I ate at Market for my first night in Panama and it was quite delicious. It was a Tuesday evening so it was pretty quiet, however that did not take away from the food or service. Staff is very attentive but not over the top. The menu is very good in both English and Spanish and the food is delicious.... More

Great service, decor and wonderful Corvina (sea bass). This is my favorite restaurant to enjoy a great meal in Panama City.

Place was nicely decorated The menu is quite large and the prices are fare. Went there many times for business lunch and with family, they serve brunch on saturday and sundays. The meat was great, burgers and steaks.

The atmosphere was good. The waiter attentive and friendly. The place looked professional. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes the chicken almost dry. The fish was okay, the deserts were pretty good. We were two couples and had asked for separate bills before we started. They said okay then gave us one bill and refused to divide it. Spoiled...

Based on the great reviews we found on Trip Advisor, we decided to try Market Restaurant. We ate here on our second day in Panama City. It's a bit off the beaten path, so finding it was a little tricky, but we got to it eventually. We left Market very happy, and would certainly recommend giving it a try if... More

The restaurant is really nice, music a bit loud. We arrived at 8pm on Sunday,two of us, we asked for a bigger table and were told all were reserved. Guess what, not true or the three parties for the table for four never showed up. The food is always good. The artichoke and spinach dip perfectly baked and served. I... More

Found this gem near our hotel and have been twice now for their brunch!! The Bandeja Panamania is excellent - the best arepa I've had in forever... Highly recommended if you are in the Obarrio for a meal!!

My husband and I went here based on the recommendation of friends. Not a bad place, but nothing spectacular. The food was good, and reasonably priced for what you get. The Ceasar salad was one of the best we have had in the city. They have some good quality steaks, but those are pretty pricey. Waiter forgot our wine order,... More
