I stopped here with my fiancee on way to our hotel. The place was clean. Service was good. The food was standard Panama food and very reasonably priced. Had fried yuca and patacones with chorizo and Panama BEER.

Busy Saturday night with wait, traditional Panamanian seafood-focussed cuisine, musicians. Requested water and mixed drinks; water was reluctant to come to the table. Server disappeared (on break?). Our minimal yet adequate Spanish was seen as an inconvenience, not as an invitation to break out some...More
