This was an ideal location to watch the ships go through the canals as well as get a good meal. However, it was very expensive. The buffet included a dessert bar. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and the service was good.

I was there for a business lunch this month. Great view of the canal, but constantly surrounded by tourists taking pictures. Cannot blame them the restaurant allows it. Thought the $42 plus tax per person was a. It high ($125 for two) Nice view, ok service, food was below average. But it was a buffet. Hope Dinner menu is nicer.

This restaurant was closed to the public without a notice posted on the property or their website. We were left without lunch and without a plan.

We had Sunday brunch and watched 3 boats cross the canal. The brunch is buffet for $48 and includes unlimited mimosas. It was worth it. Spectacular view. The food was delicious. A combination of national dishes and international favorites.

The buffet is $40. Definitely over priced. The only good benefit is being able to have drinks on the terrace while watching the locks. The service was with an attitude though, actually everyone at the center acted like it was a bother. Wouldn't recommend

One week ago, I took my wife and son to eat at the Miraflores restaurant. I wanted my son to see the canal, and for the family to eat at the same time. A good idea on paper only! At 42$ the buffet per adult and $18 per child, it was the poorest buffet you can find in Latam. Go... More

I give it 5 stars because I had a great time watching the ships go by in this pricey but good buffet. The lunch buffet costs more than 40 dollars plus drinks, but you can sit inside AC or outside in the terrace and spend a couple hours watching ships go by while having drinks and eating good Panamanian food....

Didn't have food, but the daiquiris were good and reasonable for this type of venue. The lunch buffet offered seemed pricey, and no one seemed to be eating, it was around lunch time. Nice folks to serve you.

This restaurant doesn't exist any more. It seems to be under new management and is at the time of writing (January 2017) known as "Atlantic & Pacific Co." restaurant. See those reviews for current information.

We ate dinner here on our last evening in the Canal Zone. The food was average but the experience overall was very good. We did not have reservations and although there were plenty of empty tables in the main dining area, we were restricted on where we could sit. Strangely, over the process of 2-3 hours, we were the only... More
