Wanted a typical Panamanian dinner, and that’s exactly what we got! Family of 4 and we all enjoyed our dinners. Good prices and service was great and restaurant was quaint. We’ll be back on our next visit to Panama. Best dinner of our entire vacation!! Gracias!!!

Our tour guide told us about this place so we took a taxi and came this evening. We LOVED it! The empenadas were delicious. The Aroz con pollo was also good. We also ordered two desserts, both of which were great. Our Spanish isn’t very good but the menus were in English and Spanish. There were also a lot of pictures in the menu of the food. Our waiter (Omar, I think) was great. His English was better than my Spanish and he was very helpful. We hope to come back later this week! I would totally recommend this place to others!

If you have worked in the field all day, this is your kind of place to rebuild your strengths:/), you will be stuffed.
Don’t expect anything fancy. The soups/ creams are good, recommended.
Honestly, don’t expect too much

Nothing exceptional. Acceptable local food. Good service. Very difficult access due to road works in the area.
