Really helpful staff, very pleasant and accomodating though English is at present a challenge to them. Excellent food and very popular with Panamanian families. Owners making a particular effort to make us welcome. Would recommend this restaurant with every confidence.

We walked and saw this place and tried it. Chicken was excellent as well as soup and rest of the plates. Service was fine, personable and the manager was very accommodating to my dietary issues. A decent place to eat!
