Good restaurant in Casco Viejo

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.

The food was not good, I asked for a Sea Bass it was over cooked and the taste was off. However what concerned me the most was the facility which is being remodeled whereas the electric wires were hanging all over the place (see the picture) I don't think that meets the minimum security requirements for the clients and the...

The Casablanca has a great atmosphere at night….like being in Europe and eating at a sidewalk restaurant. There were musicians that a occasionally came by and sang in the street or the grassy area by the statue. The food was tasty and the service was good. A little pricey…….but that’s to be expected in the tourist area of Casco Viejo.

Did not eat a meal here but had the most delicious mango juice I have ever had and the person waiting on us was really pleasant. The square where the restaurant is situated is full of atmosphere and charm.

Food was good but nice lady waiting on us was on time and knew her stuff. Sometimes this is as important as the food. I like service

Food was either bland or overcooked, side dishes were cold, staff was more interested in selling drinks to the adults and sugary sodas to the kids (big no no in our family) than taking the order correctly and/or bringing the food out on time. We ate whatever was edible and ran out to get away from the deafening noise and... More

Very nice. And the oldest place in Casco. You can see the president and first lady if you sit outside. Check our the churches in the area.

We sat across the street from the restaurant on the patio set up on the sidewalk of the plaza. Great seating and great people watching. Food was great. Best mussels I've ever had.

I must admit it looked a little touristic when we first passed Casablanca, but compared to the other places in casco viejo it's definitely a plus to be able to sit outside on the square. Good food too and not more expensive then other 'American'-style restaurants around there. The Pineapple filled with fish platter was great (so was the sangria)
