Disappointing steaks and slow service

Our party of 5 were about the first in for a midday lunch at 12 following recommendatios. Shown to table and then pretty much forgotten about. Slow service I... read more

Coming from the states you always feel the lack of quality fresh fish without having the need to break your bank! This place is an answer to that problem! I got hooked to their ceviche, fried eggplant and flan too! But the best part is the variety of fresh fish items that you have on theur menu! Multiple different varieties... More

I have been several times to this restaurant, it is not fancy, it is very popular with the locals and with tourists. I love the seafood soup, always fresh, and full of sea food and fish, and also the octopus on the grill, or a steak on the grill, it has always been good or excellent. Service is ok, sometimes...

We went here with friends around Brunch time on a Sunday. Unassuming on the outside, plain sturdy interior with nothing fancy. Packed & bustling with locals. (always a good sign). This looks like my kinda place! Our friends (who've eaten here lots) insisted we try the Octopus. Not one of my favorite things to eat, but what the heck. It... More

Jimmy´s is known to have the best ¨Corvina Apanada¨ in the area. There is no hit of miss at Jimmy´s; anything you order is certain to be good. From seafood to Greek food, we have never been dissapointed. Whether dining as couples, family or for business, it will always be a viable option amoung many locals.

My husband and I were given this recommendation by several people in Panama City (from attorneys to other restaurant owners), so we tried it for lunch. We had taken the Hop On Hop Off Bus tour and got off the Atlapa Convention Center stop. The waiter did not speak very much English (from Columbia), but we all managed to get... More

Ate lunch here during a private day tour of the city. Our guide suggested it for trying grilled octopus, a dish my husband wanted to try. I loved my greek salad and the fried eggplant was delicious too. My daughter ordered the garlic shrimp and it was perfect. The place is frequented by tourists and locals alike, very busy and...
