We have visited two times and both times the food was very good. The black eyed pea and pork rib stew is great as well is the curried chicken and also had the combo sandwich which was loaded with meat and cheese and fresh veggies. The service is a little slow but when you are having a cold beverage while watching the boats go by who cares.

We wanted to go to a cafe by the water and so we went here. It was nice sitting outside on the deck but that's it. The service was terrible and the ice coffee were just cold water with coffee powder that tasted so bad. We even had a struggle with the payment because they didn't know what we had ordered. And the staff just passed along the payment issue and finally we were forced to tell them what we had ordered. So frustrating and bad bad service. We wouldn't go there again so we do not recommend this place. Choose another one!

They had a great breakfast, and we went back for the lunch later. We wanted to try the Peanut butter chicken. We were so glad we did. It was amazing.

The peer is a little shaky but safe. They were not fast, to bring a check. But I have never had a bill come in central america before I asked for it. I am an american and I did not experience anything but kindness and great food. So I don't know what happened before.

Would go back, and recommend.

The food was good but the way we were treated was was less than okay. There is a price for the Panamanians (which is much less) and a higher price for every one else. Please look into this. Prepare to be treated a less than equal if you are an American and also be prepared to wait.

Tropical Suites nearby offers a free breakfast at Lilly's. The breakfast was a regular, decent portion of fruits, coffee, entre and juice.
Except one afro-lady at the bar who was so rude she, destroyed my appetite. She would REFUSE to take my order or answer questions. She forced coffee on us (despite tea being on the menu) and would not answer any questions we may have about the food. All she wanted for us is to tell the name of the entree we wanted.
However the other hispanic server was very nice, helpful and made up for the other lady.
