All the food was good, wine and beer were cold, but the combination ceviche was the thing that really stood out at this seafood restaurant. For $6 it had octopus, fish, shrimp, clams, and crab. Delicious!

Casual fish place - corvina, shrimps etc with rice and either garlic or carribean sauce are great. Sip your beer slowly as it take a while for dishes to arrive at your table - that's Panama.

You get a large menu, but the menu lists everything that might be available- that doesn't mean that item is available on the particular day you are there- so be flexible, since everything is freshly caught. We had the langostinos and octopus stew, and a ceviche appetizer. Good food, very good value.

Nice family run place with local charm. Since Pedasi is attracting more and more expats, there is no way to get away, but this is close to it. Beer is cold and cheap. Fish is fresh and good. Service is friendly. Nice outdoor seating. The waitress liked helping us with Spanish while we helped her with her English. Nice evening.

Panamanian style restaurant. Lots of locals eating there. Good fish - we tried the whole fried fish & the "Macho" style fish fillet. Both were excellent. Good home cooked patacones (fried plantains). Friendly staff. Cheap beer.

Not only the food is completely awesome but they serve very good portions. The service is not that fast but as soon as you receive your plate you forget about the little delay. Do not forget to ask for the Shrimp in Garlic Sauce and/or the Shrimp Ceviche.

We went for a late dinner after arriving in Pedasi by car from Panama City. We ordered shrimp which was seasoned well, but overcooked. We'd give them another chance, but not the shrimp.

Had a nice full dinner with drinks that was tasty at a great price. Would recommend to anyone! It was a Monday night and no one else was open.
