still the best place to go in Panama, the best baby back ribs I've eaten. If you're a fan of tomato soup dont miss it Great place to go with your family, specially if you have a little kids.

What a fantastic meal!! The corvina with almonds was amazing and the beef was delicious! We started with the Colombian empanadas and the ceviche. Both were amazing. The service was great and the food came out quickly. I highly recommend the restaurant.
