Staff is very friendly but slow. Food was as expected and very delicious. From some tables a good view on the skyline. Live music was really nice. Not the cheapest restaurant,but served good food.

After a visit to the BioMuseo, we walked to Pencas. We choose a seat on the sprawling balcony overlooking Panama Bay. We were immediately welcomed and seated. Our waiter was eager and helpful. That earned Pencas two stars. When the food arrived, we were all...More
