“When you're ready for American food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Market is the place to go to get burgers, salads, friend chicken or other classic American food. The staff is fluent in English and the kitchen staff has obviously learned the language as well as the food and service were consistently good. Suitable for families and for couples, Market is a nice change of pace, particularly for a lighter meal

“It's my second time, it didn't get any better...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We are at Carnival time in Panama. We decided not to partcipate in the Panamenian Carnival this year, but went out to dine. My idea was to go to one of the few open restaurants in Panama, have some meat or hamburgers, my wife and daughters chose Market. I had visited Market previously and didn't particularly enjoy the experience, but they had changed their location, maybe the taste also changed. The service is good, the decoration very masculine with walls covered in wine bottles, the seating arragement is definetly upgrade cafeteria, the prices are not. Everybody in my party concluded that the meal (even though we all ate different dishes, all meat) was tasteless. I asked for a "california hamburger, well done" and got it "rare", the fries were very salty, the meat tasted raw and the bread crumbled in pieces as soon as I started eating, the restaurant had maybe ten clients. Only my 8 years old grandaughter was pleased with her mini bugers.
As I said this is my second visit, I feel it didn't get any better, I'll have to let other people enjoy this restaurant.

“New setting, old friend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was the first time I had visited Market since it had moved to its new location; the old building is now demolished. The new building is bigger than the old offering more covers and is about to be expanded further with the opening of a speciality delicatessen, offering imported fare from Europe.
The menu remains the same with reliable old favourites, typically good steaks and burgers, and their special hot artichoke and cheese dip. Served by efficient and friendly staff, same friendly management.
A relief to find all is well after the move.

“Recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Food is good, if you're craving American food, this is the place to go. Prices are reasonable, and they do have some more Panamanian type food if you want. Nice ambience, would definitely go back.

“Dinner and Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Dinner at Market was very good but brunch was even better! Not many restaurants in Panama offer brunch.
