We had a fabulous dinner at La Posta. Went based on a NY Times review that was a few years old, wasn't sure if it was still up to snuff, but it totally exceed our expectations. We had crabcakes to start, two fish mains, and two desserts - including the Tres Leches. Everything was absolutely delicious, cocktails too. The fish... More

I had booked this restaurant because of Trip Advisor reviews, and it was well worth our anticipation. Great service, very nice ambiance and excellent food. The owner was present and he welcomed us. Highly recommended!

We eat here often and love it. The food, service and ambience are all great! It's conveniently located in Bella Vista near several upscale hotels, and has really beautiful, tropical decor We highly recommend it for lunch or dinner with friends, or romantic dinner date.

Food OK Nothing special. The food was prepared well and the staff very nice. Menu was a bit odd but that could be due to our taste.

La Posta is one of the best restaurants in Panama City. Their Risotto is worth the trip. Centrally located and on premise parking available. Decent wine selection too. Prices are on the higher end but worth every penny!

Love the ambience, is a great place to meet with friends for lunch and food is delicious. This restaurant is well known around local people, specially business people that work around the area. Its reputation is impeccable among panamenians.

Very friendly staff and very accommodating. The menu has a variety of dishes and everyone enjoyed their main course. The only comment is that the pasta portions were on the small side.

After reading previous TA reviews, we came here Christmas Eve with very solid expectations. The restaurant itself has a lovely ambience, and the service was friendly and efficient. However, our meals were for the most part just so-so. Still good and tasty but not particularly memorable. My husband had the Christmas Eve meal plan (starter of seafood salad, beef wellington,...

They were touted on TripAdvisor as a top place in Panama City. It was good but less than expected. Service was slow, while the drinks were good. Wine list was limited. The seafood soup was the highlight of my meal as an appetizer. Main was a pork Milanese. Others had seafood which was again good but nothing stands out.
