We had a pretty good diner in that restaurant. The meat is very good and the service is professional. One the best restaurant in the neighborhood.

Food was excellent--shared the shrimp appetizer--really nice smoky flavour. Each of us had a different chicken dish and wow ! amazing flavours; the mashed potato side was outstanding. Portions were adequate;... More

We were there for a dinner. We had a reservation. It was a bit late, and we asked if we could have our place earlier and it did not create any trouble. The person who greated us was rather charming and well-mannered and it did create a good ambiance for the evening. The menu is conventional. People who are not... More

What a difference to a previous restaurant where we suffered over cooked steaks. This was the opposite - tasty ,well seasoned rib eyes ,properly marbled and expertly cooked and rested. Accompanied by 1/2 heads of roasted garlic, a lovely mushroom dish and very tasty fries you could not want a better lunch ,washed down with a cold Panamanian beer. Specials... More

It's a nice place with a lively atmosphere in a good location close to Calle Uruguay. The food was really great but service was a bit slow and confused.

Market was a gem we ate at for breakfast several mornings and for dinner once. Given our limited Spanish it was good to find a place with good food that had menus in English and whose wait staff could understand some English. The prices are reasonable and the food most of the time as very good. I had the French... More

The ribeye steak was terrific. Unfortunately, the waiter disappeared for most of the evening. And what's with playing fake wrestling on a giant flat screen TV during dinner? Didn't fit the otherwise pleasant space.

Just returned from Panama City. The first restaurant we tried was Market and we liked it so much, we returned two days later for another meal. We went at "off" hours, so did not encounter an overly crowded atmosphere. It was still plenty busy though. I tried the grilled corvina which was excellent. My companion had the cheeseburger and was... More
