The food was good to average for the restaurants in Casco area. The show was a lot of fun even for an old guy. Show times are 8:30 on Thurs, Fri and Sat. 2:00 on Sun. Plan on a show day.

A pleasant comfortable meal, with fluent-English speakers to help select menu items, choose sauces and such. Satisfying, not fancy, not expensive.

This is a touristic restaurant but it gives you a nice ambiance with all the diablicos sucos, traditional meals, and music and dances in the evening. Though for tourists, this is a must-do in the old town.

The owner Juan geilo and his staff especially (our waiter) made us feel like family and we're extremely hospitable and fun. Best Panamanian food by far! We loved it so much, we are here two days in a row 😃 don't miss the dance entertainers on the weekends 💃🏽

The second time, I ate the famous Ropa Vieja, which is really tasty. The place is greatly decorated and the waiters are nice and helpful. It is a pity it... More

Visited after recommendation. Good location and interesting decor. Trying hard to be 'authentic' but very much set up to be a tourist trap. So the atmosphere seemed a bit artificial. Food was ok, but not if you don't like platanos and don't want to pay US $25-30 for a main course (which seemed pretty steep compared to the prices in... More
