We have eaten here several times and have enjoyed our meals. The Staff is lovely! The atmosphere is wonderful since the restaurant overlooks the marina and also just a short walk into the jungle. Enjoy! Cheers, JoAnne & Bill S/V ULTRA

We just finished visited San Lorenzo and this was the only restaurant around. It was busy so we figured this must be a great place to have lunch. What a disaster. The entire restaurant crew was huddled around the kitchen and no one paid any attention to us when we entered. We were finally seated and our order taken. Having... More

Management response:

Hi, I´m sorry that you didn´t receive the service that you expected. I spoke to your tour guide, because he call me 1 hour before to make a reservation of your group of 23 people, I explain to him that we have our restaurant full and the food will take some time because you will order from the regular menu...

Average food, nice atmosphere. Staff are friendly though slow moving. Hamburgers are good. Varied menu. Pricey, hamburgers are $10.

Going there will be easier with the new Atlantic bridge of the Panama Canal, but it is worth the effort. The Dock restaurant belongs to the Marina hotel, outside of Colon. We have been visiting the new Panama Canal locks of Agua Clara and the place is not far away. It is a former military area (Fort Sherman) and all... More

Was here with my family just last week, was greated by Mauricio who is also the bartender, wonderful person, great food, drinks and conversation. We all had the Panamanian Garlic Special with Sea Bass (Yumi) :) and I think the drink was the Ginger lemonade which was also very good.

Our Panama Railway and Fort San Lorenzo tour stopped here for lunch before heading back to Panama City. They have menus in both Spanish and English which makes ordering easy. The food was delicious, however, getting separate checks seemed to be challenging for the staff. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

Poor service and poor quality food. American breakfast consists of 2 cremated eggs, ham from s packet that received the same treatment as the eggs. Toast, they can do toast. Lunch, I didn't find out as it didn't arrive. I gave up after two hours despite reminding them twice.....

Friendly staff doing the best they can, but one does not know what the other is doing. The marina is a major hub for sailors. We had warned the marina six months in advance, but well it works nothing, neither shipyard or restaurant. The only one who seems to have the leadership ability is the lady in charge of the... More
