Highlight of vacation to Panama

Posted on 03 / 20 / 2012

I would go back to panama just to eat here again. There is no menu, you're asked your dietary restrictions and served a 1,2,3 or however many course meal you want. The restaurant is a short hike up into the rainforest and you truly feel secluded. You can sit and enjoy a cocktail while watching the birds and resident sloth in the trees surrounding Mantis. While this restaurant is extremely vegan friendly, fresh caught fish and chicken is also served. Ewan, the owner/chef employs the local children to bring him coconut water and limes. It was so good, I wet two nights of my 3 in panama. Panama is a very non-vegan friendly place. Finding Mantis was a dream come true. Definitely a must visit due to uniqueness, scenery and excellent food

Pros: One of a kind, Ewan familiar with all restrictive diets, Great prices
Cons: Water taxi from bocas, Required reservation, Bugs
