This was an overpriced, tourist trap. The food was okay, but not worth the price. We felt ripped off. I, particularly, was really looking forward to this restaurant and would never choose to go back.

The buffet is very limited and there is little else to do after you've taken pictures of the canal. Would not return unless I want to see the canal again.

The food is not so good as the view but totally worth it, preferably make the reservation for the terrace

A don't miss attraction. A great testimonial to a fantastic feat by man. Very professional exhibits. Some interactive. Best is standing on a simulated bridge of a ship and traversing the canal. Fantastic. Good restaurant with good viewing of canal activity.

Beware of tricky cab drivers on return to town. Confirm your fee before getting into cab. At destination, you might be surprised or shocked at the fare. (This is always good advice. Cabs do not have meters.)

After a wonderful and educating two hours in the museum, we went to the restaurant and scored a great table on rail of the balcony overlooking the locks. Had the food been lousy, it would have been well worth the price. But the food was really very good. It was buffet style but some menu choices. We chose the buffet. A nice salad bar with hearts of palm, several green salads and the usual toppings. A large assortment of cheeses, fruits, and cold meats on an antipasto bar. Good shrimp/seafood soup. Huge assortments of chafing dish style fish and meats. Really good au gratin potatoes and another hot dish of artichoke hearts in a creamy sauce. Huge selection of desserts from cheesecakes to pies and puddings.

Service was excellent. Crowd was tourists visiting the visitor center -- DUH, nice group of happy people oohing and ahhing as huge ships passed just meters in front of us.

This could be an attraction review also. Do not miss these exhibits. It is a testimonial to a fantastic feat. The food is an additional pleasure.
