Excellent service with very charming staff. I ordered the giant prawns (caught locally) with a Cajun twist. I have never seen such large prawns. They were cooked well and the sauce with it was very good. We also had the chow mien which had a nice soy and sesame flavor with perfectly cooked veggies.

Our cab driver recommended Tantalo Kitchen and dropped us off in front of it. So glad we took his advice!! The food was delicious and we loved the ambiance. I had a cocktail named "Grey Goose on Fire" which was totally awesome. The ceviche was really great also. Highly recommend you try this restaurant if you are in the Casco... More

This place was recommended by a friend and our hotel. We are on the rooftop which has great views of the city and Casco Viejo. We ordered several things off the menu. Everything is pretty much tapas style. The most memorable dish was the bacon wrapped shrimp. However, EVERY dish we were served was luke-warm at best. So baffling, a... More

We chose to eat here on Sunday because we loved the bar and most other places were closed. While we enjoyed our empenadas and ceviche, the portions were very small for what you paid for. The ceviche was good but lacked some "wow" factor.

Nice view from the top, although the speakers blast the music so loud you can't hear your own thoughts (or i might be too old). Service and food is average. Not sure it`s worth the money.
