A stormy afternoon and a gourmet lunch. Great ambiance, pretty little front front porch and a kitchen with good, ambitious food! The appitizer was outstanding...a eggplant concotion you didn't want to end. My main was a pork chop with strawberry reduction. Very good but pork was thin which accounts for the driness. Overall, a very satisfying meal with a very... More

Nice place, very peaceful, excellent food. I had the Roman Steak with yummy sweet onion and steam potatoes. Fruit smoothies are simply awesome. I would return anytime.

We visit Volcan and Cerro Punta several times a year--usually on Sundays, family day in the area. A nice meal for lunch can be difficult to find. But, having had a friend recommend Cafe Volcan as "really quite nice", we decided to give it a try. We arrived 20 minutes before noon and there wasn't any sign of activity. Disappointed,... More

Café Volcan is a great restaurant. We have eaten there many times and have always had delicious meals. The chicken is always tender and the salads are made with a lot of vegetables from their garden. They have a choice of entre, salad, vegetables for one price. The kitchen is in full view and you can watch your food being... More

Whenever you go to Volcan, this place is a must to visit. Great food, attention and place. The food is unforgettable, so is the coffee. You have to try the natural salad dressings, with every visit you can try different starters and main courses, therr is no way to leave dissapointed!

We had a great lunch at this café. The food is fresh and very tasty. The place is nicely decorated and we really felt at home. Contrary to other local restaurants the food is light tasty and not oily. You feel that the vegetables had been picked one hour ago from the owner's garden. the fresh fruits smoothies are a... More

We stopped for a late lunch and had the most delightful meal that we postponed our tour! Everything was wonderful; the herbed chicken, the pork chop with strawberry sauce and the Romanian steak with yucca adobo was the best I've had in many years! It was a relaxing, enjoyable atmosphere; our visiting family said that this was the best meal... More

We had a late lunch of "fresh" fish at Cafe Volcan. We've had fresh fish all over Panama, and this was the least tasty fish we ate in Panama. We asked the proprietress before ordering whether the fish was fresh (in Spanish) and she assured us it was. But I'd contend otherwise. Also, the fish was not descaled. The presentation,... More
