“Cheap and cheerful - excellent cafe con leche!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2010

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

“Convenient location, open 24/7”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2010

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.

“Fabulous Food en Panama City!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2010

I accidentally found this place when I was in Panama City. It is in the Hotel Acapulco and open 24 hours a day. It reminded me of an american style diner but had much more to offer. The menu was incredible, prices were low and it looked spotless. I ordered too much food because everything looked so good. I had sopa de marisco which was enormous and only $3.50! I also ordered a shrimp salad which could have fed four people! They have full bar service and I can only imagine how inexpensive that could be. I noted that a filet mignon dinner was only $7.50. I will bet that it was superb value for the money. I travel for a living and can honestly say that this is one of the best places that you will ever experience in your lifetime. It isn't fancy but if you are looking for REALLY GOOD FOOD for little money........go here. I cannot wait to go back! A real find. Eat your heart out...Anthony Bourdain!!!!!
