We stumbled upon this little place while we walked around old town, place was great, food was amazing, we had the pollo con arroz.( chicken and rice) with fried plantains. It was so good, we went there for 2 days straight!

I was looking for authentic Panamanian food and I found it. Very good service and food. I had a ceviche and a flan.

I had the traditional Panamanian dish called Ropa vieja. The rice and the meat were cooked to perfection. I don't usually care for fried plantains. I find them tasteless, but not here. They were fried, crispy thin, and salted. They had a lot of flavor....More

The food was awesome, especially the "arroz con pollo" (rice with chicken) and the lemonade with "hierbabuena ". Service was good even when the restaurant was very busy.

Food was OK, but then a waiter brought us the bill with already marked 20% tip and no pen to change that. Felt coerced and the experience was totally ruined. I would stay away from this tourist trap if I were you.More
