“Sauces were magnificent!!”

Restaurant La Torre
Ranked #6 of 15 Restaurants in Portobelo
Cuisines: Central American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 January 2016

Not often you find a central american restaurant that can prepare a great sauce. That was the case at La Torre last week when we had the Corvina al ajillo (garlic sauce) for lunch. In addition the octopus was wonderful in a dark sauce. If you are in the Portobello area make time for this family owned, clean and comfortable restaurant.

All 4 of us had different plates and they were all good! Try the coconut octopus, fried corvina, garlic shrimp, filet with lemon. Oh and a sangria! We will return!

Ate here with three growing boys. I had a hamburger, they had fish and shrimp. It was very good. They serve cokes ice cold in the bottle.

Lots of choices, everything is cooked to order and is very flavorful. Good service, reasonable prices.

The corvina was anything but ordinary. My wife had the filet version while I had the more traditional whole fried. Both were excellent presentations of this Panama standard (which I had 10+ times). The yucca, plantains, slaw, and sauces were very good.
So while this is a good choice for eating, it is an IDEAL SPOT for a stop if visiting Portobelo. The road is tough (seems much longer than the 33 km posted), the neighborhood is not particularly welcoming, there are few services in Portobelo. La Torre offers a good, clean place to get out of the car, grab a seat and a soda or cerveza. Go upstairs and relax for a few minutes. They offered WiFi and were extremely welcoming tourist friendly people.
Portobelo is an interesting stop but the church and ruins really only take 1-2 hours. This leaves you feeling underwhelmed if you drove over from Panama City as we did. The stop at La Torre made it feel worth the trip.
