Good selection of craft beers. Free samples. Limited food menu and it sometimes takes awhile for food to arrive. Small portions. Also have domestic beers that are less expensive the the craft beers. Indoor and outdoor seating.

Good music, mood and service. Try the local beers and itsmo brews, they're pretty good. Good beer selection too.

Quaint little place open to the air and the sounds of the city. It is on a side street so city sounds are minimal. Three beers on tap and the pitcher of darkish brew what we had was quite tasty, though I forgot what it was.

We stopped for a beer on evening and found that the Itsmo had a decent selection of beer on tap, nothing outstanding. The location is good. Service was decent -

Sloppy service, fair food and a few house brews to choose from. It OK, just fair. No air-conditioning and facing a busy, noisy street which adds to my stress level. The waitress I had thought she was doing us a favor buy waiting on us. Find a nice place. There's a Sheraton next door with a nice bar and air.

I spent my first night in Panama in this bar. I was so disappointed by the food - so so bad and so expensive. We ordered beers that those were okay. Still, I would not go back for food. Service was good, the waitress was super nice - that is why I am leaving two stars.

We went there with a group of 8 people and ordered some mojoto's. Those cost $7 each. They charged us additional 2 rum Abuejo añejo shots for each mojito at $3.60 each, making a mojito like $15 while we just asked for a normal mojito. Nobody was informed about that cost increase but they insisted we pay and went to... More

This was amazing, but not in a positive way. When you order a 7 USD Mojito and you ask to change the Bacardi Rum into the local Abuelo Rum the price will go up to 14 USD a Mojito. For a not really special pup is a ridiculous amount. Get real and put your feet back on earth. As we... More

I was at Istmo for beer only and cannot comment on the food. The craft beer was very good and my favorite was the Chiriquí (copper colored, maybe a bock). I also liked very much the atmosphere: a bohemian vibe that reminded me of college years. The service was friendly, but often slow and unpolished. Frankly, a few times the... More

Attentive and congenial hostesses and servers. Service with a smile. Quality local brews and eclectic mix of local, Caribbean and assorted jams. Smoke free. Assorted menu of delectable appetizers to full mixed plates.
