You can not beat the views from this place or the quality of the food. The service could use some improvement, very slow and orders wrong.

We had lunch here and ordered the Panamanian platter; which was enough to feed 3-4 persons and consists of fried everything. All different bites such as chicken, empanadas, bananacookies, fishfingers, yuka, sausage tasted sort of the same. Orangejuice was not fresh. Would not recommend.

Went here because it looked busy and was next to our hotel. Food was pretty average and the margarita we ordered tasted nothing like it should. There are plenty of better places within walking distance

Worth the trip, however you get here. My partner and I decided to rent bikes from Moses Bicycles (1 block from BioMuseo). While the weather was very hot and humid, we had an enjoyable experience crossing the causway (although drenched in sweat). Please note, Moses...More
