I believe this restaurant is the worst place I have even been. Drinks were missing and were continuously being replaced by drinks which were not the ones we had ordered (which were ordered by a Panamanian) during a long hot timely process of 45 minutes. When the food arrived the starters were cold, some were missing and were surprisingly accompanied... More

The outdoor seating is in a perfect spot. Service was a bit slow, but it was a nice evening out. The food was good, nothing spectacular, but a good variety. Maybe I'd go just for drinks and an appetizer. Moderately priced, $11-$26 per entree.

We started the evening by walking through the old city. Wonderful architecture and lots of character. The area has been cleaned up a great deal and you can see police in just about every corner, so it is a pretty safe part of town. The restaurant takes over part of the plaza in the evenings. We sat outside, had some... More

A dinner outdoors at the Casablanca is a pleasant experience. The menu is simple but sufficient and the Catch of the day with sea bass was well prepared. A local desert speciality was delicious. Service was good and unrushed and prices quite reasonable.

Cold food, very long wait, no communication between staff, arrogant and unfriendly manager, worst service, worst restaurant. AVOID!!!! At the end of a week of work we have decided to celebrate it in this restaurant. We were 7 but the place was full so the manager told us to wait it won't be long. At the same time he takes... More

My wife and I had lunch and sat across the street in the park where they also had tables with shade. The service was very good and the shrip stuffed fresh pinapple was amazing.

We finished our 2-week trip to in Panama City. During the visits in Cartagena and elsewhere in Panama City, we had excellent food, some better than others. But by far the worst food was at Casablanca restaurant. My wife and ordered Caprese salad, only to be greeted by hard, faded tomatoes with spongy mozzarella, to be followed by overly firm... More

We stopped by for drinks after walking around the area. We sat outside, across the street from the restaurant on the piazza. The drinks were good and the service was good.

Beautifully located in a charming colonial plaza, in Casco Viego, with tables outside and relaxed atmosphere. Some street musicians make the moment nostalgic. In the evening when we were there the waiters, a young woman and a young man, were just perfect waiters. We had some warm starters with local flavor which were delicious and a tasteful sangria with plenty... More

Our group of 4 ate here after our first choice, Milano, on the same plaza, was full. (I can't find Milano in Trip Advisor-I would rate it 5 star). The entire plaza was hopping this night and we had to wait a few minutes for a table-no big deal. But then we had to wait, and wait, and wait for... More
