Finding a good steak, while travelling in many parts of the world, can be difficult. This restaurant lives up to its’ many great reviews. While my friends enjoyed tender, delicious steaks, I had my first Wagyu burger. Wonderful! Great service and price, as well as....Worth checking out.More

I want to express my appreciation for Beef Restaurant in David, Panama. We recently visited with my mother, drawn by their enticing lunch menu, which offers eight choices, each priced at only $7.99. Following our meal, we took home some leftovers, including a couple of...pieces of brochette and salad. To our surprise, when we opened the leftovers for dinner, we discovered they had added a fresh steak to the salad. This kind gesture, especially towards an elderly customer, highlights the wonderful hospitality we've experienced in Panama.More

Best deals for lunch specials, $7.99. Dinners are excellent without being really expensive. Good meat which is rare in Panama. Have been there many times in the last few years.

Good steak and a friendly staff. I ordered a ribeye, and it was seasoned well and good beef. Beef is not always good in Panama,

Went for lunch with friends. This is a beef specialty restaurant. Ordered the beef skewers with fries. Beef was a little overcooked and was a bit tough. Fries were served cold. The restaurant wasn't overly busy but didn't get much attention from wait staff other...than initial order.More

My wife and I had dinner here yesterday and were not sorry. Don't listen to any of the bad reviews here as the food is top notch at a great price. My palate may not be the most refined, but I have had a lot...of steak at some great restaurants around the world and this place is great. Yes, it's more expensive than most restaurants you will find in Panama (especially in David) but you're getting imported meat that is seasoned and cooked superbly. I had the Argentinian ribeye, my favorite cut, and the mashed potatoes. My wife had the burger and fries. We will definitely be coming back next time we're in David.More

By far the best steak I've had anywhere and I've had steak all around U.S.A. and Europe! Service was amazing! Don't be afraid to speak English the waiter speaks English and is very attentive. As they took your order and gave you your drinks..he would...patiently wait in view and be ready if you had anymore needs. Prices we expected, espeically with where they import the meat, mostly from U.S.A. the food was cook to perfection..each order for the dinner was either well-done to medium well. The restuarant was well kept and very clean. For 6 ppl plus sides and 6 beers and speciality drinks..less than 130 not including tip.More

While we were hoping to have a good steak (difficult to find in Panama), we found the prices of the imported steaks to be way out of our budget range ($25 and up). So, we ended up ordering burgers that were dressed with American cheese,...mushrooms, grilled onions, and bacon. At $13, they were priced high also, but they were good. Boiled and seasoned new potatoes were one of the offered sides, along with french fries, mashed potatoes, and a couple of other items. Service was very good.More

This a a pretty good place to grab a steak. We went in and ordered "grilled" mushrooms, which turned out to be canned and sauteed. Sweetbreads were lightly breaded and pan-fried as well, no grilled, which made them almost lethally greasy. Por chops in wine...reduction, check. We ordered entraña, which was being delivered at the moment. Unfortunately, we neglected to ask whether they were frozen, which they were. So they flash-defrosted the steaks and "grilled" them up for us. Luckily, this cut of beef is so noble it stands up well to such mistreatment. The burger was nice, with a red-dyed bun which was fresh and flavorful. And they did have a very nice bottle of a hearty, oakey Argie red, at $30, perfect for the beef. too many TV screens for a restaurant (zero being the right number), but we found a niche table for six and escaped that somewhat. About $160+ for a party of four.More
