Just a great place to hangout

Walked down to Smileys to have a drink while we were waiting for the water truck to get to the B&B. It was almost empty as it was mid afternoon and the owner was there. He took the time to chat with us.....had a drink and really enjoyed the atmosphere

Great Ribs! Delicious Carolina Pulled Pork. If you are not from the South, you cannot rank the Pulled pork. Nice atmosphere. Excellent and attentive service.

Service was great. Food was okay. Had a deli sandwich which had more bread then meat & fixings. Could load up on the fixings a lot more. Price was okay. Pulled pork sandwich was good but small for the price. All an all it was okay.

We enjoyed a couple of great lunches at Smiley's! The service was good and prices very reasonable. We did not attend, but heard they hosted a live band on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Sounds like that is a main attraction for the locals in Pedasi, we're sorry to have missed it.

The fish was very tasty, and lots of it. The ribs could have been a little more tender and sauce served served with them, but were okay. Fun atmosphere and a band played on Friday night! Nice and clean too.

I guess it's not quite fair to expect many vegetarian options when traveling in Panama. After one week of meandering through the country we've decided that Panamanians as well as Expats love to eat meat. And that vegetables are hard to come by on a menu. Smiley's is a comfortable restaurant on the main drag in Pedasi where many Americans... More

It is a restaurant with nice outdoor seating. It also serves great cocktails. We have tried the margarita, which was really nice. Food was basic and OK, but not more than that. Service by staff could also have been a bit better. Just an additional note to the review: they also have live music which is great as we heard,... More
