A popular dish of raw fish or other seafood marinated in lime or lemon juice that is healthy and refreshing.
"Inspired by my upbringing in Panama, Central America - Fishing with my Dad in both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, picking fresh mangos at the bus stop for breakfast & epic surfing trips (I vividly remember my first barrel). I wanted to bring that feeling to Wrightsville Beach with a staple in the Panamanian diet, ceviche, tropical fruit, plantains, etc.."
- Hunter Tiblier, Owner.

Get Hooked On Ceviche's Panama Food With A Kick
“I had the ropa vieja – braised and shredded beef in a spicy pepper broth served with coconut rice and mixed vegetables. The dish was piping hot, flavorful and spicy without being either too rich or too peppery, as well as quite filling. With some of the house-made aji chombo hot sauce, which has a secret blend of peppers, it built up quite the kick..” - Jason Frye
Enjoy The Tastes of Panama
“Enjoy the tastes of Panama right here in Wilmington! This cozy Latin-American restaurant houses a bar made of reclaimed wood straight from Panama as well as a large deli counter for easy ordering. Relish their signature dish after their namesake that involves the unique cooking style of chopped fish in acidic juices that "cook" the meat rather than using a hot pan. Other special dishes will include arroz con pollo and ropas Viejas.”
Panama's National Dish - It's The Best Cure For A Hangover
“Entrees include a range of Panamanian inspired dishes, ranging from daily fresh catch specials to the Central American favorite Ropa Vieja, a dish of braised flank steak in a spicy tomato pepper broth served over coconut rice. Pair a salad with Panama’s national dish, Sancocho. It’s full of chicken, corn, yucca, plantains and sweet potatoes in spicy cilantro broth. According to the locals, it’s the best cure for a hangover!”
Best Of Wilmington 2016
"This lively Wrightsville Beach-based bungalow brings earthy Latin American flavors and a legit lineup of citrusy Caribbean cuisine. Ceviche’s menu is chock full of locally sourced, Panama-infused plates like their fresh-as-can-be seafood concoctions. Other can’t miss items include imaginative brunch dishes like the Chorizo Frittata and lunchtime favorite Mojo-marinated Pork Cubano."
The Little Yellow Bungalow
“The little yellow bungalow at the corner of Wrightsville and Eastwood Roads offers delicacies inspired by the Panamanian dishes owner Hunter Tiblier grew up eating."
An Impressive Selection of Rum
“And that bar, which now boasts a full liquor license? It's becoming a premier destination for rum drinkers. Tiblier said he's on a mission to amass one of the region's largest collections of rums. He even has his eye set on the ultra-exclusive Black Tot "Last Consignment" British Royal Navy Rum, a label that can run up to $250 per pour. Ceviche's is one of very few North Carolina bars stocking Seco Herrerano, a liquor, like rum, that's distilled from sugar cane. It's considered the national beverage of Panama.” - Paul Stephen
