We had eaten at Don Patacon in the past and the food was actually quite good. Not sure what may have happened but it has closed and there is now a sports bar in its place.

Service need improve and menu must be changes. There is a lot of disconnected food in the menu. Another point is the chairs and tables...small tables, not confortable chairs.

The interior sets the tone for an amazing exploration of the typical Panamanian food yet finished to tastes and presentation, results of a comtemporary art from the kitchen. Yes they serve patacones -not only to honour their name of course- but they are so nicely...More
