We were off to a late start on Sunday and didn’t arrive until 1:45 PM. There were still two tables that had people eating and two waiters there to take orders.
I had heard that the chef at the restaurant was good and I searched the menu to see something that I hadn’t had in a while. I wound up ordering Camarones Apanada (Fried Shrimp). I love fried shrimp and haven’t had any in some time. I hoped I would not be disappointed.
When the plate came out, I was pleasantly surprised. The shrimp were cooked just the right amount of time and they were very large. I am sure I had over 10 shrimp on my plate. I could not have been happier with my selection. Comparing the price and the amount of shrimp I got, this was a real bargain.
It had ordered french fries from several choices of potatoes and I liked the fresh vegetables.
Another ordered tilapia with herb seasoning.
It was ordered with mashed potatoes and also came with the cooked vegetables. It was described as very good and the buttery herb coating was said to be very favorable.
The last order at the table was camarones en montequilla ( shrimp cooked in butter).
I got to try one of these and it was excellent. The garlic butter flavor was perfect. As you can see this plate was ordered with patacones.
Three meals and all very well done. I can say that I was very satisfied with my meal and I will definitely return. Having this restaurant associated with the hotel definitely will make the hotel guests happy.
While I was waiting for the meal to come, I saw this unwanted guest strolling past the entrance.
When he noticed that this was a restaurant, he scurried off quickly to avoid showing up on the menu. An Iguana always reminds me that I am in a tropical location.
Here are the restaurant staff that will be there to take your orders and serve you. As you can see this restaurant has a very professional atmosphere. I enjoyed it very much.
If you stop into Los Naranjos, tell them you read about them on Chiriquí. You will find it down the street from Romeros in Dolegita on the right side of what is becoming the new hotel street, containing the following hotels. (Los Rivera, Iberia and Iberia Sur)
