Best restaurants in Panamá Province

  • Restaurants in Panama Canal

    Atlantic & Pacific Co.

    This upscale restaurant is worthy of the canal, though prices do reflect the exclusive setting. Serving New Panamanian cuisine and using local produce, it provides distinctive choices, and plenty of them, at the sumptuous lunch buffet. Seafood is a highlight, as well as rich Panamanian coffee and desserts. Ask for balcony seating and watch boats pass the locks.

  • Restaurants in Pacific Coast Beaches

    La Ruina

    For a leisurely bite, La Ruina serves stem glasses of ceviche (citrus-cured seafood) and authentic chicken curried with coconut rice bocatoreño -style. Sit outside at the leatherette booths and pass the time by chatting with the owner or tapping along to the country tunes. There's a pool (US$5) should you feel the need to cool off. La Ruina is run by a friendly US Army retiree and his Panamanian wife.
