    We made a reservation to make sure we got a spot at the place many people recommended us. My fiancé and I were expecting great things, but we were definitely disappointed. The food was okay, our waiter was rude and didn’t check on us, and it was $60 for two entrees, no drinks, no appetizers, just entrees.

    Loved the server and ambiance. Ceviche was small portions. And the poke tuna was really bland. Will try something else next time. Enjoyed the idea of different ceviches

    Although we have lived in Wilmington a year now,this was our first visit! Definitely recommend a reservation. We decided on the original bar area and loved the atmosphere. The rest of the dining area is super cozy and welcoming. The food was great- we did the sampler Ceviche- all spot on, but the Chipotle shrimp and scallop was underwhelming compared to the others. Totally recommend the guacamole sampler- all were fab! Don’t drink, but happy they offered a NABeer New favorite spot!!!!

    Food was very good - fresh and spiced as expected, as Panamanian dishes should be ! We shared 2 guac's and a salsa. And shared 3 different empanada entres, and other dishes. Chorizo was my fav - a little spicy. Others dishes well prepared and presented. I'll come back for The Mahi Taco special.

    Honestly was disappointed. This was the second time I’ve tried. Portions aren’t great. Expected flavorful dining experience. Instead food was just so-so. Presentation was definitely lacking. Didn’t live up to the hype. Doubt that I go back. On a positive note, server was very good.

    We made a reservation and were seated at a high top table in the crowded bar when there was plenty of space in the dining room where others were seated. The seating experience colored the rest of the evening. The food was good.

    Christmas Eve dinner, and it was *wonderful*. The scallops wrapped in pork belly were delicious. The guacamole trio is outstanding, especially the goat cheese (!) The homemade chips alone are worth the price. The ceviche was fantastic and a very generous portion. We could not finish it all. The server was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable, even on a busy holiday evening. The price was very fair, particularly for the quality of the meal and the serving sizes. Highly recommend.

    Overall, a great experience. Food was excellence. Great menu selection. Fish was fantastic, had the scallops and pork bellies- one of of these dishes there. Cocktails was great, and you can’t beat 1/2 price Wine Bottles in Wednesday’s. Great ambiance. Would highly recommend this place for any occasion.

    Such a hidden gem. Found it online while looking for a place that my vegan husband could enjoy. I, not being vegan, enjoyed the Panamanian Paella. Both of us had many options to chose from. Wine down Wednesday made it truly memorable. We will be back.
