If you like Spanish cuisine, this is a good place to go in Panama. The gambas al ajillo are very good. There are other great items on the menu and the service is excellent. A bit pricey, but worth it.

I was in Panama City for only a couple of days, and wanted to have seafood which is my favorite. I decided on another "restaurant" that ended up being a tavern that did not look very safe from the outside, so I asked my driver to recommend a place instead. He told me about Via Argentina, which has many restaurants... More

Business visitor group. Good atmosphere. Good service. Food was good but definitely overpriced relative to other good Panama restaurants. Good for quiet dinner.

Good food, not the best you've ever tried. Service is really bad so be patient. For the price I'd had expected something better. However food might save the day.

My favorite food in Panama is pulpo (grilled octopus) so the local families typically suggest a restaurant that offers this dish. Angel was without question the best restaurant I've been to in Panama City, from the food to the atmosphere to the service!
