This place is close to the cruise ship docks which gives a good view but there wasn’t anything really special about the food that would make me have to go back a second time.

Hi, Walter! Sorry for you its coconut rice. Typical for panamanians. It's easy to cook btw. Just use coconut milk instead of water 😉
