The food is certainly authentic, very tasty and at a reasonable price. The diverse menu has something for everyone and the friendly staff will take great patience to explain the different dishes to those not familiar with this cuisine. The ambiance could be better, but the food makes up for it.

Nothing special...but decent food at good prices. It was always quite crowded at dinner time so much be popular. They have free WiFi. We ate here the first day of our visit to PA.

There were a multitude of restaurants and bars in the Bella Vista section of Panama City. From the street, Habibi's looked like a fun restaurant. Although there was a large outside dining area, it was apparently already too full for the available serving staff, so we were seated at a small table inside.

The service was descent although Panama as a whole needs better wait staff. The food, however was worth waiting for and we wished that we had found this place sooner.

It was nice to sit outside on the patio. They have hookah if that's your thing (we did not partake). The food was only ok at best. Wasn't too thrilled with my meal.
