Closed..... But not a surprise! I last wrote a review of this restaurant in April 2012 when it was unbelievably rated as “No.One in Panama”. I wrote at the time rather generously about it and said it was by no means anywhere near “Number One” by any standard of imagination. Seeing a report dated in September 2012, that it was... More

We of course went to Marina Marina after all the top rated reviews we had read. We found a clean, white, space, empty but for one table, presumably after the lunch crush on a week day. . The menu is interesting. It sparked our interest immediately - we are always seeking delicious fresh salads on Panama menus and the South... More

This is definitely our favourite restaurants in Panama City. We will miss being there for our Sunday brunch - especially with our dear friends - HolyCrossSanPedro. Also meeting business people for lunch and an occasional dinner by ourselves in the relaxing atmosphere. The food was exceptional and the service the same. We will definitely miss being there.

It has been almost two years since I first reviewed this wonderful restaurant. Food is still as tasty and well presented as ever. Quite a feat to maintain such standards in Panama City!

We liked the presentation of the food and the service, it is really first rate. Everything was very fresh and moderately priced. We enjoyed our dinner at this nicely decorated restaurant. Try the margaritas!

Not a fancy dining experience, but the food was excellent at reasonable prices. Try the Brazilian seafood stew with the pineapple cake for desert.

Food is not tasty, no ambiance, decent o poor service, pricey, not much of a location, and way overpriced!!! This is a 2 star restaurant at best and should not be considered in the top 100 restaurants in panama let alone top ten.
