A good selection of local food and the prices are reasonable however, the service is lacking. We had a late lunch and the restaurant was crowded/busy and not enough servers working. Nice views of Panama City.

As main dish we had a fried corvina fish with patacones and yuca. It was really good and big, also came with a side dish... More

We were a group BUT we waited almost an hour for the first meal to come out. There were several meals that didn't come out when "all" the meals came out of the kitchen. My husband and I were two that didn't get our meal in the first group. After waiting another 30 plus minutes before the missing meals started... More

I guess if you're wanting a bar/party experience - this would be the place for you. We had a large group for dinner & was seated near the large booming speakers. Some of our group enjoyed their meals, but I did NOT. First mine had to be sent back after a bird landed on my plate while the server was... More

We loved this restaurant! The waiter spoke some English and was very attentive! The food was great, lots of choices. Many locals eating there so you know it is good. Very reasonable, great views of the Causeway, entertainment was a really nice touch as well.

The food was deep fried battered everything apart from the salad. But the drinks were cold and it was a hot day, unfortunately there were no other places to choose from to eat. Construction going on right next to restaurant

We had fish, all of which was well prepared and very fresh. The person who took us there said that this is a popular restaurant with the locals, so you know the food will always be good. The prices were very reasonable. Well worth the scenic drive.

The ambiance of the restaurant is really nice. Besides the spectacular view of Panama City skyline, the wind adds a pleasant element to the experience. Food wise, it is good. Nothing remarkable but good. I had te jumbo lobster with creole sauce. I expected something spicier but it was slightly more to the sweet side, nonetheless tasteful. Service is slow... More
