La Fragata Panama

“Only the best for our customers”

Located in Panama City Panama, “La Fragata” is one of the most interesting high-class dining experiences that a traveler can find while meandering through the city’s streets. A local favorite since 1985. Meaning “Warship,” or a “heavy boat;” “La Fragata” was originally founded by Spanish engineer Felipe Oliet, who wanted the restaurant to exemplify his personal and professional mission of: “Only the best for our customers.” Nearly 30 years later, La Fragata is still providing their endeared customers only the best local ingredients, perfect dishes, and local Panamanian hospitality.

A Unique Panamanian Dining Experience

While the food is daring and unique in-itself, the true experience of dining at La Fragata comes in the elegant ambiance of the restaurants interior and exteriors. Modeled after a true “frigate,” or seafaring vessel, the restaurant exemplifies Panama’s roots as a largely-fishing based economy, while showcasing the inviting culture of the Panamanian culture. Restaurant guests are invited to “come aboard” La Fragata and enjoy a voyage exploring the culinary bests that the region has to offer.

The concept — created by international hospitality interior designers: “Sara Battelli and Partners” — truly brings out the overall characteristic of the restaurant, while still exemplifying the luxury and high-standards that La Fragata has been recognized-for worldwide.
