During a trip to the Aqua Clara locks and Fort San Lorenzo I had lunch here. It is a nice place with a view on the harbour. Lunch was great and staff was kindly.

Ate lunch after driving along the Panama Canal. Was the only hamburger meal during the week. Had shrimp and calamari appetizers, Burger was much better, appetizers only marginal. calamari was over cooked and dry. great atmosphere and view of boats and water.

Just ate the 3rd meal at the restaurant in 2 days. Same menu for lunch and dinner. All food items ordered, chicken soup, ribs and baked chicken were very good. Only down side here is the long wait and forgetful staff.

This is the only game in the area. The food is good and the service needs improvement, but overall it is not bad. We enjoyed the meals although depending on the item the prices can be a bit above normal. We ate here two nights...More
