First time in this restaurant. Service was magnificent, the place was beautiful, good background music, not loud good for a pleasant conversation. We order 5 dishes to share, 4 were espectacular, 1 was OK. The Tempranillo by glass was really good (forgot to ask what it was), as well as the cocktail. My final rating is 4.8 of 5.0.

One of the best meals I ever had in my life. The service and ambience are amazing. This is a place I recommend to anyone who wants a nice outing in Panama. Try the sea bass. It’s the best I ever had.

Todo es delicioso, lo único que no gusta es que si uno pide la botella de vino
Más económica, no lo tienen nunca, entonces, quítenlo de la lista!!! Y se nota el afán de ver cómo incrementas la cuenta

Nice place but definitely overpriced.
Beer @ 7$!!!
Glass of wine @ 10$!!!
Teka portion really really tiny
Little pieces of entraña @ 34$!!!
I do not mind paying and i can afford it. Now, i Might not come back because i di not like paying for nothing!
Los anos locos is a better option for instance.

Every time we visit we feel this is one of the best places in town. Amazing food and the terrace is just gorgeous, the plants everything about it fits perfectly. And then there is the wine list, an amazing selection of natural wines and sherry’s! The best spot

Hate when sushi is so big it is not possible to fit in your mouth and then falls apart all over the place. Presentation is fine, but the rolls are no different in flavor than any other sushi restaurant including Nacion which is half the price. Menu is all on the phone and is difficult to read. Service was attentive. For this very expensive restaurant, they can be MUCH better. I will not return.

The restaurant is one of our favorites, unfortunately this time it took the food almost 50 minutes at the end they end up giving us the dish free because of the wait time, overall the experience was really good and the staff was awesome the only inconvenient was the wait time

Upon arrival we were asked inside or outside. We requested outside yet were directed to the WORST seat in the house. Located next to the sliding door of the private dining and lucky us there was a party in there so we got lots of traffic passing. We observed others couples entering and being seated outside without any hesitation. I frequent Makoto Bal Harbour and will only visit that location. Side note if you’re out of Crab your staff should never suggest substituting with artificial crab. The use of real crab is why I choose Makoto over other places that happily advertise the use of imitation crab meat.
