We found this place when we were looking for property in Panama, it's open 24/7and when we couldn't sleep (often at 2'o'clock in the morning) we would make a bee line for the Benidorm. Comfort food is the order of the day here and everything is cooked really well and always to the same standard. I got hooked on the fried chicken with garlic and chips, not your gourmet food but deeply satisfying and TASTY. The service was always good and hot, the food arrived quickly and the menu was quite extensive.ll in all, excellent value for money.
If you are a people watcher then this is an interesting place to sit anytime, day or night. Mostly Panamanian but a good cross section of people.

I go here all the time, but sunday Sept. 22 the counter waitress padded my bill with extras... when challenged she took them off without trying to blame someone else... A clear attempted rip-off. this happens all the time in Calle Urugay, but I have never seen it in Benidorm. Its sad that I am a regular here, and always leave a good tip.... But, I cannot reward thieves. check your bill and count your change here folks....
On the up side, the food is pretty good and its open 24/7

Breakfast was delicious here.
This is a very simple restaurant that is inexpensive with great food.
The toast was delicious, eggs cooked perfectly to order and the coffee was heavenly.
The juices were definitely not fresh and not worth drinking but the great service, food and price still made this an excellent breakfast choice

The Benidorm was just around the corner from my hotel, and I ended up eating breakfast and dinner there every day.
The food is good, the service friendly and the prices very inexpensive.

The local chicken soup is actually more of a stew, and is a filling meal in and of itself.

The murals on the walls depict many facets of Panama, mostly of the indigenous people.

Beware of the tea with milk if like me, you drink your tea the English way, where the tea is made with boiling water, to which you add a splash of milk. Here, tea with milk is a cup of hot milk with a tea bag in it!! The staff had trouble understanding that I wanted both water AND milk.

The Benidorm is air conditioned and is open 24/7, it is also a place where the Tourist Police go to hang out or to take their breaks.
