This is a good choice for lunch or dinner while in Panama. They have various types of seafood including fish and never disappoints. Would recommend if in the area.

Huge restaurant with tables inside & outside to dine. I Had the whole fried snapper & the mixed ceviche with flan for dessert. Wonderful. The waiters are quick to serve you. I am glad the water is safe to drink in Panama city & the salads are also safe to eat. I will return to Jimmy's on my next trip.... More

Average fare. Nothing to write home about. The seafood is what should be ordered. Service is attentive, but nobody speaks English. Prices are reasonable for some of the menu items, the rest is overpriced. Off street parking available. Very close to Atlapa convention center.

This used to be a great restaurant, with great food. Lately they raised their prices and the quality has diminished. Hopefully they will notice and go back to what they where. A great restauran with great food, excellent service and good prices

I ordered the pasta with shrimp and thought I would get mid size shrimp. I got the smallest shrimp they could find and the pasta needed some flavor. Maybe I should have tried the meat dishes or whole fish options.

This was one of the best eats that I had during my week long stay in Panama. The fried fish was delicious and plentiful. Would highly recommend eating here while in Panama.

Jimmy's Grill is famous, so the food should be better, especially for the price. The salad was fine, but the shrimp in garlic was just so-so. And it ended up being about 50 bucks. The traffic noise is intrusive if you eat outside of the air conditioned room. But rthe flan was the best I've ever eaten, anywhere. So on... More
