I have been eating here for 4 years and I like the white sauce Spaghetti with Shrimp. But 4 years ago this plate was $6.50 and then a few months later it went up and again it went up etc. etc. Now about 3 months ago it was $10.95

If you are staying at the hotel, the food in the primary restaurant is pretty good. There is a secondary restaurant that serves primarily Italian that is not bad either, but if you are expecting original Italian, you might be a little disappointed. Overall not bad, and better than most of what is available in David.

I visited the historic hotel for lunch. The food was served buffet-style with both traditional Panamanian fare as well as nice fruit and dessert options. The restaurant was well air-conditioned and seating was spacious and enjoyable.

We eat there often for a good lunch, but the Sunday Champaign Brunch is our favorite. It is a buffet style event with a few choices to ones liking. Different types of salads, meats, fruits and deserts. The Champaign is complementary, and you can fill your plate as many times as you'd like. The Hotel is one of the best,... More
