We tried Casablanca on the recommendation of our taxi driver (we often find the best places this way!). We arrived at the tail end of lunch so we had the place pretty much to ourselves. The waiter suggested a special passionfruit mojito which was EXCELLENT and was definitely the highlight of the visit. We tried the whitefish ceviche which was... More

Went on a Wednesday night, hadn't been back in about a year. What happened!!! Awful service!! Waitress spilled sangria on my mother's white pants and on my white scarf and didn't even bring us something to clean it with.... The calamari was really greasy and seems old... Really tough to eat. The hamburger with different cheeses was shiny from the... More

On a recent trip to Panama, we ventured over to the Casco Viejo area and found this gem of a restaurant. We opted to dine outside on the Square and enjoy the evening. Food was locally focused and delicious.

This place has wifi!! Great atmosphere with amazing food. Seriously this is the best place to eat in that square. The ceviche was very fresh and they had plantains as the chips.

This was in a great location and had been recommended, but upon ordering and eating there, found that it was good, but nothing great. Catering to tourists, you don't get the personal service that the more local places seemed to have. Good for a decent meal, but you might as well sit outside on the plaza and take in the... More

While we were in Panama City for a short holiday, our private tour guide took us to Casablanca one night for dinner. What a excellent choice! Given the choice of outside or inside, we chose outside dining as it was a beautiful night. The service was as excellent as the food. One of our party had huge prawns placed on... More

We went to Casco Viejo with the family and the experience was amazing. It's not loud, you can talk and drink in a tranquil and exquisite environment. The food was hot, and very well served. Calamaris, passion fruit sangria, Chicharrón with arepas, hamburgers and patacones with chicken. Wow. Amazing price. Our server was a guy with dark skin and bright... More

Restaurant is in nice old town surroundings. Serves exellent Sangria and had fried squids which were OK. In main course chicken dices with chimmichuri sauce was very nice. Liked the overall ambience of music and people around us.
