The interior sets the tone for an amazing exploration of the typical Panamanian food yet finished to tastes and presentation, results of a comtemporary art from the kitchen. Yes they serve patacones -not only to honour their name of course- but they are so nicely thin and gold-fried crispy and well accompanied with three house made dips of fresh vegis and cheese -I bet no-one does them alike ! Other starters had a similar carefully given look and perfumes of fresh herbs that faces around the table convinced me of their happiness. For the main plates of Panamanian culinary art two preparations of beef were served exactly griddled to our wishes, one with a cheese and herb topping, the other sliced and served with delicately combined glazed onions, tomatoes and herbs. The other two guests enjoying refined seafood and fish plates. Our side plates came as choosen from the menu with potatoes, different kinds of rice and vegetables. It really was worth to have the wine glasses filled with an Italian red wine of 2004, which I could chose out of a wide selection. This and all of the food, kindly served the way I expect it as a European frequent restaurant visitor. The choice of desserts is rather limited. I rest convinced the creative chef could think of some more proposals to make the entire menu of the dinner (or lunch) a memorable event. Because each nation deserves the chance of a decent artful representation of its food, I will return here definitely !

I read this was one of the better restaurants in a review of the city. I've probably eaten in 50 restaurants and this is one of the worst values. The Corvina was just OK, the potatos very buttery and cold, and the service just OK.
