Very Strange Mexican restaurant. Only reason I would go there is for the guayaba pie!!! Otherwise save your $$
I would say it is an American cafeteria style restaurant....
I will say it was clean. But the food not so good .

We first walked through a Panama restaurant at the market area in downtown Maz. and we saw all the pastries and menu and we knew we would return sometime during our stay for a meal. Little did we know that a second Panama was close to the Golden Zone and hotels. Because of this we ate a lunch and a breakfast at this Panama. Both were excellent meals. The food was great and the place was packed with locals....always a good sign. We would eat here again in a heartbeat. The only drawback is the servers had a little trouble understanding English. But patience and English on the menu allowed us to place our requests. I would recommend Panama to everyone.

I've been to Mazatlan twice and on each trip I've eaten at a Panama restaurant, for a total of four meals. It's a chain restaurant that in the U.S. would be categorized as "fast casual" -- not the same as "fast food", however. It is very popular with locals and tourists alike. Menu is predominantly Mexican with a few items, such as hamburgers, thrown in to appeal to we Nortes. Everything you read in the subsequent reviews I find to be true, except the slow service. We found it to be comparable to any similar restaurant in the U.S. It is helpful, however, to be a little conversant in Spanish because the majority of the wait staff do not speak English. But there are sample meals displayed at the entrance, similar to those seen in Japanese restaurants, that can help you decipher the various dishes. Recommend the chilaquiles and the tamarind smoothie, and of course any dessert. Not only is the Panama a restaurant but it is a pasteleria tambien -- a bakery too. You won't be disappointed.
