Description: Best place for casual dining in Panama City, Panama...located on the banks of the canal , always a great view, plenty of friendly expats and locals

Really pleasant sitting in the deck of the restaurant early evening watching the boats in the Panama Canal. Combine this with an overnight stay at Country Inn and Suites.

....but don't go if you are expecting an exceptional meal or service. We ate here several times due to proximity to our hotel and it is a great place to meet up with ex pats from the old Zone.

The corvina ceviche is great but nothing else I had was worth repeating in the food.

The service was slow and unresponsive...but good news...the drinks are cheap and delicious!!!!

The restaurant is much better than it appears when you approach from the outside. A great place for drinks while watching the ships in the canal. They serve good appetizers and meals that are well priced. Definitely check out happy hour and evening live music.

We were looking for a place near our hotel to watch NFL playoff games and this was recommended. It was hardly packed, but service was beyond lackluster and food was dreadful cerviche and a salad should not take the kitchen more than an hour to produce. Seriously awful.

We have eaten 6 different times here and had 1 decent meal. It's expensive, the food is just ok and the service could be better.
