45 minutes waiting for our meal (only 3 adults and we ask the same plate, corvina), 35 minutes to get pasta for my 2 years old (it takes 5 minutes to cook it), bad service starting with the manager, and if you decide to go, please don't drink the Margaritas. what a bad experience.

It was our last evening and such a bad experience in this restaurant. The food was ok but overpriced. But the waiter was very very unfriendly and he never asked us for our drinks. So we just stayed with the water. That is no customer Service!

This is a huge restaurant that caters for groups of tourists. The location is lovely, the food is nothing special, but expensive.

The seafood dishes we tried,including calamari in cheese sause, paellla with mariscos (seafood), prawns ans sea bass (with garlic). The main dishes come with sides and we ordered the veggies - very tasty. The servers varied from charming the first night to aloof and... More

Expensive for Panama City but top notch quality. Had the land and sea sampling appetizers, snow crab fettuccine, AGM's chicken parmesean. All was great, service was fast enough, nice and safe location.

Great food and service! They have a very large menu with everything (seafood, beef, chicken, pastas) but they specialize in seafood. Some items have a Greek flair.
