Good selection of craft beers. Free samples. Limited food menu and it sometimes takes awhile for food to arrive. Small portions. Also have domestic beers that are less expensive the the craft beers. Indoor and outdoor seating.

This was amazing, but not in a positive way. When you order a 7 USD Mojito and you ask to change the Bacardi Rum into the local Abuelo Rum the price will go up to 14 USD a Mojito. For a not really special pup...More

I was at Istmo for beer only and cannot comment on the food. The craft beer was very good and my favorite was the Chiriquí (copper colored, maybe a bock). I also liked very much the atmosphere: a bohemian vibe that reminded me of college...More
