Fodor's Expert Review La Niña Delia
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
The high, thatch roof on the left side of the Avenida Principal as you roll into town marks this spot for inexpensive Panamanian food. Its open-air dining area is rustic by design, with a hedge of foliage around the edges and woven hats and baskets hanging from the wood columns. Meals include traditional Panamanian breakfast and such favorites as langostinos a la criolla (prawns in a tomato sauce) and lechón (pork roast), but you can also get some international dishes, such as pollo al limón (lemon chicken) and filet mignon. The pastas should be avoided. Some of the cheapest rooms in town are rented in the building next door.
