Excellent Lebanese Cuisine

The setting is pretty basic, although it does have outdoor seating. The food was really good, some of the best middle eastern I've had. Their sampler plates are generous and really tasty.

Habibi's has always served delicious food. I have visited them a few times over the last few months and have had the same, good experience. I thought it was just me but my co-workers have also eaten here and echo my comments.

After arriving in Panama City, we were really looking forward to indulging in some good Lebanese food. Habibi's, located on Calle Uruguay, was recommended to us and it had the advantage of being within walking distance.

We went out for dinner with friends and on the recommendation of a friend we decided to try Habibi's. Well we certainly weren't disappointed! The food was incredible. We had appetizers and a mixed platter with added meat skewers. It was fabulous. Our waiter was very helpful and although our Spanish isn't that good, he was very patient and did... More

The place has nice indoor and outdoor setting, but it's about the food. The drinlks are good, the house wine above expectation. The menu is extensive with middle eastern and local fare. Th ceviche was lovely and chimichurri with my baby steak was just perfect. We had an superb dinner here.
