Sure it's touristy, maybe to a fault, but Las Tinajas became a popular attraction for a reason. The primary draws here are the excellent costumed folkloric performances that take place at 9pm on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings ($5 cover charge, $10 minimum). This is one of the few restaurants with live entertainment in Panama City. The regional cuisine that's served—ropa vieja (spicy shredded beef over rice) and carimañolas (yucca casseroles layered with meat)—is just so-so, though it is perfectly acceptable for the price. This place fills up, so be sure to make a reservation.
