Great Place to watch WorldCup Football

Stopped in to watch the Brasil vs Columbia game. Place got really busy but the friendly staff had no problem. Great selection of beer and a fair price I did not eat here but I really liked the vibe of this place.

We went to El Sitio del Casco for Burger week. What a disappointment. Poor service with LONG delays, bland food and expensive decent beer. We ordered nachos for the kids at our table, and they were tasteless. It was a bunch of semi-stale nachos thrown on a plate with some meat, a dollop of sour cream and a little bit... More

We chose to visit this place because of the many different brands of beer they offer, however I was most surprised by their great burgers. The meat is of great quality and the service is ok - the only downside was the fact that people were smoking outside, which I understand is penalised by law in Panama and nobody did... More

The old city area worth visiting : do not miss some very old and preserved churchs, understand the rich stories beyond all the past centuries, visit the 'Placa de Francia' with Ferdinand de Lesseps statue, as well as commémorations to the slaves and the founders of the Canal. Buy a local ice cream with sirups hand made in front of... More

We went with a group of friends to this beer pub, and had nice burgers. They were done as we requested and the place has a nice atmosphere. Are they the best burgers in Panama City? I do not think so, as there are MANY places in Panama City with very nice hamburgers. There is a good selection of beers... More

The place is an ok bar. It took us about 10 minutes to find the place as the street they are on is currently being torn up and so the entrance is obscured by 10-foot construction barriers. It had a decent selection of beers -- there were about 30 or so on the menu, mostly American-style lighter beers with a... More

We sought this place out because we're beer geeks and this place was listed as "the best beer selection in Panama City." We found it on one of the charming little streets in Casco Viejo (it's also on the Casco Viejo tourist map that you can pick up for free). When we got there 2 guys were fixing the door,... More

Or so says the menu and they are not wrong! Tucked down a little street in Casa Viejo, 'El Sitio del Casco' is a neat little restaurant, live sport but not turned up so loud that you can't hear your dinner conversation. If you like your beer then this is the place to go, after a two week diet of... More
