We enjoyed our first dinner here. My wife at excellent pasta and I had a great chicken soup appetizer. I had good veal cheeks and my wife's meal was good too. We also had hamburgers for lunch here one day as we had been told they were the best burgers in Panama city. We tempted fate and ate dinner here... More

Relatively expensive and not exactly amazing. Service is good and friendly, but the food is distinctly average. Nothing wrong but nothing that stands out either

The restaurant decoration has nothing to do with the famous "Salsipuedes" street. The space between tables is excellent. The service was also good. The food however, is expensive for what you get. there was no taste on several dishes. For the price and location much more was expected. We will not go back to this restaurant or recommend it.

Had fixed menu for Christmas but were flexible with me since I don't eat meat. They replace the meat with a delicious fish...

Late night stopped in for starters. Had the ceviche with coconut based sauce. It really didn't taste that good just ok. The cod cakes were definitely very very good. Balboa beer helped. Great atmosphere Staff was very helpful, polite and attentive

Local dishes with a modern twist. Comfort food but in small plates. Impeccable presentation. Fresh deliveries " no it was not orange season, too sour". Run there for lunch or dinner!

Food was okay, but not terrific. Took a long time to get drinks on a Sunday. Prices seem a little higher overall.

The staff here are warm and friendly. The choices on the buffet had something for everyone. One of our party was a little disappointed with the lack of seafood. The toaster had non-functioning slots. The atmosphere is sophisticated casual.
