Meze cravings while in Panama City? This is the place to go! Don't be turned off by the wings specials or pizzas on the menu; the meze are definitely worth it and the service is excellent.

We just wanted a small afternoon snack close to our hotel and ended up here, ordering the meatless meze selection for 2. Included in this were sigara boregi and kibbeh with two dipping sauces, tabbouleh, hummus, baba ghanoush and labne. Servings were generous and we ended up eating more than we'd planned because everything was so tasty.

The pita bread - warm and perfectly chewy - and the tabbouleh - fresh and with a perfectly balanced citrus tang - were particularly lovely.

Service was kind, swift and impeccable in every way - we felt very welcome.

The downsides - no individual spoons for dishes, sickly sweet mixer-based margaritas.

Lebanese food is highly recommended, kibes, falafels, pita bread with hummus and even the broiled chicken. You can order other international plates too!
If you seat outside you will find almost everyone smoking the Arguile o Hookah, but inside is nice and quite. Beer selection if awesome. New varieties of Brazilian, american and local micro breweries beers.

We made an unplanned stop here for dinner one night and had a great experience. The food was fresh and well-prepared. We got the falafel wrap and patatas/spicy French fries. Our server John was very hospitable and took good care of us. Highly recommend this place!

On the first evening we went there for couple of beers and smoking a hookah. The service was really good and we had a good evening there, so we decided to go back for food on the next day. The food was good but the service was terrible the guy with the mustache who served our table rather walked around ignoring us instead of earning money for his restaurant! We had to wait for 15 min. to order some drinks after the dinner then we ordered by another waiter who was not responsible for our table.

we went there this weekend. We tasted a sampler of several appetizers and meats. The food was great. Beer was very cold.
Location is good and we found parking next to the street.
