This restaurant was within a block's walking distance of the Marriott Hotel, and had a nice outdoor patio. The food was average, the waitstaff spoke broken english, and was prompt and helpful.

We were in a seminar at the Marriott a block away and found this restaurant . They serve local foods and local beers. We only had an hour for lunch so timing was important. The menu had all Panamanian foods you could want. We choose the fish items on the menu and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Our spanish is not... More

The Costa Azul restaurant was renovated and it now has a more modern look. The menu is pretty large with several options for sandwiches, soups and breakfast options. Service is good and prices are reasonable. I understand that the restaurant is open 24 hours a day so it is a good option for a late dinner or early breakfast. The... More

It doesn't look like much, a casual diner atmosphere with good portions and reasonable prices. The food was quite good, I had the Cazuela De Mariscos and it was very well prepared and tasty. The service could use some improvement, the waiters were not very attentive.

There was a time when most cafeterias were like Costa Azul. Heavily air conditioned, with cranky waitresses, the food is still really good. The soups are thick and a Merlin itself.my favorite is the Caldo Gallego. The steak sandwiches are fantastic, especially the steak sandwich with grilled onions. The wine is chilled and dirt cheap. If you only have a... More

The ambiance in this place is lacking, or at least it was when we were there on a Friday night. It was about 8pm and the place was empty. The menu is interesting and we only tried seafood. The mussels were just ok, nothing great. Service was good. I would not go back as there are many other, better restaurants... More
