We went to the rooftop in the late afternoon and had some drinks. it was a great place to relax and watch the sun go down. We then went downstairs to have dinner. The restaurant was clean and the prices were okay. I had the Indian butter chicken dish. It was one of the better meals I had during my...

The hotel is nice. The food is pretty good and the location is good. But one of our friends recommended it because of the roof top bar and we never were able to take advantage of it. The first night there we were too tired after a long flight from Europe so did not go up. The next two nights...

First about the room. It is great! The artistic touch in the entire hotel is also in the rooms. It has also a very good bed. The problem is the noise. It's a very busy part of town at night. When the music on the rooftop is also very loud...you can imagine that sleeping is a problem. Not very good...especially...

We have seen the hotel rooms, each of which is uniquely designed and fun. We have not stayed in the rooms. We have dined and been to the rooftop bar, both of which are great. See also the Tantalo reviews for the kitchen/dining area. It's an elegant yet fun, "nice casual" atmosphere with many delicious choices...vegetarian and many others. Delicious...

We stayed at the Tantalo on a previous trip. We loved it and came back for a second visit. Sadly we wont be going back. The staff are great and the food is good. The rooftop bar has a great vibe. The rooms are nice but so dimly lit that it is impossible to read even when next to the...

Great Casco Viejo´s restaurant and rooftop bar. At the restaurant had this delicious Tāntalo's Ceviche in a very modern restaurant - very nice paintings ont the wall, and up the rooftop, great drinks and reggaeton with an amazing view of the old city.

The food here was excellent and the drinks were perfectly made and unique!!! The tapas style gave us lots of options and tried 6-7 dishes. Pulled pork was so flavorful and the shrimp was amazing. The only bad part of the visit was the electricity went out and the waitress said she had to manually do the credit card --...

It's a great bar with awesome views of the old as well as the new parts of the city. Rooftop area is cool, they have some really cool Panamanian rum cocktails. Bar bites are delicious too. Overall a great night !

Stayed at this lovely restored hotel in the old city. Absolutely charming. Excellent menu. Courteous, albeit slow service, especially for larger groups. Mastery of Spanish is critical in order to communicate effectively. Loved the setting, the décor and the ambiance. Would dine and stay here again, no worries.
