“New setting, old friend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was the first time I had visited Market since it had moved to its new location; the old building is now demolished. The new building is bigger than the old offering more covers and is about to be expanded further with the opening of a speciality delicatessen, offering imported fare from Europe.
The menu remains the same with reliable old favourites, typically good steaks and burgers, and their special hot artichoke and cheese dip. Served by efficient and friendly staff, same friendly management.
A relief to find all is well after the move.

“Recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Food is good, if you're craving American food, this is the place to go. Prices are reasonable, and they do have some more Panamanian type food if you want. Nice ambience, would definitely go back.

“Dinner and Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Dinner at Market was very good but brunch was even better! Not many restaurants in Panama offer brunch.

“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

This is one of our regular dinner spots on our monthly business trips to Panama. The bartender(s) makes a mean vodka martini and the sliders with blue cheese and bacon are a must. The fried chicken, hamburgers and steaks are fantastic. I would pass on the spinach and artichoke dip and the ribs as they are average, but everything else is consistently yummy.

“Wonderful, friendly place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We were visiting Panama over New Year's and this was one of a very few places that were open on the evening of January 1st. Since we were staying at a hotel within walking distance of the restaurant this was a plus but the atmosphere and the food were all terrific. Service was timely with a lot of attention to details like refilling wine glasses...The menu had a variety of choices for meat, fish and pasta lovers and the prices were comparable with the rest of the area eateries. The restaurant itself is set back and a bit easy to miss on a walk past. Upon entering it is nicely set up with a large extra room for when it is very busy. The decor is pleasant with wine bottles arranged along the walls. We were a party of 6 and I appreciated the great space between the tables.
