Don Chacho Grill is just always there and normally open. The food is well prepared and always tasty. The service is sometimes lacking. Can sit in open air or the air conditioned room. The prices are a little steep, however, that is why this restaurant...More

We ordered the mix grill and what we got were probably 4 days old left overs not even decently warmed up. I am really surprised that this place is still in business.

We were headed by Coronado and wanted a place to eat lunch and tried Don Chachos for the first time. We had the Rotissary chicken and the "steak and shrimp" along with the house vegetables which were voluminous and tasty (with a little salt added)....More

We went looking for authentic flavor and charm and Don Chacho Grill delivered. We sat outside near the fire where they were whole roasting a dozen or so chickens. Excellent meal and a nice value.

Whatever you do, DON'T leave without trying the rotisserie chicken with chimichurri. You will not regret it. Add some yuca and patacones (fried planteens). You can thank me later ;) Oh! they make a nice sangria as well

Nice quiet environment and good service. Nice small salads and wonderful sides. My wife really liked the Sangria, Basic wine list with good pricing focusing on wines from Argentina and Chile. Will definitely be back, very reasonable price for the quality of food

I could not find any reviews for any restaurants at Coronado Beach Panama, This area has many restaurants and more being built as the area is growing. This is also a tourist area and Coronado Beach is on the travel forum. I could not right an address as I could not find one but it is on the main road going into Coronado Beach. Thanks
