This is on the "P" level of the Hilton Panama (for "piscina"). There is both indoor seating as well as outdoor seating by the hotel swimming pool. As guests of the Hilton Panama we ate here several times. One of those times was right after...we climbed out of the pool. The salads here are especially good. The portion sizes are huge: our salads were so big and heavy that some of the waitresses had trouble carrying them to our table. The prices aren't outrageous either, especially for a hotel restaurant. Given the generous portion sizes, this is one of the best values for money I have ever seen at a hotel restaurant. We were big enough fans of Saquella that if we ever go back to Panama City, we would consider going here for lunch even if we were staying in a different hotel.More

The food was great, but the service was very lack lustre. Food came in decent time, but man, drinks were slow, and a lot of the time they were wrong, and occasionally just never came.

Very good cuisine and great service. A welcome shaded area by the pool (with indoor A.C. for those who prefer a cool place to eat)

The restaurant is located inside Hilton Hotel on the P floor, by the swimming pool. The restaurant is very nice decorated. Service is very attentive. Large menú. The food is amazing. I ate the best pasta a la arabiata in my life. The tuna tartar...on babaganush mash was amazing. The hoven pizzas are excellent. Also the desserts are fabulous. I recommend the three mouse chocolate cake. Prices are decent . Highly recommendMore

This is probably the best dining option at the Panama Hilton. They have a great selection of food, service that can't be equaled, and a view of Panama City and Casco Viejo that is quite impressive.

The restaurant is conveniently located, and clean hours are good. It’s right by the pool so the view is beautiful. However the service was slow and only got a cold pizza it was cold and the salad was soggy. When we complained we only got...10% off the bill. We ate there three nights in a row and then gave up.More

My family enjoyed eating here. I’m celiac and was able to eat without getting sick. My husband and daughter LOVED the thin crust pizza, the sushi, and the salad with shrimp (which came in a scampi sauce).

This is conveniently located if you’re staying at the Hilton. It’s right next to the pool but the service was really bad. We waited a while to get menus, food took a long time and was not great.

We ate lunch or dinner several times at Saquella during our stay at the Panama Hilton. The restaurant is located on the pool level of the hotel; there is an outdoor seating area that overlooks the pool. The menu is quite varied, ranging from soup...and salads to burgers, pasta, pizza and sushi! Literally, something for everyone. We were always seated promptly and service was attentive. We particularly enjoyed having dinner outdoors in the warm evening air with a great view of the skyline and the bay. I recommend Saquella for lunch or dinner.More

Food was tasty. There are two menus, at least, so be sure to check out the pizza one as well as the main food one. I had a salad full of chicken, ham, Gouda cheese, hard boiled egg and more. $14 wasn't cheap but you...are paying partially for the ambiance and flair of the restaurant. Service was great with many waitperson sand hostess always ready to help. My son had pasta, $11, and was pleased as well. National beers are $3 each.More

It's not my first time here. My experience was kind of horrible behind the long wait time, incorrect communication between the waitresses and the kitchen and not so good food. I would say be careful...
