Very mixed quality on the "Trip to Panama." Rushed service, which made us feel rushed eating. Then got booted out. We came back after a walk to have another nice bottle, and there was space. Too bad.

Das Essen in Panama war mal wieder Weltklasse! Die Ceviche zur Vorspeise ist ein absolutes Muss! Der service sehr aufmerksam und freundlich. Immer wieder gerne hier zum Essen! Vielen Dank ans Panama Team ;)

Die Qualität des Essens war sehr gut. Der Service war freundlich und bemüht, allerdings nicht immer professionell.
Störend ist das „durchjagen“ durch die Gänge, wenn man 19 Ihr einen Tisch reserviert hat und 21 Uhr wieder raus muss, da der Tisch für die zweite Runde reserviert ist. Teilweise wurden die Gänge schon abgeräumt, während noch gegessen wurde. Das Timing war teilweise verbesserungswürdig. Bei einem Tischumsatz von 280€ fehlt mir daher die angemessene „Ruhe“!

Einfach ein toller Ort! Hier stimmt einfach das Gesamtpaket. Wir haben hervorragend gegessen. Die Portionen sind so, dass man satt wird. Der Service ist herzlich, zurückhaltend und absolut kompetent. Den Innenhof hätte man nicht schöner gestalten können. Die Preise sind durchaus vertretbar. Wir hatten einen rundum tollen Abend. Danke und wir kommen wieder!!

From the bartenders to the waiters, the service was incredible. And although the menu seemed small, all the appetizers and entrees were tasty & unique. Stand out dishes include the potatoes with their dipping sauces, the fried chicken, and the asparagus.

Einzig das Essen ist wirklich gut aber der Service ist einfach hektisch. Permanent wollte man abräumen. Permanent wurde man ,gestört‘ da hilft auch kein Lächeln.
Wahnsinn laut im Obergeschoss. Sehr eng gestellte Tische. Gemütlich essen ist hier
nicht möglich. Preise der Weine absolut überzogen. Hat kein Spaß gemacht.

I’ve been to Panama twice in the last two months and enjoyed it thoroughly both times. It has a terrific vibe. From the moment you enter in the rear of a hidden courtyard, you realize you’re in a lively, inviting space where you are going to have good drinks, food and service surrounded by like-minded diners. I have particular appreciation for the servers, who made the meal entertaining the both times I was there.

Leider fühlt man sich beim Essen etwas gehetzt und hat keine Zeit zwischen den Gängen das Essen sacken zu lassen. Die Kellner sind anfangs sehr freundlich und aufmerksam, aber beim Dessert wird man nicht mehr gefragt, ob man noch etwas trinken möchte. Espresso etc. und die Bedienung lässt sich je später der Abend auch nicht mehr blicken.

Abgesehen von dem qualitativ ohne Frage herausragenden Essen war der Rest mehr Schein als Sein:
- aufgeregtes Servicepersonal mit tlw unverständlichen Akzenten, dass sich kaum Zeit für Erklärungen nahm und wenn, dann sehr arrogant
- völlig überzogene Preise, selbst für eine Scheibe Baguette zum Tartar werden noch 3 Euro berechnet. Getränkepreise absolute Frechheit (Wein 0.1 6.50 Euro, Bier 0.3 6.90 Euro)
- Essen war am Tisch lauwarm, ärgerlich bei einem Steak für 35 Euro
- man muss zu jedem Gericht Beilagen extra bestellen, für Vegetarier keine Auswahl (1 Essen bzw 1 Vorspeise)
- lauter, eng gestellter Gastraum, während unten die Räume leer waren, erzeugt keinen Eindruck der Großzügigkeit

Gedamteindruck: Überteuerter Hipsterladen, der aus einem mir unbekannten Grund einen tollen Ruf hat, dem aber leider in keinster Weise gerecht wird.

Felt like you are part of a business plan that must serves you as fast as possible in order to get the next batch of customers...
Some of the dishes were desapointing and everything was too expensive for its value...
Regretfully, it is a fake trendy place to us.

In vacanza a Berlino con famiglia e amici è stata una piacevole esperienza, location caratteristica, personale efficiente e simpatico, attenzione al cliente, con noi c’era una ragazza celiaca ed hanno prestato molta attenzione ai suoi piatti dividendoli da quelli con il glutine. Cucina ricercata ed ottima, perfettamente in linea qualità prezzo.

Das Essen ist fantastisch, Das Service Personal sehr sympatisch und auf Zack. Jedoch hatte man leider das Gefühl, dass man schnell abgearbeitet werden möchte, damit man die 2 Stunden nicht überschreitet...diese Hektik und die Lautstärke waren sehr unangenehm. Ansonsten war es trotzdem ein schöner Abend.

Sehr geehrtes Panama-Team,
die Speisen sind nach dem Servieren nicht heiß genug und die Teller auf dem Tisch kommen nicht heiß auf den Tisch. Eigentlich ein NoGo für ein Restaurant in dieser Preisklasse. Außerdem finde ich die
Buchung „Zeitfenster“ nicht besonders kundenfreundlich.

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.

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.
