S'cena Review

S'cena offers a good mix of ambiance and Mediterranean classics such as paella and original dishes such as langosta en salsa mediterránea (lobster in almond sauce), filete a los tres hongos (filet mignon with portobello, shiitake, and cremini mushrooms), and atún rojo (grilled tuna marinated in a cherry-soy sauce). It occupies the second floor of a restored colonial-era building, with patches of exposed stone walls and historic photos and paintings by local artists hanging on the plastered stretches. S'cena's location between Plaza Francia and Plaza Bolívar makes it a good spot to have lunch before, or dinner after, exploring the Casco Viejo. On a Thursday or Saturday, you can step downstairs afterward for the live music.

    S'cena Review

    We had a wonderful meal and would have written a very nice review on this restaurant. But the experience was ruined when Mastercard contacted us 2 days later to say that my credit card information had been used to create a counterfeit card. There were already $600 worth of charges on it, and this was the only place in Panama that I had used this credit card. Needless to say, we would not recommend this restaurant!!

    S'cena Review

    We had a very enjoyable experience at S'cena. The food was very delicious. We had paella for 2, for $28, and a scrumptious citrus creme brulee for dessert. The owner, John William (Willie) is onsite and oversees the operation and customer experience. He is an internationally experienced restauranteur. Downstairs is a tapas bar with live entertainment. I highly recommend S'cena. It is a must for visitors to Panama City.
