“Beirut in Playa Blanca is a jewel”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I am a Canadian expat that has lived in Panama for the last five years. My husband and I adore Beirut Playa Blanca. The service is fantastic. The quality of the food is superb. My favourite lunch is the falafel sandwich and for dinner their pizza is the best within a thirty mile drive. The menu is extensive and the owner, his wife and staff will go to any length to make sure that you have a fantastic dining experience. Dining in or take out the experience is the same.. I love that while you wait for your take out they will serve you ice water and then sweet tea when your order is ready to go. No extra charge for service with a smile.

“Bland”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The main Beruit Restaurant in The City is awesome - cave-like decor - great food, good people watching - this one is like eating in a mall food court = bland

“Ok but not fantastic”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

This restaurant is all glass and modern in its design and decor but I found it a bit cookie cutter and boring. The atmosphere was not very original or with an interesting ambience. The menu was failry extensive. We chose the "Kosher style" fish paella, although also included in this kosher section was a seafood paella! Although we are not kosher people, I don't like molluscs and scallops. The waiter demurred and pointed to the Spanish paella. We pointed back at the fish paella. The Greek salad was good. When the paella arrived, it was a seafood paella with some shrimp which was fine, but with lots of little things in shells which I passed over to my husband. He had a pretty good meal that night!

“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

We visited this restaurant on 2 occasions while in Farallon Panama this February. We enjoyed our meals both times. The chicken soup, greek salad, pizza, lamb, and hummas were all very good. The manager tries very hard to ensure good service. I agree with a recent review - the lights could be dimmed a bit. Otherwise, check it out - you won't be sorry!!!!

“Typical chain food with good service”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Went here twice with friends and neither time was all of our food great. 3/4 would have a good meal and the 4th was only so,so. Salads are excellent - especially the Greek. The Spanish rice with seafood was just ok but our friends had sea bass that was excellent. Service was good, the overhead lights could be dimmed a bit to make the ambiance a bit nicer. Decent place to eat in the area.
