    Makoto can be consider one of the best restaurants in Panama. The ambience, the service and in special the food is very well prepared, brought to the table in optimal conditions and delicious. I love the rock shrimp, the fried rice with an organic egg on top, their sushi and the entrana a delicious meat that they serve.

    I love Makoto and usually have great experience, but this time although most of the food was great as always the wagyu beef on the donbury was touch. The restaurant has great service and the food was replacement by something else. I always recommend this restaurant as it has great flavors, ingredients and ambience but it is pricey and portions are small.

    For starters the Security Guard asked for your vaccination card before you could even get up to the restaurant. Very stupid. The hostess seated is in the darkest corner of the restaurant even though there were many tables available. The wait staff was very slow or shorthanded I’m not sure which. The appetizers are very good but the main dishes were very lacking and really not worth the price you paid. The presentation was good but overall the service of the staff was very poor
