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

This is just the place if one wants to enjoy a rich bowl of "Sancocho" (chicken soup), chicken, meat, rice, beans, and many other Panamanian delicacies. If you have never tried Panamanian food, go early morning or during lunch to enjoy a great plate of Panamanian food.

This is a local buffet style restaurant in downtown Panama City. It caters to the local business clientele and the food is typical of Panama. The food is like buffet food anywhere just so so. There is a lot of variety to choose from. The bakery at the front was slow to take my order but eventually I got the... More

It was 24 hr nikos cafe. Food looked good and smelled good. We order gyros, look decent enough. Then as we walked our way to the fountain drinks there was an enormous roach on the counter and everyone acted normal. Nuff said. Stay away.
