Returned to Maito, where I celebrated my 70th birthday in February, for lunch today with dear friends, Francisco and Yarielkys. We enjoyed salads with our salmon and beef entrees and finished off the meal with tres leches con Baileys, Volcan chocolate, tea and cappuccino. Another...More

I've done the legwork: This was one of the best tasting menus I've had in the world. First, the restaurant isn't obvious to locate from the street, so fortunately our driver knew what to look for. The restaurant appears small, but inside has an open...More

After a dinner at well rated Madrigal yesterday and Maito tonight, I came to the conclusion that so-called refined food is not a great idea in Panama. They just don't have the culture - and probably not either access to the right ingredients. Once again,...More

Maito is the only restaurant in Panama that made Latin America's Top 50 Restaurant list. The food is good and eclectic, it's fairly reasonably priced, and the service is good. If it's not too hot out I like to sit outside, however it's very nice...More

Five of us had a nice family dinner here. Food was interesting, traditional Panamanian--which means it used fresh ingredients and a variety of flavors since Panama has many cultures. We shared a number of the appetizers, which were flavorful, and the main dishes were good...More

I chose this restaurant because it was on the 50 best list for south america. We ate at this restaurant on a Friday night in February, prior to Carnival starting. Perhaps the chef was not in because the tasting menu was inconsistent for the 4...More

I made a reservation 3 weeks before and when I arrived in the restaurant, it was closed. I don't understand why they didn't notice me. I went to Madrigal instead. Great choice.

I am not 100% certain, but I believe Maito is closed on Sunday. Things may have changed, so call. I was there on a Monday.
