We went to Las Tinajas on a Tuesday evening and did not need reservations. The restaurant offers a local folk-type performance at 9 pm as an option with dinners. We enjoyed just the dinner and found the seafood options to be very good. The staff were friendly and attentive. Would recommend.

We made reservations the day we went to dinner and saw the show. It was a Saturday night but not all the tables were filled. The show was enjoyable and food was just ok. The staff was friendly and they let us take a picture with the dancers at the end of the show.

We were part of a group tour so our menu was already set which I am sure is not a good representation of the food the restaurant has to offer. We had a choice of chicken, fish or tamale. Everyone at our table just thought it was OK but certainly nothing great.

The assorted Panamanian appetizer plate shared by the table was fairly good.

Service was attentive considering we were a large party.

The show was just OK; a bit corny.

We certainly would not have picked this place on our own.

Couple visit during our stay in Panama for our anniversary. Very close to our hotel, the Waldorf Astoria, and highly recommended by locals and hotel staff. Tried the “arroz con pollo”, “patacones con ropa vieja”, and “sancocho”. All three were excellent.

Tinajas is worth the visit if you are in Panama especially if you stay at one of the many hotels close by. The restaurant is small and has a very unique Spanish/Panamanian look and feel to it. The food/drinks were pretty good. The show afterward was really cool and I even got the opportunity to go on stage, take pics and dance with some of the performers.
