This is one of the very best restaurants in Panama. Sadly they are closing as the owner is retiring. The daughter has stated that she will reopen in a different location. I can't express enough just how good this restaurant has been.

Willy Diggelman is an excellent chef. He bought a competitor many years ago, and he now owns the Rincon Suizo and 1985. The Swiss side offers obviously swiss cuisine and 1985 offers French. He also has a good wine cellar.
