates that even a wonderful restaurant like Casuale can have a bad day. My experiences have been overwhelmingly positive. The atmosphere is smart and stylish, and the service, in my experience, warm and attentive. The food is good, but not entirely... More

This is a stylish, well appointed pleasant restaurant. That serves mediocre food ( dry grouper with inconsistent, affectless service.) On April 6th, 2009 our last day in Panama, I came across this charming looking restaurant with my partner and a local owner of a bed and breakfast. The lunch bill came to $71.88. We returned to Massachusetts today April 7th... More

October 10, 2008, We were in Panama City for a week and stayed in the old city which was very interesting. A lot of work is being done there, so there are a lot of neat photo opportunities. The buildings range from completely renovated to facades and shells, and somewhere in between. We were lucky that we rented an apartment... More
