Lebanese food is highly recommended, kibes, falafels, pita bread with hummus and even the broiled chicken. You can order other international plates too! If you seat outside you will find almost everyone smoking the Arguile o Hookah, but inside is nice and quite. Beer selection if awesome. New varieties of Brazilian, american and local micro breweries beers.

We made an unplanned stop here for dinner one night and had a great experience. The food was fresh and well-prepared. We got the falafel wrap and patatas/spicy French fries. Our server John was very hospitable and took good care of us. Highly recommend this place!

On the first evening we went there for couple of beers and smoking a hookah. The service was really good and we had a good evening there, so we decided to go back for food on the next day. The food was good but the service was terrible the guy with the mustache who served our table rather walked around... More

we went there this weekend. We tasted a sampler of several appetizers and meats. The food was great. Beer was very cold. Location is good and we found parking next to the street.

We found that place on accident and did not regret it! Ordered mezza for two which included 5 appetizers and meat kebabs! Plenty of food for two people for $39! Apple hookah is not to be missed! Very good! Service was great! Very much enjoyed food and ourselves!

Excellent food & service. Close to several major hotels just off Balboa. Walked over from the Hilton looking for something casual, so glad I stopped. The staff was welcoming, the menu is a bit overwhelming with choices so I got the sampler with kabob, everything was yummy and their pita is so fresh and light. Give them a try!

If you have a chance to check out this lovely Lebanese restaurant in Panama City, go for it. The food was delicious, service was great and atmosphere really nice. We started with the babaganoush which was smoky and delicious along with the freshest pita going. Shish Taouk was exceptional. They also have hookah if you are into that sort of... More

We initially ate at this restaurant because it was close, a short walk in safe neighborhood, to our hotel, the Le Meridien, We returned twice because of the food. We liked the setting with outside seating, something all too rare in Panama City. Yes, it was on a busy street, but we still enjoyed the fresh air. The service is... More

If you like Mediterranean food this place has great value and delicious food.... Grab a mezza combo and a couple of other dishes to your tastes and enjoy the patio and warm weather. the servers were attentive and spoke several languages. So we weren't struggling to communicate. Lots of variety for vegetarians as well

Thank Marc P
