This restaurant is nestled in the residential but trendy hot spot for restaurants and bars in the San Francisco neighborhood. The restaurant is beautiful, service is excellent and the food is divine.

Dishes feature typical Panamanian dishes with a modern and elevated touch. Do not pass on a cocktail made with Panamanian "Seco" and save room for dessert.

Last week , group of 4 adults and a chlid , 7:30 PM reservation , only 2 tables occupied at that time . Interesting Menu , ordered several apetizers to split , nicely presented , then wanted to see the Wine List ,the young waiter told us that they were changing it and they had none , but he gladly would answer our questions . View this we opted to order a sparkling wine(no use asking him or trying to find out about the Whites and the Reds ... ! ) , we mentioned a Cava , he offered 2 ( should have been colder) but no price info of course . Main courses were very good , ordered 4 different ones to taste them all , good size portions , Again , dessert , was good , 4 different ones . Don´t know if the person wearing the short blue jacket was the maitre d´? He passed our table several times , but never stopped to ask if everything was OK maybe he did not notice us ? No idea who he was , I doubt it was the chef ?
Very expensive , but frankly the lack of a Wine List was very disapointing for a restaurant asigned such a good rating among restaurants here in Panama .

Interesting tasting menu for only about $70.00 per person. Reasonable wine prices. Very friendly service. No English is spoken and no English menus which detracted from the total experience. Wish I had understood more about the dishes!

The food at Maito is incredible! Maito is tucked away on a quiet residential street. The restaurant is charming and has stunning outdoor gardens. The menu is only in Spanish, which made ordering a little more exciting for people with subpar Spanish. We ate several items that we weren't exactly sure what we had ordered, but everything was amazing! The food was both beautiful and delicious. We highly recommend a trip to Maito in San Francisco instead of dinner at one of the touristy restaurants in Casco Antiguo.

The food could hardly be any better. We had the lamb and bacon tacos and some corn fritters as appetizer, and then ate marvelous seabass with octopus and squid, as well as calamares stuffed with ink risotto. It's hard to tell which dish was better.

The restaurant would only gain if it was in a nicer neighborhood.
