We spent our 50th wedding anniversary here, so it had to be special, and it was!
Nothing was left to chance, from the opening of the door to the seating at the right table (no blowing from the air conditioning!) The service was kind and gracious, not aggressive. The appetizers came just on time, as did the main course, and of course their fabulous deserts!. From the meat menu, their steak was just right, not overdone
and not too rare. A memorable evening. We had lunch at Darna's the next day to see whether their dairy menu was just as good, and it was! So, from two grateful Canadians, thank you. What a wonderful surprise - a superb kosher restaurant where we never expected to find any, and then to find two that were world - class, you cannot expect more than that. Mazel Tov. We recommend it highly.

The ambience is very relaxing however the food is very pricey... mini burgers are delicious also the salmon wrapped in grape leaves. Good experience.

We celebrated my birthday with a really good meal at Lula by Darna. It’s a large restaurant allowing a quiet table if you want it. We went at 7pm and it was almost empty - the locals tend to eat much later. For non-Spanish speakers there was a menu in English. My wife took the grilled chicken breast which was nothing really special but the pumpkin soup that preceded it was excellent , as was my rib-eye steak done to perfection, one of the best I’ve ever tasted. It’s not cheap but then Panama City isn’t either. The only negative was the poor selection of (kosher) red wine. Otherwise we highly recommend Lula and are so grateful to be able to dine on a fine kosher meal in Latin America.

This restaurant came highly recommended and it met its reputation as the best Kosher meat restaurant in Panama. The rib eye steak was outstanding as well as the corvina, a local fish, albeit a little on the spicy side.
The service was very good and there was some one to translate the Spanish menu into English.

Exceptionally good meal; on par with great kosher meals in NYC. Service was fantastic (and even in English!). Empanadas de maíz, pollo curry o korma, and pollo chimichurri were superb and were affordable choices. While dessert is not listed on the menu, the popular banana crumble (with chocolate and caramel) was definitely worth the 15 minute wait!
