My husband has family in Santiago so everytime we travel to Panama we spend a lot of time there. Over the past decade I have seen Santiago evolve from basically a pit stop on the way to Chiriqui to a destination in its own right. It still has some way to go, but there are now lodging options that make an extended stay very comfortable. Dining options also keep getting better and more diversified. We spent six days and five nights in Santiago exploring the surrounding area. We spent a whole day at the pool at Hotel Mykonos will family members. We also checked out Santa Fe, the beaches of Herrera - Mariato, Torio, and Morillo. Spent a day at the volcano at La Yeguada. Our final day we spent enjoying the new resort pool at Cubita in La Arena near Chitre, a little bit of shopping in downtown Chitre, and the opening festivities of El Manito de Ocu. Our first night in Santiago we went downtown to the park square and discovered a little carnival in full swing. Our kids had a blast.

They serve delicious, authentic Italian with fresh seafood! The price seem a bit expensive compared to other local restaurants but it's well worth it considering the volume the quality of the food!
Nice and comfortable atmosphere. Typical and International meals. Natural juices, cocktails, beers and wines. Select music.
This little road side place has great pizza, the service is fast and friendly and the prices are decent. We ate there three times during our visit- we really enjoyed it!
We were in transition from Panama City, through to Azuero Peninsula. Stopped in at La Gioia di Napoli and we were SO amazed at the quality of food this family is preparing. Simply fantastic! authentic Italian, home made by the owner who speaks half-Italian half-Spanish. The sons are workign there as well: making fresh pizza dough and baking in their pizza oven. The lasagna is a MUST (best lasagna we've tasted, EVER), and the pizzas are fresh, sauce is to die for. Highly recommended. We took photos of the food too but no place to post them here (?).

A friend referred us to this small establishment that makes amazing pizza. The food is delicious, the service is good, and the price is very reasonable.Letrusco is open only in the evenings, and No alcohol is served in the restaurant.

The Pinguino Cafe is more than a Cafe. It's the best location in Santa Catalina for food, directly on the beach with a stunning view and cosy atmosphere. The owner is in the kitchen, bar and serving the food, everything from the menu is fresh and homemade. The fish and patacones were excellent. On busy days, it may take a while until you get your food, but if you're in Santa Catalina, at the beach and stressed about your time, you should reconsider your attitude anyways ;) . Just relax, sit back and listen to the sound of the waves enjoying a few cold beers before food is served.
