If you go to Niko´s after midnight, you will find some party people having a popular sandwich (club sandwich, gyro´s, ham and cheese) with a combo (fries, fried plantain and a beverage) or a sancocho (chicken broth) to refill energies or to get ready to go home. During the day, it is a very popular restaurant with prices very accesible... More

I was in Panama City for a long layover. My Panamanian private tour guide asked me what I wanted for lunch and I said local food. He took me here because it was cheap and quick. We were the only ones in line but it still took a while. The food looked great. It's cafeteria style. You just tell the... More

Went to Nikos this morning for breakfast. Another place people raved about. Don't get it. It's a cafeteria style place. They had no bacon, no hash browns, they had good scrambled eggs. I ordered a piece of meat that looked like BBQ ham, which was closer to BBQ leather and a fried tortilla and a ginger ale. $7.25. I just... More

Try the Sancocho soup. The servings are plentiful. You grab a tray and tell the pain what to want - cafeteria style.

It's a combo of cafeteria, fast food, coffee and pastry shop. Inexpensive, lots of variety, tasty. No cup lids = Check out the machine that puts a cover on your drink (cashier).

***We went to the one on Calle 50 infront of the Delta gas station*** Everything was closed so we decided to try this place...so glad we did! There was so much to choose from traditional breakfast to lunch (as I am American and we eat different foods at different times) dishes. The variety was awesome, staff were friendly and we... More

My review is mainly based on the wait at Nikos because it was late at night so all I got was french fries which were good. But the wait in line was terrible. The locals were patient but me being from the US and maybe being very accustomed to fast service, I was really disappointed with how long I waited... More

This was a cheap place to eat by the causeway. It is not supposed to be "fancy" or gourmet. It is what it is. Fast, cheap, filling. A lot of working class people work here. My wife thought the arroz con pollo was delicious. I opted for a sandwich that they made fresh in front of me. It was pretty... More

Nice cafeteria to go to for "cheap eats". Flavors were good but most everything was served cool. 3 side dishes with a main course for around $6. Decent number of choices. I wouldn't hesitate o go back if what I wanted was a quick, cheap fill up.
