A Sophisticated Take on
Panamanian Cuisine

Beachfront Dining at
Isla Palenque

On a tropical island vacation, one of the last things you want to worry about is the food.

Let us put your mind at ease. Our culinary approach at Isla Palenque is hyper-local, sustainable and delicious.

Menus Designed to Encourage The Sampling of Local Foods

Changing with the seasons, our dining menus are an integral part of experiencing the island.

Every appetizer, entree and cocktail we’ll serve you is imbued with Panama and its culinary traditions, the international flavor influences that have traveled to the isthmus, and produce from our very own organic farm. 

We know that sometimes it’s good to refresh the palate with something familiar too. We include “safe and familiar” options in our menus for just this reason.

Many of us have become more conscious of our foodways — and we believe this is a wonderful thing.

At Isla Palenque Resort, we promise you locally-sourced, seasonal produce; grass-fed, hormone-free beef and poultry, and responsibly caught seafood.

We’re Dock to Dish certified. This means we receive deliveries of freshly caught seafood from the fishermen right down the road.

As an island, this is so important to us — Dock to Dish ensures all our sea life is protected and we support our local fishermen.

Crafted to Perfection

“We’re tough food critics, and my wife is a professional chef, but seriously, our minds were blown every time … The food was literally five star, world class, hand curated, best of the best, natural, fresh, organic – every item we had was crafted to tasteful perfection, which is hard to find anywhere, let alone on a private island.”

– Max, Louisiana
