Set in the landmark former home of a famous pollera dancer named Ramona Lefevre, La Trona is one of the most original restaurants in Panama City. The décor combines wall-size Renaissance oil paintings, lots of mirrors, coffered ceilings, and red curtains, resulting in a space that looks a little bit like a cross between Liberace's house and Graceland. There are several intimate dining rooms, each with a completely different feel, though each is classy in its own way. Chef Alfonso De La Espriella's food is just as adventurous as the design. You might start with a Peruvian-style tiradito (crudo), and then move on to duck magret with a tamarind sauce. The wine list is superb as well.
