Eastern saturday night dinner, many restaurants were closed, Friday's was open, not full either. Since our last visit, some prices went up, other remained the same, none went down. Drinks' don't taste the same, don't know why, it's not so hard to make a Margarita. Pasta and burgers were fine, just like we remembered. We were having dinner and all... More

I took my wife here for Valentine's day. The greeter was right there with a big smile and willingness to guide us into a pleasant experience. We sat at the bar looked around and were cheered by the festive, yet not loud environment. The service at the bar was even better than the greeter gave. And the greeter was excellent.... More

The restaurant seemed tired. The service was decent considering that we spoke no Spanish and the staff spoke poco ingles ! We had a Southwestern salad and a blackened chicken Alfredo on fettuccine. The chicken in the pasta was not spicy enough for Southwestern and the chicken in the pasta was very dry.

We sat with 6 adults and three babies on the terace. In side was far to noisy ( loud music ) . Outside was reasonably . Service was friendly and helpfull. The food was better than expected. Meat on the hamburgers was tasty and prices to Panama standards reasonably. If you are in the neighbourhood a good choice for a... More

If your from the U.S. and you're looking for american food, this is the place to go. The food is good and the atmosphere friendly. More fun for kids. Service was friendly, but not the fastest.

It's not bad but not as nice as the Friday's in the US... But if you are running out of places to eat or or sick of the high prices at your hotel I would recommend it... I was at the Hard Rock Hotel and it was only about an 8 minute walk away...

Food was good here and reasonably priced. Service was a bit slow, even though it was not that busy when we visited.

If you are familiar with TGIFridays then it is the same here as in the USA. Service was a little slow (but then this is Panama) but the food was very good. It is exactly what I expected as that is the purpose of "chain" restaurants. The quality and quantity of food is always the same at each and every... More

You get what you expect, you like it or not...There is nothing special about this place, but it is a safe choice. Take an extra sweater, as it feels like sitting in a refrigerator!
