Good standard food.

Here you can always find good food on low prices, their sandwiches are very good and their fries are also special. My favorite is pork leg sándwich.

My review is mainly based on the wait at Nikos because it was late at night so all I got was french fries which were good. But the wait in line was terrible. The locals were patient but me being from the US and maybe being very accustomed to fast service, I was really disappointed with how long I waited... More

This was a cheap place to eat by the causeway. It is not supposed to be "fancy" or gourmet. It is what it is. Fast, cheap, filling. A lot of working class people work here. My wife thought the arroz con pollo was delicious. I opted for a sandwich that they made fresh in front of me. It was pretty... More

Nice cafeteria to go to for "cheap eats". Flavors were good but most everything was served cool. 3 side dishes with a main course for around $6. Decent number of choices. I wouldn't hesitate o go back if what I wanted was a quick, cheap fill up.

Finally was able to try Niko Cafe after passing by it for almost 10 months. Place is always full so we thought it must be good. We went on a Sunday morning for brunch and the place is almost full. If you want to have just bread or pastries with your coffee, there is a separate kiosk which is right... More

With several years experience in consistent efficient food service Nikos is always there when you want a quick lunch or dinner to go. Their gyros are the best this side the Mediterranean. Pastry and bakery inside ensure a steady supply of freshly baked products. Arrive early for lunch as the place is packed on week days.

I ate Panamenian soup and one sandwich. They serve a lot, so was too much for me. Is really good because they have 24 hours service, and have some restaurants in different parts of Panama City.

We went for dinner but not super hungry. My friend was craving the clams so we had that for an appetizer and then had a pepperoni pizza for dinner. I've never had steamed clams in the shell but they smelled so good and there was a small mountain of them, so I dug in! They were very good and the... More

This review is for the two locations near the MetroMall. Cafeteria dinning with an on the wall menu that is difficult to read. The price includes 3 sides with your entry for about $7-8. Expect to choose from typical Panamanian food items. Really good selection of fruit juices, so forgo the soda dispenser. There is a separate cafe for pastries... More
