Dined there last Friday and found it to offer perhaps the best service, best cocktail and best steak of my three months in Panama..... Surprising that it is not more heavily booked

After the humid hustle and bustle of business district Panama, this charming oasis of the Old Town is a trip down memory lane with attentive service and delicious dishes to savour.

A great restaurant but on the high side for prices. Great ambience in an older building in Casco Viejo, service was good. Very little english spoken. Food was very good

A nice atmosphere restaurant, food is made precisely the way you ask for, with quite a wine selection. A must when going to Casco Viejo. Try the tuna tartar for starters and a nice steak as a main.

The Restaurant is situated in one of the rooms of a fully restored private mansion dating back to 1657 and is one of the very first structures built in the old fortified Spanish city. The original walls and arches are skillfully blended into a cosy dining and bar area. We have now expanded further into the old house and now offer private dining
