My only regret is we did not come across this restaurant the first night of our Trump Tower Stay of February 24. Returning on March 9, we caught a glimpse of the beautiful patio dining room as we exited the Ferry. This was the last day of our Panama vacation and the perfect ending to an outstanding holiday.
The restaurant is sea-side, open-air (yet covered), with a phenomenal skyline view. Romantic and casual ambience with soft lighting and music. Comfortable seating and selection - tables or more casual sofas. Service was impeccable, and although we do not speak a great deal of Spanish any struggles with communication were quickly resolved by the Manager. Menu is a unique flip-page design represented in both English and Spanish. And....then there is the food !
Most difficult choice was narrowing down what to order. They have a nice variety on their menu from Sushi, Starters, Unique Salads, Pizza, and numerous main entrees. We quickly ordered a bottle of Chianti and a starter of Sushi. I chose a Shrimp Salad with lovely mix of greens. Was the perfect light meal ....until the bread was served which I could not resist and devoured down 2 slices. Others in our party raved about their Lobster Ravioli, and Shrimp entrees. Thankfully we all shared with each other.....and because we didn't want to leave we also ordered a 2nd bottle of wine.
The meal wrapped up with a light 'creamy espresso' drink complimentary of the restaurant. We very much enjoyed dining at La Vespa Vista Mare experience and evidentally others do as well because it was quite busy for a Thursday evening with a mixture of tourists, families, couples, and business travelers.
We classified this as a mid-moderately priced restaurant, but it presents itself as a high-end restaurant.
We will be returning to Panama, and would seek this restaurant even if we are not staying at Trump. It's that nice!
