MultiCafe is a cafeteria-style restaurant with 2 locations in downtown David. This review is of the larger of the 2 restaurants, the one located next door to the Castilla Hotel. But much of the review applies to both because they have the same cafeteria-style, fare and prices. The big draw of MultiCafe is that it's a relatively inexpensive place to... More

This is a great choice if you are looking for something quick and inexpensive. The menu is all in Spanish, but you basically just go down the buffet line and point to the things you want them to put on your plate. There were a lot of choices, but fairly limited vegetarian selection. The vegetable rice turned out to have... More

Despite what Irene writes my wife and I have visited this restauraunt around 300 to 350 time over the last 7 years and we have never been asked for money although beggars do sit outside the resteraunt. Despite the recent price increases, the place still offers good value for money and the service is still quick and cheerful

it is a good restaurant for a quick meal, since it's a buffet style restaurant, the problem is that a kid started asking money, then a woman also, and then another one. you can't eat in peace without someone asking for money. I feel sorry for them , and I gave them some money but it is quite uncomfortable.

We have always enjoyed their food but the last time I went into MultiCafe a man and a women tried to rob me. Just be careful as they were working together as a team. Thank God He gave me the sense to run when I did.

We went there because it was recommended on Trip Advisor. We got there about 6:30 PM. We didn't realize that it was a cafeteria. There was limited selection that didn't look dried up. There were lots of meat selections but with a mostly vegetarian group that wasn't even an option. No one came to explain or greet us so we... More

This was a yummy little spot for breakfast, but we had to ask directions to find it. The pin on the map for trip advisor is wrong. It is next to the hotel Castilla though as advertised. Clean dining area with AC, and easy to order food.. cafeteria style so just point at what you want. Fruit cup was way... More

Coffee lovers unite! Then visit this nice little coffee bar and enjoy a cup of Panama. Good folks make a good place to visit, and this place delivers! All I can say is give it a shot, or should I say drink a shot. I have expressed my humble opinion. Ahhhh. Smell the coffee
