The falafel, fried cauliflower, chicken, baba ghonoush were all wonderful. Decent service. We ate outside-it is fairly quiet. Can not comment on atmosphere inside.

My wife loves it here and we have had it twice. Both times were great in all aspects. Price is reasonable for the quality of the food.

Went for drinks and appetizers. The octopus in garlic and lemon was to die for and a very large portion that arrived with a side of yummy potatoes. Husband had calamari also very good. Excellent service the only prob was the buy one get one did not actually happen. We got 2 total and paid for 2.

We stopped for a beer and some cocktails before heading on to another restaurant for dinner. The mojito's were poor quality - very bitter and more like lemonade than the rum drink we ordered. They also tasted remarkably similar to the non alcoholic mojito that my young daughter ordered. Bad enough but the sting in the tail - they charged... More

We were in Panama City for a week and we ended up going to Habibi's twice... the food and drinks were that good! My wife absolutely loved the mojitos, which were 2 X 1, as were the Cuba Libres. The shawarma was perfectly cooked and the fries were great. Located right in the heart of Panama City on Calle Uruguay,... More

Meze cravings while in Panama City? This is the place to go! Don't be turned off by the wings specials or pizzas on the menu; the meze are definitely worth it and the service is excellent. We just wanted a small afternoon snack close to our hotel and ended up here, ordering the meatless meze selection for 2. Included in... More

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!
