Had a visit with my wife and mom. My mom ordered the "Angelo Steak", my wife the "Alfredo Pasta" and I took the "Grilled Octopus"... The first one 4/10 (too dry), the pasta is a 5/10 and the Octopus is a 4/10. Do not expect to be amazed by the restaurant, the personal is really distracted (they even take a... More

Had a quick lunch at what was recommended as a decent lunch place. The Greek salad was rather good. The lobster was over cooked, tough and rather tasteless. Service was unremarkable and the price higher than the food or service warranted. I'd give this one a skip people.

This is not a traditional restaurant but you can find some traditional dishes and lots of locals. Try the Sanconcho Soup and the Greek Chicken with some smashed potatoes.

Jimmy's is great Panamanian restaurant with a Greek flair. My steak was done to perfection. The Greek salad was a perfect Greek salad. The wine was very good. The service was excellent. This restaurant is not inexpensive but it is worth the price

My Panamanian friend loved his sancocho soup. I will say that prices have gone up and that's too bad as... More
