About the restaurant
Somos la primera panadería tradicional austriaca en Centroamérica, pioneros en la producción artesanal de panes de masa madre con centenos waldstaude, emmer y espelta de Niederösterreich una provincia boscosa al norte de Austria. Todos los panes y dulces que preparamos son de masa madre, la cual tiene múltiples beneficios para el organismo y un alto valor nutricional.

Buscando maridar nuestros panes con ingredientes igualmente excepcionales, desarrollamos un menú bistro en conjunto con el chef Alfonso de La Espriella, de Restaurante Casa Escondida, una propuesta purista, orgánica y saludables que va desde tostadas francesas, ensaladas, sopas, “tostas” y “pastries” de masa madre.

Nuestra fundadora y “head backer”, Natalie Salzman, proviene de una familia dedicada a la panadería tradicional en la antigua aldea de Pfunds, en la región de Tirol, en Austria. Queremos honrar su herencia culinaria y a la vez celebrar la variedad de productos y sabores que ofrecen los suelos panameños.

This was an amazing find in Panama for lunch. The food and whole ambience was great, we bought 2 loaves of bread to take on the plane home tonight. If it wasn’t the last day we would have been back for sure!

About the restaurant
Welcome to Mahalo, created by Canadian sisters Emma & Brit, located in the heart of Casco Viejo, what began as a dream, became a reality. Mahalo Panama, opened July 1st 2016, and the concept was simple, healthy food, promoting healthy living, and providing a space for people to feel comfortable, as if in your own backyard. Mahalo has since branched into two locations, maintaining the original location as a juice bar under the name of Snack Shack, and the new Mahalo Cocina y Jardin with a slightly more intimate cozy setting offering an international menu with the same healthy base. Since opening Mahalo has been seen in Vogue, GQ, Conde Naste Traveler, Lonely Planet and more.

We reserved a table of six. They hosted us even though we arrived 15 minutes earlier. I love this restaurant. It is cozy and well maintained. The services are always top-notch, and the food and drinks are on point. I would recommend getting in here and trying all their specialties.

Superb in all respects. Food and cocktails were creative and flavorful. Tasting menu consisted of exquisitely prepared versions of Panamanian dishes. Very enjoyable experience, and excellent value for the price. Best meal we have had in Panama by far. Don’t miss this one.

My family including a baby went for our last dinner before returning home and had an awesome experience. Eduardo gave us top notch service and made us feel like home. The views from this restaurant are amazing and the lobster al termidor was delicious. Highly recommend for a fun dinner for a special occasion!

About the restaurant
We invite you to join us for our playful exploration of flavour, that is equal parts: intuition and experience. With often primitive methods of concoction such as fermentation, smoking, raw dishes, curing, pickling and the magic and unpredictability of cooking over wood fire – all coming together with elegant execution in dishes designed for sharing and pairing. Purposefully a little disruptive, we take an approach to dining that is fun, and encourages looking at traditional ideas from a new angle. This can be anything from getting stuck in with your hands, to rehashing recipes with funky local produce. We never stand still and continue to evolve – just as fire refuses to hold a single form.
