To me, this is one of the premier steakhouses in Panama City and to top it off, this restaurant is kosher as well.
It has an excellent menu with a nice bar in the front.
Service was excellent each of the three times we went.
I met the owner there. You could see her concern for each of her guests.
I truly enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it to everyone.

Our visiting friends were so excited to find a Kosher restaurant during the holidays.
Then the truth hit - no chilled white wine, corned beef sandwich served with over cooked, dried out, day-old sliced roast beef, chicken shawarma that was absolutely without taste, dry and day-old at least.
Service cannot be rated as there was none.

All-in-all a terrible experience that we - and we hope you as a reader - will never subject ourselves to again.

I was a bit down on Lula but not anymore. On my previous two visits to Panama, several of the menu items were not available. Now with a new menu and updated and expanded offerings, Lula has earned my confidence. A great perfectly grilled steak, fresh fish and bone marrow with a creative twist, Lula by Darna leave your mouth watering. Fresh bread starters and great always great service, Lula is a Panamanian gem for the locals and travelers looking for a great Kosher meal on the road.

The ambience is that of a kosher Manhattan restaurant (though it was very empty). The food was OK. But they charge even more then NYC prices. We had the Cowboy Steak, $80 and it wasn't as large as you would expect for that price
The staff is borderline friendly and a little weak on English.
Also, not very accommodating. We bought the $80 steak, Fish entree, appetizer, and drinks (cocktail, 2 beers) and when we asked for some more bread, they gave it to us and charged us an extra $3, I never had that happen to us in NYC
