It's now called Veggie Moon SURF & TURF - Edit

Former seafood restaurant has now been renamed Veggie Moon Surf & Turf indicating a variety of meats and seafood being served. Many of the restaurants listed in HappyCow for Panama are nowhere near vegan/vegetarian friendly

Pros: Renamed

Cons: Meat & Seafood-focused restaurant

Somewhat disappointed... - Edit

I was in Panama city just for the weekend, and a friend made reservations here as I am vegan and was eating with 4 omnivores. I was impressed (by the reservation), as this restaurant would have been my first choice too—based on their description.

However, most of the menu items are seafood-based (the menu isn't available on-line); and most of the vegetarian items (such as the risotto) contain cheese/dairy. They said they could make the mushroom risotto without cheese, but then, wouldn't it just be fried rice?

So, I had the only item on the main menu that was vegan and contained protein — a rice noodle dish with tofu they claim is 'spicy'. To my dismay, the tofu was plain, barely cooked and soggy, the noodles had little flavour and all was doused in coconut milk. Not that I don't like coconut milk, but I was expecting spicy noodles, not coconut noodle stew (especially for the price they charge). I never waste food, but here, I did. It was almost sickening and I could not eat it. [(white) rice noodles, soft tofu cubes, and some snap peas in coconut milk with little other spices/flavour].

The appetizer however, was delicious. I had the quinoa-yam rolls which are a refreshing take on sushi. I wish I had ordered three plates of those and skipped the main course entirely!!!

The seafood-eaters were impressed, but this is much more a seafood than vegetarian restaurant.

Pros: Nice atmosphere , Good drinks (mean martinis) , Pleasing to seafood-eating friends

Cons: Few vegetarian items, Even fewer vegan items, Poor (veggie) mains

Loved it - Edit

Wandering around Old Town in Panama City and found this place. It's not cheap but it does have veggie options that they were able to change to Vegan. I had the veggie curry and thought it was really good. The restaurant is absolutely stunning as well.

Pros: Good meal, A few veggie options, Beautiful restaurant

Cons: Expensive
