While staying at the hotel Milan right across the street, my wife and I stumbled across Jolas since we were in the mood for a drink and a cigar. All the other surrounding establishments were packed and found it odd that Jolas wasn't. It is a good place with great ambiance with an awesome patio nicely separated by patio tents... More

We stumbled on this place on our way back to the hotel after dinner down the street. The staff is amazing -- each one a gem -- and an after dinner cigar outside on the rear deck with a drink was a perfect end to the evening. I with all good things for this venue -- it is a one-of-a-kind... More

Our group ended up eating here twice during our stay in Panama City. Don't judge a book by it's cover OR name in this case. This is much more than a coffee or cigar bar. The food is excellent. Staff is great and most speak English very well. The back deck area and cabanas are amazing and create a great... More

One of the few places where you can enjoy some food, a great coffee, and a good cigar all in one spot. Kudos to the owners. I was there in the afternoon and William was very attentive and helpful!

Fantastic atmosphere, very friendly service, and a great location right in the middle of El Cangrejo. The clams are to die for...they make them in a rich tomato sauce with some grated hard white Italian cheese and OMG so good. I had a steak, the wife had risotto and we werent disappointed. Sweet waitress, awesome set up, great place. Highly... More

Four of us were there for lunch. When we walked in and looked around we were very impressed. Outside tables in front, well decorated inside space, and a large deck out back with 4 or 5 tents with comfortable seats and low tables. However, there was no one in sight. While we were standing in the deck an young man... More

We were staying at El Milan in El Cangrejo and had heard good things about this place. We were ushered to the back yard with the little cabanas set up on the terraza. We sat on a ouch, they turned on the TV and fan (airconditioner??) and brought trays for our food. The server was really excited about this "bringing... More

This is a coffee house that also is a cigar bar that has cool cabanas surrounded by ponds and landscaped greenery. We also had delicious sangria while enjoying a great cigar followed by a truly delicious Panamanian coffee. A spectacular warm night with cool breezes and a young server who was so much fun made this a great night to... More
