My favorite restaurant in Panama. Excellent menu choice. An excellent use of panamanian native ingredients and plates. Great Wine Selection and Beverage. The quality of the food is always constant. Excellent service. I go very often with my family and friends. The place is just nice and beautiful.

The quality of the food is top notch. The staff is attentive. There is a good space between tables. It is a good restaurant for family gathering. In our... More
