I was actually blown away by the food and service here. I booked this restaurant strictly for the views from their outdoor deck and was not expecting much from the food. The food is reasonably priced for the location as well as the portion size. And then to have the quality and flavor of the food surpass expectations I was floored. The presentation of our dishes was top notch as well. Service was also nice. Very attentive but not annoying. And they also had menus in English which was cool. We didn't need them, but it was a nice touch for those that do.

My boyfriend and I had one appetizer, two entrees, two sides, dessert, two beers, and two margaritas. With a 10% tip included, total was $115. The ambiance of the looking at downtown Panama and sitting over the water makes for a very romantic setting. It's also very dark on the deck. So if you have trouble reading menus in the dark, use your phone flashlight. You will need it.

Overall the service, environment, and food make this place an excellent value. I will be back!

The staff provided very good service and the restaurant has great ambience but the meals are small although tasty. I expected more after the reviews. Won't be returning. It's overpriced!

The location and atmosphere at Capital Bistro Panama are fantastic, both on the upper outdoor terrace and in the second floor dining room. Food was delicious though pricey, worth the splurge in our opinion. We had the cerviche and carpaccio appetizers, both were uniquely presented -- even our 11-year-old raved about how tasty they were. A standout among the entrees was the lobster risotto. Only negative was that our server spoke very limited English.

Place and atmosphere are great. The violin gives a different style to this restaurant. Food is only good; that's what overall it was too expensive in my opinion

On a recent return to panama after a 5 year period, we were pleasantly surprised to see that casco Viejo has been redeveloped and now featured many new bars and restaurants. Our favourite was the CPB Restaurant bar. What a fantastic place. It consists of 3 levels, with the top open air bar being where we spent our time.

The bar décor and setting is fantastic, and the views into Panama City, across the waterways are fantastic. The best place is to get a seat on the benches overlooking the water with the city views.

We kept coming back as it is such a beautiful place with stunning views. There is an upmarket restaurant on the second level which we did not visit, however would definitely be somewhere we would try in the future.

A little gem in Panama that is well worth sundown cocktails. The only downside was the waiter service could be a bit slow.
