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.

Special treat for out last evening in Panama City. It happened to be very uncrowded, which for us was a another treat. Lots of attention from waiter who explained the menu and helped us choose.

Last night we dined at the Bristol Hotel's restaurant called Salcipuedes. The decor is a new take on classic, tropical design, which is a breath of fresh air from the thousands of stark, Zen modern restaurants in the city. The food is amazing. Each of our dishes was beautifully presented with excellent service. The combinations of flavors and ingredients were... More

Was not impressed here. The lighting was so dim that I had to use my torch to read the menu. The food was tepid and I was given a knife and fork to eat my soup. The desserts menu never came, nor did the coffee. The dish I had tasted quite nice but would have been better if it wasn't... More

We booked dinner at this restaurant and the booking itself, made via their website, was easy. However, the actual experience was awful and we spent good money for nothing. We were greeted by a hostess whose expression and body language was cold and un-welcoming. We had to specify a few times that we had made reservations before she let us... More

I was here for the breakfast brunch. This is going to be a short review because every single morsel that I ate was made to perfection. Every bite scaled down to the perfect size. Nothing is too salty, or too creamy or cold, everything is simply great. The service is very good and the ambiance and décor are outstanding. Come... More

We stayed at the hotel and the restaurant was good; they had a good variety for BF buffet but they close at 10:00 sharp even on Sunday. Late sleepers out of luck; they should stay till 10:30 at least.

Thank christinecjacques

Under the direction of renowned Executive Chef Cuquita Arias de Calvo, Salsipuedes offers a rich showcase of gourmet Panamanian cuisine.The restaurant’s name honors Panama City’s legendary - and sometimes notorious -Salsipuedes Street, which has been a city landmark since 1671.

Each celebrates the spirit of the Panamanian culture and is as cheerful and spicy as the people themselves.
