We arrived at 6:00 pm opening time for 6:11 sunset…They changed opening to 6:30-wouldn’t let us in to take any pics…So me missed their “advertised” gorgeous sunset!

Panaviera Rooftop Bar at Ocean Sun Casino has by far one of the nicest views in the entire city and I visited many times before; the drinks are alright,
though slightly overpriced.
The service at this bar is not great, and after this visit I doubt that I'll go back.
It was a national holiday, so I called to verify the hours of the rooftop bar. My friends and I arrived shortly before 6pm, just to be told that they weren't quite open. We had to wait another 30 minutes, but we were allowed to wait in the bar area and enjoy the view, but weren't allowed to take any photos. We did not understand why.
75 min after we arrived, the music was turned on, and another 15 min a server finally came to our table to take the order.
I questioned the server why they charged $7 for a "batido/jugo de Maracuja" (without alcohol), which was more expensive than the wine or some other alcoholic cocktails our table has ordered. When I questioned the price, I got an impolite response. We were also not permitted glasses of water, which is common everywhere in Panama.

To make things worse, I ended up with food poisoning from the food I ordered and I was up all night and the following day feeling awful.

I truly believe this place has great potential and could be such a great place, especially for tourists. And, as mentioned before, one of the best views in Panama City.

I went to Panaviera after finding out about it online and have to agree with the other underwhelmed reviews.

The only good think about the bar is the view, which, by the way isn't actually panoramic. The strange architecture protrudes out so you can't see all the way around. Odd.

It's also difficult to find, the staff on the ground floor of the casino didn't seem to know where it was either which was strange.

In addition to that, the staff were inattentive and generally disinterested. The drinks are expensive (they also managed to mess up my drinks order) and the bar itself leaves much to be desired - the view is literally the only reason to visit.

If however you want better drinks and overall customer experience, go more or less anywhere in Casco Viejo for a better quality time.

Amazing views and a great place for a cocktail with a good selection of small plates. The bar is small but worth the visit. We went for drinks and were Very pleased with service and menu.

Went for the evening buffet. Price @ $24 each was ok (included a glass of wine each, lousy wine!). Buffet was limited, too much staff for too few clients.

I visited this 66th floor deck after dark. The view of the city lights was simply outstanding! These is a must see when visiting Panama City.

View of Panama City is amazing.

Furniture and facilities appear old and worn and not very inviting.

They had happy hour specials on drinks- two for price of one. Very hard to get any service.

View is the only reason to consider visit.

My husband and I wanted to check out the view even though we’d read bad reviews of the service. We had passion fruit mojitos, ceviche dos mares, and fresh guacamole - so good! And our server was always around to help us. Worth the visit!

I had a guest and she wanted to go to the "Trump" tower to see the view and have a drink. The place had 3 customers, music was so low you could bearly hear it and the menu was super expensive. We ordered a diet coke, Perrier, vodka tonic and guacamole with chips that came to $40. I had to get up 3 times to pay the bill since nobody was attending to us. Finally, once I had paid my friend who had the vodka tonic asked for a glass of water before driving home and he denied it to her stated that the manager prohibits any customer from getting any tap water, very rudely. He then brushed us rudely off and directed us to the 1st floor if we wanted water. Once we got to the 1st floor we realized that they gave FREE water bottles on the first floor but on the 66 you can't even get a glass of tap water. Although the view was beautiful and the guacamole was delicious the lack of human courtesy and manners was not worth it. Maybe why it was empty on quincena on a Friday night.
