“Great seafood”

Mercado de Mariscos
Ranked #42 of 177 things to do in Panama City
Attraction details
Reviewed June 8, 2012

We only had a brief visit to the Mercado so didn't have time to try the restaurant but we did try the local ceviche - amazing. The lobster ceviche was just incredible and very reasonable at only $4. We wandered around the stalls for 10-15 minutes and everything looked very fresh - we could have tried it all!

A truely must see attraction in Panama. Next time we must try the restaurant.

You don't go here for the ambiance, you go here for the FOOD! The seafood is fresh, right off the boat, and incredibly tasty. Any local dish you ever wanted to try is available here-- broiled lobster, deep fried whole corvina (sea bass), and so many other tasty fish plates. It's on the second floor of the fish market, DO NOT miss it. All the locals eat here.

This place is located in Cinta Costera right by the entrance to Casco Viejo. It is a Public market where you can buy fresh from the boat seafood. The best thing about it is that the seafood is relatively affordable, AND you may ask the restaurant on the second floor to cook your purchases to however you like for a modest fee !!! the restaurant upstairs has good service, they cook your purchases very well, and you have a nice view of the bay and the skyline of Panama city from a distance !!!!!
