The best we found

Near to Le Meridian, this was the best place we ate during our two weeks in Panama. Both for quality and price this place was exceptional. After trying several other restaurants this became our default restaurant. Fortunately, Reynaldo, the concierge at Le Meridian, recommended it. The place is... read more

We had the California hamburgers. We are use to US Mid-west, corn feed beef and this is one of the few places, in our 8 years in Panama, that we can eat the BEEF. We also enjoyed spinach and onion rings. The staff was friendly and service was good. The atmosphere is great as well.

Enjoyed the great Colossal Burger. I ordered it medium rare and it came out perfect. The staff was attentive and nice and did a fantastic job.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times on different trips. The grilled sea bass with yuca is excellent. Vegetable and fries sides also good.

The best casual meal in Panama. Fish and ceviche were my meals and they were outstanding. Service was very good and English is spoken for easy ordering.

We walked in and all we could see was bottles of liquor lining the walls. You can see the red Market sigh from down the street and were told to go there. When we seen the menu I was ready to walk back out because most of the items were over $30. It was very good and I was certainly... More

This was the worst meal we have had in Panama. The so-called spicy Moroccan salad was a tasteless mixture carrot and couscous with no dressing .When I asked for dressing I was given a small cup of oil . The price was $9.50! My husband said his fish sandwich was reminiscent of a fast food sandwich. Also expensive.

Walking around looking for a place for lunch we came across The Market. We were not disappointed. Food was well prepared and just as expected from the menu description. The place was lively even at 2:30 in the afternoon. My husband had the fish and chips made using sea bass (corvino) which were lightly battered and delicious. I had the... More

An urban industrial chic type of restaurant that lets it's food do the talking. Great steaks, varied menu with al past everything you could want, and an expansive (not expensive) wine list. The service is simply excellent, I've eaten there about a dozen times now and never been let down. It's very near the Hilton and the Waldorf, about 50... More
