The ambience is quite nice and relaxed, the place is quite small so it caters for a small number of guests, which is nice because it doesn't come off as overly busy and loud. The food was good, and fresh, the only thing that was a bit disappointing was that after spending $115 we left still a bit hungry. We... More

Really sad to see this place decline so much, it used to be awesome all around and never failed to deliver great friendly service and great food. The last few times I've gone been met with outright rude or flippant staff who clearly don't want to be there and just look ill and hungover, I have also been really disappointed... More

Delicious brunch cocktails, awesome service and tasty Central American inspired food. Honestly, the best tortillas I have ever eaten. I can't rate this place enough.

Why would a dish of guacamole be so overloaded with salt to be nearly inedible? The same saltiness also turned up in the plate of fajitas spoiling what could have been a reasonable meal. The corn chips were good but that is a minor part of the ordered meal. The guys behind the bar seemed more attentive to the music... More

We stopped by on an incredibly hot day and this was the PERFECT lunch. We ordered the prawn salad, the roasted vegetable salad, and the veggie burger. There were no crumbs left on the plates. They also have a good selection of beer - some local and some mexican. I wish I could return another day for dinner!

Fresh and relaxed 😎 lunch in the packed and popular Panama House. Chicken and beef fajitas, a prawn salad with green tea soba and guacamole with multi-coloured corn chips. All delicious options....and hip and happening tunes to match! Fun!

Everything here was absolutely amazing. Delicious cocktails and the most friendly and helpful staff. Scallops were incredible, perfect chocolate fondant but make sure you save room for the chili chocolate fudge!
