The staff at Casablanca was very friendly and helpful. They let me borrow a phone to call my friends who were going to meet me in San Felipe, so I decided to stay there a get a sandwich. They also have good bartenders. I would definitely visit again.

This was one of our first lunch stops in the colonial quarter and what a find! Service was friendly and attentive. Food was great. The Yuca (cassava) fries are an absolute must!!

We have enjoyed dining at this popular restaurant several times over the years. Yesterday's visit was our last. We were a party of two but informed the host that we were waiting for a third. While waiting for our third diner to show, we were approached at least every three to four minutes asking for our order. We had ordered... More

After spending the whole morning sightseeing our taxi left us at Casco Viejo. We walked around bought a 25 usd Montecristi Panama hat and decided to lunch àt the fish market. A sudden summer storm made us change our mind and we entered the nearest place. Casablanca turned out am excellent food choice. We had the sea food dish inside... More

I wasn't sure what to make of the mixed reviews, but figured to give it a go as it was a beautiful night and they have outside real estate in Bolivar Plaza in Casa Viejo with some live background music (a harp the evening I was there). It is definitely a popular place, packed with locals too, which is always... More

Went to Casablanca after a bad experience with another restaurant nearby and so decided to try here for the main course, table of 7, service was attentive and fast, they assigned 3 wait staff to us. Food came out hot, quickly and everyone got their meals at the same time, often an issue in restaurants in Panama. Highly recommended.

As one of three restaurants around this popular square Casablanca attracts a wide range of diners and we chose it because several local people were eating there which we usually see as a good sign. However, for the price, the portions we got were disappointing. There were two pork rib dishes and having ordered one we were brought the other.... More

We were walking and decided to eat dinner here. Good choice. The fish was great and very fresh. The staff was very nice and didn't hurry us at all. We sat under umbrellas at tables right on the plaza and watched all the people.

We were a large group and understandably our food took a while to come out. My problem wasn't so much the wait but the quality of the food. Some of the meals were tasty enough but the portions were small but others were very average (mind included) and I was left feeling a little disappointed. There are so many great... More

I always enjoy my time at this restaurant, the food is delicious and the location and ambience is great since you're practically in the heart of Old Town in Panama. I always prefer to sit outside since the restaurant inside can be a little cramped and also can get loud. We had made reservations for about 20 people, and the... More
