We've been coming here for almost 40 years, they moved some time ago but the quality didn't suffer one bit. They just don't serve you in your car anymore but who does? They are famous for their sandwiches and they are still absolutely phenomenal, we shared the Cuban on their "pan de la casa" and it was awesome. I had... More

This place is very good to have a quick lunch. They have special menu for lunch this is fast. The food is just ok. Also fruit shakes I recommend. They have a very large menu, but price seems Too expensive for The food quality They serve. Lunch or coffee.

Had a great cuban sandwich for a late lunch- I thought about it a couple days after! Good bang for your buck and was super full after a sandwich, beer, and fries. I would come here again!

Food portions were big and food was decent, however the service was not great. While it didn't take a long time to get your food after you placed an order it did take a long time to get a waiter to get your ordered placed. There is also NO WIFI which can be a turn off for travelers.

Boulevard Balboa is an institution in Panama City. It has been a popular restaurant for decades. It moved to a new modern location (a couple of blocks away from the original) approximately 7 years ago and has lost a little bit of the charm but added an open air terrace which added a nice touch specially at night. Go for... More

You can pick up a fruit snack at one of the many vendors , enjoy a drink at the fish restaurants or take a... More

Good food, good friendly service. Great view of the marina but very noisy to sit outside. Sit inside unless you don't want to talk. Everything was tasty and reasonably price. I would go again.
