#1 - Gringos: The wait staff here speaks no english and we had a very hard time ordering. Went there 3 times in a week.

Once we got the food, it was amazing. The breakfast menu is really big and they do have a menu in English. Lots of terrific Mexican breakfast foods we have never heard of and we tried a lot.

This place is very busy and for some reason, we were the only family of Gringos in here each time.

Highly recommend this place for breakfast and desert but just understand the waitresses speak ZERO English and so you must point and do your best to speak Spanish. I speak enough Spanish to get by and still had issues.

This is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. I enjoy the food. They have a great variety of dishes, portions are abundant, reasonable prices,and fast and attentive service. Desserts are also great, they have a great selection of cakes and pies. These restaurants have a great location and they have a nice atmosphere. Comfortable place for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
On my first trip to Mazatlan, I thought I was going to eat seafood only, but I ended up going to this place for three days in a row. You shouldn't miss this place in Mazatlan!

I love panama. Great selection of unique foods, and the drink selection is amazing, albeit non alcoholic. Make sure to choose the local dishes that you cant get anywhere else!

panama is on the bus route a short ride cheap ride from our hotel, the pueblo bonito. we always just about 'live' in the panama when we're there. especially, toward the end of our usual 5 week stay when money begins to run short.

panama reminds us a little of our u.s. dinners, although usually better and more attractive. service is great, although not much english is spoken, the servers try to find someone to help if they don't understand.

you can have 'a little something' or a large meal and then a pastry from the roaming pasty cart. all and everything is good.

we have never had a bad meal at panama. even the coffee is excellent.

we eat at other very good restaurants once in a while while we are in mazatlan, but we eat at panama once a day.

we like the look of the place, the feeling of warmth, the people are friendly and we especially like that this restaurant is frequented by the mexican people of mazatlan, not just tourists. this is evident because few of the servers actually speak any english. this does not stop them from being as friendly and helpful as they can be.

the menu runs the from eggs, and taco to full steak dinners and back and all good, tasty and cooked great.

s quick something to a full dinner, definitely try panama!!!
