This trendy tapas restaurant packs in the locals on weekend nights, but it's a fun place for a meal any time. Seating is at long, high tables, which different groups share under a tangle of wires and hanging lamps. The tapas are an international mix of flavors: from Greek salad to coconut cashew chicken to a selection of Panamanian empanadas (fried pastries stuffed with sausage and potato or beans and cheese). The portions vary in size, but the best thing is to
start with two per person, and share. The atmosphere is hip, with house music on the stereo and original art on the walls. You may want to head up to the rooftop bar—a popular night spot with an impressive view—once you've had your fill of tapas.

Tantalo is unique! The best description is that its sort of where NYC' SOHO meets Colonial Panama. Situated in a renovated 4 story building, this tapas restaurant puts out superb quality dishes at reasonable prices. The service is attentive and friendly and the kibbutz style dining tables break down barriers between the guests. The downstairs bar is dominated by a huge vertical garden and the upstairs bar is a favorite among the HOT crowd. The
age rage at the bars is from 20-50 something. Tantalo is more about FUN and less about serious dining.
