This is a costal restaurant and has good seafood selection. The staff suggested me a grilled fish in garlic sauce. It was quite delicious. The location is well suited facing the water and breezy. Nice place for brunch away from the bustling Panama City.

My husband and I eat here occasionally and the food is delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the staff are friendly. It has a great mom and pop place vibe. Look forward to eating here again.

Laid back restaurant. Great service and food. Relatively small portions but very tasty. Wait staff is not bilingual.

The restaurant has a nice casual atmosphere. Views are great. But the food was the highlight! I had the filet in garlic sauce and my husband had filet in Creole sauce. The fish was perfectly cooked and the sauce was flavorful.

Friendly, mostly attentive service (one star lost because I had to track down a waiter for our bill). The food was excellent and reasonably priced. We'll be back.

We stayed at the Beach House before catching the ferry to Cotadora. It was off season and pouring rain, so we went next door to Mi Ranchito. I am glad we did. We got the "seafood casserole" which sounds strange in English but it is...More
