Party of five, we spent 500€ included tips. After having paid we were told by waiter that the coffees we had had not been included in the bill and that we were due to pay. I suggested then when 5 people spend 500€ and you also have a good tip, you may want to reconsider the idea to offer coffee if you missed to add them to the bill. Other option was for the waiter to comment coffees have been offered. Customer care is not rocket science is basically common sense.

The food was just really bad, too much fried things and the Ceviche with Majonäse was just not right. Felt bad the whole night after dinner.

We really enjoyed our evening and the staff were great, very helpful and friendly but not over the top. After a lovely dinner - food very great generous portions and wonderful flavours we went over to the bar and our tab was supposed to follow us but it didn’t - good job we are honest!! Will go back if I’m in Berlin again

Gourmet cuisine at its finest. Ideally one has to order a try-out menu, but unfortunately, we've been six and not all of us were eager to do this. The food was intricate and delicious, the waiting times acceptable.

Der Geräuschpegel war unerträglich. Zur entbehrlichen Hintergrundmusik kommen sehr laute Gäste (und uns schien, für den Raum zu viele Plätze) und ein schallverstärkendes Ambiente. Wir haben aufgeatmet, als wir draußen waren. Schade - im Sommer saßen wir sehr angenehm in Hof, aber der Innenbereich ist nicht zu empfehlen.

Outstanding ambience and service with lovely good food. The noise level of the music could be a wee bit lower and they havent had a birthday cookie or cake for me, which isnt a problem but it would be pleasant if they have had it.

Ensenada cocktail was excellent, so were the meat empanadas and the churros with cardamom on a bed of black current sauce.

Being seated in the sink-in sofas left to entrance made for a mixed experience: While entirely uncomfortable and unfit for eating they provided the best place for watching and taking in the entire place (ground floor).
Service was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Not sure I like the living room atmosphere for fine dining. I find it distracting when the eye wanders from book shelves to lamp shades and back. Tastes are different, obviously.
Need to return for more food sampling and will check out first floor, too.

Das Essen war sehr gut. Leider wurde uns vorab nicht mitgeteilt, dass unsere Reservierung zeitlich begrenzt war. Während des Abends wurden wir wiederholt darauf hingewiesen, wann wir den Tisch räumen müssen. Dadurch war der Abend sehr gehetzt. Schade.

Das Essen und die Getränke waren wirklich ausgezeichnet. Wir fanden allerdings die Portionen sehr klein und sind trotz Vorspeisen und Dessert nicht richtig satt geworden, obwohl wir alle sehr schlank und „bewusste“ Esser sind. Besonders das vegetarische Hauptgericht war sehr wenig.
Der Service war freundlich aber etwas übermotiviert.

Kann man machen, muss man aber nicht. Das Essen ist okay, aber keine Überraschung. Bei dem preislichen Niveau erwartet man zurecht etwas mehr. Die Bedienung ist professionell. Warum es aber gefühlt sechs verschiedenen Kellner pro Tisch braucht, bleibt ein Rätsel.

Einmal reicht, es gibt deutlich spannendere Lokale in der Stadt.

Great place, with a unique design and atmosphere. Been here a couple of times already, and always exciting because the menu varies according to season. It is recommended to have at least two dishes per person, as size is not so big so it is great for date as you can share. Many vegetarian options, and good seasonal cocktails. The service is top notch, and staff is very good at recommendations. Extensive wine list. One of my favorites each time I go to Berlin.

Charming place with friendly staff. The decoration might be a bit overly trendy; the hyped chandelier for example struck me as somewhat cheap. The menu is limited and its categories are a tad precious, but the food is very solid, if not inventive. My pulled lamb shoulder arrived lukewarm, but was still rather delicious. Panama might not deserve all the accolades it raked in, but it is a fine dining choice all the same.

Wir waren seeehr zufrieden mit dem Essen und den Getränken sowie dem Service (Dennis, Danke). Super auch die Teller in der Mitte (war mit der Grund ins Panama zu gehen), so bringt das Essen noch mehr Freude und Vielfalt.
Einziges Manko: zu wenige vegetarische Essen.

Excellent food but ambiance should be refined a bit, it seems a bit too casual and without character.
Downstairs the room temperature is quite cold, my partner felt uncomfortable.
