We have seen the hotel rooms, each of which is uniquely designed and fun. We have not stayed in the rooms. We have dined and been to the rooftop bar, both of which are great. See also the Tantalo reviews for the kitchen/dining area. It's an elegant yet fun, "nice casual" atmosphere with many delicious choices...vegetarian and many others. Delicious...

We stayed at the Tantalo on a previous trip. We loved it and came back for a second visit. Sadly we wont be going back. The staff are great and the food is good. The rooftop bar has a great vibe. The rooms are nice but so dimly lit that it is impossible to read even when next to the...

Great Casco Viejo´s restaurant and rooftop bar. At the restaurant had this delicious Tāntalo's Ceviche in a very modern restaurant - very nice paintings ont the wall, and up the rooftop, great drinks and reggaeton with an amazing view of the old city.

The food here was excellent and the drinks were perfectly made and unique!!! The tapas style gave us lots of options and tried 6-7 dishes. Pulled pork was so flavorful and the shrimp was amazing. The only bad part of the visit was the electricity went out and the waitress said she had to manually do the credit card --...

It's a great bar with awesome views of the old as well as the new parts of the city. Rooftop area is cool, they have some really cool Panamanian rum cocktails. Bar bites are delicious too. Overall a great night !

Stayed at this lovely restored hotel in the old city. Absolutely charming. Excellent menu. Courteous, albeit slow service, especially for larger groups. Mastery of Spanish is critical in order to communicate effectively. Loved the setting, the décor and the ambiance. Would dine and stay here again, no worries.

Enter s d find the elevator to the roof. Go for the views. The music, staff, and drinks were average at best. Music was loud and kinda messed with the experience. Mostly locals at the bar. The VIP area was silly. But the views!!! Wow!!! Photo attacked is of palace.

We made reservation on the rooftop bar and had food and drinks. This is a must visit place in casco viejo Panama. Food was very good and so were the drinks. View of Panama sky line together with nice musical background give it a great atmosphere.

We visited Casco Viejo just to stroll around and chill. We ended up at Tantalo. We sat at the bar where Fernando took suberb care of us! I ordered a Watermelon Mojito from him. When I told him that I loved it, he recomended the Passion fruit Mojito. And man was he right! We took a mixed platter for snacks....

We had high hopes when we booked this hotel due to all the reviews and guidance from some friends who had visit Panama City. Prior to our arrival, I emailed Tantalo to book several tours and make some restaurant reservations as we were coming during the holidays and I wanted to be sure that a) restaurants were open and b)...
