Average food, nice atmosphere. Staff are friendly though slow moving. Hamburgers are good. Varied menu. Pricey, hamburgers are $10.

Going there will be easier with the new Atlantic bridge of the Panama Canal, but it is worth the effort. The Dock restaurant belongs to the Marina hotel, outside of Colon. We have been visiting the new Panama Canal locks of Agua Clara and the place is not far away. It is a former military area (Fort Sherman) and all... More

Was here with my family just last week, was greated by Mauricio who is also the bartender, wonderful person, great food, drinks and conversation. We all had the Panamanian Garlic Special with Sea Bass (Yumi) :) and I think the drink was the Ginger lemonade which was also very good.

Our Panama Railway and Fort San Lorenzo tour stopped here for lunch before heading back to Panama City. They have menus in both Spanish and English which makes ordering easy. The food was delicious, however, getting separate checks seemed to be challenging for the staff. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

Poor service and poor quality food. American breakfast consists of 2 cremated eggs, ham from s packet that received the same treatment as the eggs. Toast, they can do toast. Lunch, I didn't find out as it didn't arrive. I gave up after two hours despite reminding them twice.....

Friendly staff doing the best they can, but one does not know what the other is doing. The marina is a major hub for sailors. We had warned the marina six months in advance, but well it works nothing, neither shipyard or restaurant. The only one who seems to have the leadership ability is the lady in charge of the... More

Had a really nice afternoon sitting on the deck of the restaurant. Enjoyed a wonderful cup of coffee followed by a traditional bowl of soup and steaming hot chicken fajitas. Really enjoyed our visit. When you are visiting Colon it is worth the trip to see this Marina and Restaurant. It is a bit of a drive with the side... More

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants to take my visitors when they came to Panama and we went to the visitors center and San Lorenzo, but after today's visit, it will be painful to go back. The setting is very beautiful and you can sit and drool for hours over the yachts and super-yachts docked in Shelter... More

I hope you don't need anything else. Bad food, services and price. Stay away. Make sure you come with all you need inside your vessel.
