Dining out is expensive in Panama City, but the Tantalo Restaurant was better priced then most for lunch. We had to ask for the alternate, "executive" menu, which we learned about from others. Well worth the effort. Portions were good and the food was fresh and tasty.

Nice and different. I have only been there at night and it's a little bit noisy for older people. Great food but a little spicy or hot if you like it. Young people. Nice place for a nice dinner and a couple of drinks.

Another restaurant that fits in with the international ambitions of the city. Sushi nice, quinoa salad, coco chicken, cheese fondue. All good but not good budget.

The menu has a very broad offer of plates. The ambient is very nice. You can go for brunfh, lunch or dinner. Even if you just want to have drinks, it is a great place to go.

Four of us came for tapas - two are meat eaters and two (us) stuck to vegetarian tapas. We enjoyed the tomato babaganoush - a robust, thick sauce for ladling onto pita bread. The mushrooms anita were very saucy and should have been accompanied with bread. The roasted cheese in tomato sauce was okay, but under-seasoned. The quinoa salad with... More

Great restaurant in Casco Viejo! The stuffed calamari and Mojitos are amazing. Staff is very friendly and attentive. They also have a really cool rooftop bar. This restaurant is highly rated by the locals. The art work throughout the restaurant is like no other place in the city. Stop by if you are in the area!! You won't regret it!!

Try breakfast omelette and shrimp with papaya. Service good. English menus. Good place to people watch. Place goes nuts at night. Probably Casco's party central.

My husband and I went here on our last night in Panama having read so many good reviews. Unfortunately, this was not our experience. Extremely slow service, watered down drinks and for our food - 1 dish was inedible (flambeed cheese that was never lit and soaked in vodka) , 1 was tasteless (mushrooms covered in hardened parmeson) and the...

Slightly above average prices for good quality food in Panama City. But the rooftop is priceless, especially at night
