I didn't stay at the hotel but enjoyed the restaurant twice on my visit. We had a very good buffet breakfast one morning and went for pizza another time. Good menu selection, good food, but slow service. I would go back though.

I would like to review the main (of 3) restaurant in the Gran Hotel National. This is the best restaurant that I found in David, Panama and very reasonably priced.
