Wir waren mit dem Essen sehr zufrieden, besser gesagt war das Essen ausgezeichnet. Ein Kritikpunkt von unsererseite ist, dass wir bestimmt 10 Servciekräfte für unseren Tisch mit 2 Pax hatten. Keiner wusste wirklich Bescheid..... schade, denn das Panama ist ein richtig cooles Restaurant

Die Portionen sind winzig. Ich habe für 3 Pilze 10 Euro bezahlt. Saiblinge. Es war sehr lecker aber man wird auf keinen Fall satt. Personal ist nett. Die Location ist schön und die Cocktails excellent.

Tolles Ambiente, dass war es aber auf schon...Die Speisen sind klein und geschmacklich langweilig, dass Personal gequält und ein Lächeln zu erhalten war schwer. Zudem sprach ein Teil der Belegschaft schlechtes deutsch. International hin o. her, wir sind in Berlin! Mein Aperol war alles, aber nicht lecker....sehr enttäuschend. Es gibt wesentlich bessere Restaurants in Berlin, wo Preis- Leistung im Verhältnis steht.

Me and my brother went here for a dinner during our trip to Berlin. We were presently surprised by the flavours in all dishes, especially the beef tartare. We highly recommend going here if you have the chance!

Tolles Essen. Kreative Kombis. Coole Bedienungen. Gute Mischung bei den Gästen von chic bis schock. Die Geräuschkulisse ist aufgrund des internationalen Publikums bisweilen etwas anstrengend. Wer einen leisen Genussabend erwartet sollte das wissen.

Sehr schöne Atmosphäre im Sommer draußen, sehr netter Service, gute Beratung zu Gerichten und Weinen. Hohe Preise für die kleinen Portionen. Die Reservierungspolitik – keine Tischbestellung möglich zwischen 19 und 20:45 Uhr – ist eine Zumutung.

Good food in a beautifully designed restaurant with great staff. What I liked about this place was the upper class cuisine without the upper class snobbishness. The waiters and sommelier were really friendly and competent, the wine was excellent and the dishes were mostly great (with some exceptions). Above all the ceviche and the asparragus were marvelous - bravo. Cons were the fumes from the kitchen that entered the restaurant every once in a while (fire braised fish or lamb can be quite hard to bear for vegetarians) and the prices. While wine was excellent, an average of 9 EUR for 0.1l is simply too much in a neighbourhood with amazing less pricey wine bars all around. Moreover, the dishes were a bit overpriced for tapas style sharing plates.

Calculate 120€ for two person, smallest option, with wine.

My new favourite restaurant in Berlin! We were there for a business dinner and we all loved the tapas-like eating and sharing. We opted for the surprise menu and got a great variety of dishes that were creatively constructed and de-li-cious. The non-alc drinks were heavenly! Service was super friendly, attentive and professional, and the whole atmosphere made us feel relaxed and cosy. Couldn't have been happier - thanks a million!

Nettes Hofrestaurant mit ambitionierter internationaler Küche. Die Karte ist klein aber interessant und deckt alle Geschmacksrichtungen ab. Die Weinkarte ist umfangreich, die Kalkulation aber etwas zu hoch. Der Service ist vom Empfang bis zur Bedienung sehr gut und freundlich. Einziger Kritikpunkt, der Wein wurde nur nach Aufforderung, teilweise mehrfach nachgeschänkt. Wenn man die Weine separat aufbewahrt, muss man auch die Gläser im Auge haben. Alles in allem aber ein schöner Abend.

Very too noisy we could not hear eachother i don't understand why they did not think about it upfront while designing the place. The food is very tasty but this was ruined by the noise.

Lovely location in a back courtyard easily missed when walking by! Had a nice drink at the Tiger-Bar right in front of the restaurant and then transitioned - Recommend 3 (at most 4) courses per person - and if you are up for it have Nick the Sommelier (from San Francisco!) put together a wine-pairing for you which will have you discover wines from the Old World (particularly non-French German,Austrian and Eastern Europe with grape varietals that global warming is now letting them plant and exploit!) you would never have expected at utterly reasonable prices.
Fabulous sharing tapas style dishes of German descent but prepared by chef (Sophie?) with a supporting cast of close to 10 in a VERY interesting and modern way - she runs the kitchen with total control and \every dish is beautifully plated and presented. My date selected 3 dishes and I picked 4 - all were sharing-style (you have to be OK with that) and all spanned from vegetarian through pescaterian to carnivore with delectable local ingredients (Beelitz spargel-time in Berlin - BEST I have ever tasted).. VERY delicious!
Bill was reasonable but not over-the-top and well in line with the quality of food and experience you were getting!

Positiv, offene Atmosphäre, ohne Chici-Miki, freundliche Begrüssen
Negativ, wenn genus Menschen da sind, dann ist die Musik zu lat, alle wollen dann auch lauter reden,
Neutral - wir wollen noch wissen, wie wir am Fensters sitzen können und möchten auch über Menu informierten - also wollen wieder wieder kommen, Zeit bis 19.6.

Kreatives, leichtes und modern angehauchtes Essen von einem augenscheinlich recht jungen, aber nicht desto trotz professionellen und sehr sympathischen Team in angenehmem Ambiente; tolle, wenn auch in oberen preislichen Regionen angesiedelte Weinkarte; deshalb haben wir schon zum zweiten Mal einen schönen Abend im Panama verbracht, der auch den Teens gefiel ...

Recommended by a friend of mine who lives in Berlin to visit for dinner whilst in the city. It was just outstanding. The food was delicious, every mouthful was a delight. The wine was crisp and tasty as well. The service was flawless, we were made to feel very welcome and relax into the evening whilst the staff were also very knowledgable about the food and wine. We were recommended that we have 3-4 dishes per person, but as we didn't want to spend too much we had 4 dishes between 2 and it was enough. We weren't going for quantity, and the quality was second to none. it isn't cheap but 4 dishes between 2 and a bottle of wine came out at €40 a head and for that level of food, service and ambience, I'd go back time and time again.

We were the four of us and went though the hole menue though all courses have tapas sizes. We all enjoyed each of them, wonderful taste combination, very creative! A big thanks to chef, kitchen and service, all perfect and as soon as the menue will change we’ll be back rather earlier than later.
Only thing is a the loudness when the restaurant got more busy but though we had a table in the corner we had less of an issue with it.

The restaurant offers unique combinations of flavours on their menu, which are delicious and satisfying. The selection of wines is also good. I have to give props to the amazing service staff; they make customers comfortable and their friendliness tops off a memorable culinary experience. I would definitely go back.

As a special treat for myself and my partner we followed a recommendation of a friend. On arrival we were placed outside as it was a beautiful evening. However the chairs were rather uncomfortable; simple biergarten-foldingchairs without any padding.
The staff was very attentive, but snacks, crackers and bread-slices were not replaced throughout our stay. I have a lactose- and my partner a gluten-allergy. Instead of replacing parts of the meal, the ingredients were simply left out.
For the reputation of the restaurant: The price-tag is rather high compared to the quantity of food being served. Don't go there if you are hungry, unless you have a thick wallet.
The taste was fine, however my partner found it difficult to eat his sturgeon out of a musli-seized-bowl.
Side-dishes were practically non-existent, which was another downfall.
All-in-all the rather small if not mean portions don't justify the very high price-tag. Hundred twenty euros later with a half empty stomach we enjoyed our own desert later at home and decide never to go back.
