This restaurant is amazing!! The decor and music makes you FEEL Panama, and the food lets you TASTE Panama. When my husband is homesick for some authentic Panamanian cuisine, this is where he wants to be. The Owner is dedicated to quality and concerned that each guest feels special. Treat yourself to this restaurant - you will thank me for suggesting it 😊

I give a lot of positive reviews, but this place has really great unique food. You can tell every dish is made with love. And this is traditional food you wont find anywhere else. The prices are kind of high, but I think its worth it. And people seem not to have discovered it, so it is usually pretty empty and the service is great.

As a Panamanian, I love coming here every time I visit DC and my alma-mater, Howard University. I just wish I could get more people to come out & support this fabulous gem!

Loved it. Lived in Panama for a year and met up with some friends here for a great dinner. Everything was delicious! It was nice to have some real chombo with my pargo. Looking forward to coming back for Saturday frituras. Buen provecho!
