Very very authentic Spanish food and ambience. The owner chef was out taking orders and directing traffic the whole time, and seemed to know everyone....things like this make the difference. Staff were well trained, fast, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was simply excellent....simple, good quality authentic dishes that were cooked and presented well. Its really a joy to go to a restaurant like this which is so unpretentious and so good. The chorizo and morcilla (blood sausage) were superb....as was the grilled octopus. We also had some roasted pork with the skin and mero (fish) with a simple but great tomato sauce. Everything put onto the table was just great. Hats off to the owner, chef and everyone involved for creating such an authentic quality restaurant that everyone should experience.

For me, definitely the best Lebanese I have had in Panama. Really superb hummus (incredibly smooth) and babaganoush. Fantastic shish taouk with rice and salad. Great falafels. Very well prepared hooka pipe - we had apple. Decor inside is very traditional and the AC does a superb job of removing the hookah smoke immediately. Service was attentive, fast and excellent. The owner works hard keeping everything moving and attending to everyone also. Great food, great experience....will definitely be back soon.

Slick, chic, elegant....a hidden gem. Love the concept of a hidden restaurant entrance - you walk out the elevators with no signs and there is a florist shop, which on the other side has a steel fridge looking door. This is the entrance. Then when you walk in the restaurant opens out on both sides - big open area, enclosed large private dining room, big terrace running along the length of the restaurant and the sushi bar area. I wouldn't say it is the best sushi in Panama, but its up there as one of the best I think. We had a new cooked avocado starter which was really good....like mashed potato/avocado. The infamous and popular pork belly too. Some great red wine. Service was top notch and a good experience sitting at the sushi bar. Only slight issue was how cold it was on one side of the bar. The decor and ambience is well thought out....hip...and with it being busy the noise levels were good and it had a great ambience. Will definitely go back some time and try new things.

Seriously?....when the most voted dish is guacamole with chips then you know not to expect anything too special. The food is decent but not the best mexican you'll ever have. It has been taken over by new owners and renamed....decor and furniture is the same....service is not. We were a large group, ordered starters and all of those empty plates sat on the table while we had more courses and mains. The tables were literally creaking under the weight of dirty plates. Anyway the food was ok....menu to me seemed quite limited and also geared up to sharing big dishes with lots of people....I'd say good for families and picking at lots of things....but there's way better tacos elsewhere for less money....and a shame you can't get fajitas now for one it has to be shared.

By far the best indian food I have had in Panama to date. I had an incredible chicken tikka kebab (really huge amount of chicken) a fantastic (kadeer?) paneer and the best naan (cheese with garlic) I think I have ever had. Food was extremely freshly prepared and too hot to eat initially. Spices were really really good.....definitely not watered down in any way for softer palettes. However, the new owner needs to be careful of service. For some reason this restaurant - as it did before - seems to be a meeting point for the local Indian community coming to talk business or just hang out. This for me makes the restaurant appear less serious about what it is there to do. I was the only customer in the restaurant and the owner/manager was talking business to some locals close to me whilst the only waiter sat watching the football. He did check on me, but I think only because I was sat so close to the bar so he had to keep walking past me, otherwise I'm sure I would have been forgotten about if I had been further away. Bearing in mind that the decor and even furnishings are exactly the same as with the previous restaurant....I feel they need to look after the local (non-Indian) business better and improve the service or it will not win more business. Panamanians do like Indian food from what I have seen, but the decor and service needs to be improved to win them over. Having said all this, if you know and love Indian food then you will realise that this place is a step above all the others, and that is the main reason I would go back....and for just the food alone it is totally worth it!

An old favourite of mine, and one which did not fail to deliver a memorable experience. Went here for the monthly tasting menu dinner with wine pairings and everything was outstanding!

Well presented sushi rolls and very tasty. Had the dynamite and volcano rolls plus some salmon sashimi. The sashimi was really excellent....I can't remember tasting a fresher and more buttery salmon. The rolls were presented more creatively than other similar sushi restaurants....it was not really high end....but a cut above the best/most popular other main sushi restaurants with good differentiation in flavours and rolls that were not too big or too small. Service was good, atmosphere is quite sparce/sterile....but not unpleasant...just more focused on the food. I will definitely go back to try more.

Had an unexpectedly good lunch here the other day. Nice decor, good service and the food was excellent. Started with the empanadas which were really great. Nice thin corn empanadas filled with different meats and cheese.....although I'm not sure you get the variety from the menu as mine seemed to all be chicken...but they were super tasty and hot, served with a nice homemade spiced mayo. I followed this with one of the burgers (had an onion ring in it) which was very good. Great meat, nice flavour and texture. Decent bun. Would definitely go back and try other things.

Young Panamanian couple making a go of it with some interesting dishes, good service and friendly atmosphere. We had some asian inspired pork belly buns to start which were really tasty. Seeing this a lot nowadays on menu's....but it was nicely cooked and seasoned. They have a standard burger on the menu but I went for the special that is being entered in a competition and it was really great. Had some nice sweet caramelized onions mixed with a homemade spicy mayo....coupled with a really good homemade recipe burger and a very light toasted sesame bun....very tasty! I hope they are successful as they welcome comments, give good recommendations and are trying hard to satisfy customers. PS. There is ample parking in the basement carpark below the restaurant.

Great food (especially the chicken schnitzel with jaeger sauce....or hamburger), great service....good selection of specialist/craft beers....amazing sound system and music....one of the best live music venues in Panama....and for those that don't know there's a carpark at the end of the road (on the other side of the road opposite McDonalds)
