Food a bit hit and miss

I have eaten at Casablanca many times and the food is very much hit and miss ranging from good to poor, hot to warm so it is difficult to accurately score the food. It’s a busy restaurant in a very nice square – Plaza Bolivar – which is located in the heart of Casco Viejo. The reason I visit... read more

The service was terrible, I had to repeatedly ask about my food after waiting over 30 minutes, and when it arrived it was very unappetizing in appearance... and I regret eating it as the fish was obviously not fresh! The waiters don´t seem to be interested in their job - the tip is automatically added to the bill so I... More

Sat on the park-side tables, great at night, though plastic. Worse thing was the street musician grifters. Best thing was the shared food plates and Caprinhas. Nice spot to spend with friends and enjoy the night air.

While passing by on a stroll through Casco Viejo i was stirred by the delicious aroma coming thru the side door of this restaurant while passing through, while shopping was the purpose of this walk, i could not get this place and that smell off my mind, so 2 hours later i returned. I chose a warm soup w/shrimp and... More

I am a foodie. This is by far my favorite restaurant of all the countries I have been to!! The food taste like it was by angels... We were sitting outside and when it started to rain, we were escorted inside under these big umbrellas (kina romantic).

After an intense afternoon thunderstorm that cooled the city down (finally)...we decided to venture back to Casco Viejo for an early dinner. We walked to Plaza Simon Bolivar and were pleasantly greeted by the host (he spoke fluent English and was very welcoming). We kept wandering a bit to take photos, but then returned. Cocktails were good and reasonably priced.... More

This restaurant is very elegant yet cozy at the same time. The food is good, nothing special but good quality regardless. The decor and mood of the restaurant is really what makes it stand out.

We ate here the first night and it was nice because it is in the center of Casco Viejo and you can sit outside so it is very nice ambiance. The food is fine, but not excellent.

I stopped in while touring Panama City with Barefoot Panama. We stopped in for lunch and the restaurant was bustling. I tried the seabass, which was excellent. We also tried their prongs, and they were very good as well.
