I have my favorite restaurants in Coronado, Panama that I look forward to dining at every year for the past 5 years at least.
Luna Rosa, famed Italian cuisine set in a charming house and outdoor covered veranda (bohio) at the tucked away corner of Coronado's Roberto Eisenman fork, with the store (La Cosita) opposite, the church that was just there until recently and the new condo before Coronado Bay. This restaurant has only grown more popular with the new owners' enhancements, but Bruno and his chef made Luna Rosa renowned with its great authentic menu and good wine, even at $4 a glass. I miss Bruno's love of opera, but the Italian couple there are careful to maintain the genuine atmosphere and quality (the chef is still there).
Coronado prides itself on good restaurants and there are enough, about eight right in Coronado plus the Coronado Golf and Beach Club, which are for members and their guests. There's Todo al Carbon, open grill indoor-outdoor restaurant, run by the wonderful Vladimir, who makes sure all is served fresh and offers GREAT quality for so little cost; $6 for a grilled half chicken with salad and your choice of rice, potatoes, yucca, patacones(fried banana) ..and add wine for $3, beer for $2 or lemonade for $1.50. Yes, these are typical prices in Panama, but you don't always get this quality. The chicken is succulent and I've had American guests that never forget it. More and more new restaurants are opening in the malls and along the highway. There is no shortage of good to great food at unbelievably fair prices in and around Coronado, Panama.
