Our group of 5 ate here. We are big fans of Middle Eastern food and eat lots of it back home.. We all found the food to be kind of "boring" and some of the dishes were over spiced which masked the essence of the main meals. The tabouli was too vinegary/acidic. Portion size was medium to small. We left... More

Nothing out of this world but it is OK. Service was good, the area is nice. It seems to me a littly costly for what it is, but if you are in the area, it's a good option for a simple night ouy

Although no luxury ambience, Perfect seasoning, size and variety... Favorites: hummus, salad and eggplant dip! Grilled chicken and lamb! Mint lemonade! Also variety for someone who's no Lebanese food fan: plantain ñoquis, pizzas etc!

Mouthwatering delicious. Greeted with pink lemonade served as soon as we sat down was a welcome treat on a hot and humid day during rainy season. I cannot... More

While staying in Playa Blanca beach and lagoon resort my family enjoyed the excellent food and service in the Berut restaurant. Everyone had to try each others dish as they where all amazingly tasteful! Best food served in Panama!!!

We went there twice within one week. The first time the appetizers (hummus, etc.) were outstanding, what you would expect in a Lebanese restaurant. However the main course was appalling. Overcooked, but still cold! So this time, with even more people at the table, I opted for a pizza, which was OK. Not much pepperoni on the pepperoni pizza though.... More

This was our favorite place in Panama City. Great place to sit and people watch. At night they have belly dancers and music. Just a fun place. The food was varied and very good. And the prices were surprisingly cheap. A must stop if you're in the city

If you want hands-down the best customer service in the entire country of Panama....come to this place! We visited several times, not only to eat, but drink and hookah. We had the same wait staff and I cannot say how attentive they are. I love this place and the people that work there. There are those who speak English, but... More

Great tabule, very well seasoned. We ordered take out for 7! Both hummus - the regular and the one with lamb - were good, as well as the other dishes. Service was great too. Folks were really friendly. My only pet peeve: the hummus does NOT come with pitta bread! How are you suppose to eat hummus then??? Plain?? And... More
