This is a buffet patronized by local workers. The food is local, copious and pretty good. The selection is vast. The price is very reasonable. If you want to be treated like a tourist and be waited on hand and foot, don't go there. If you want local falvour, try it out.

Went to Niko's only because our front desk person said the food was good and cheap. So on a night when we didn't have anything planned, we went and were pleasantly surprised! It's Panamanian cafeteria food, which a sandwich, sub, and pizza section, and a hot foods section with your entree and sides offerings. (It's a small scale Golden Corral.)

My son and I have dietary issues, and we were able to piece together a very good meal for dinner without issue. I had ropa vieja, shredded beef and peppers, with rice and salad, and the kids had burgers and fries. Our three meals with drinks and without dessert (they have a really nice selection of pastries and cakes, none of which are gluten or dairy free) cost less than $20. You seat yourself among the other patrons, hoping to find a seat together because it's pretty busy and packed!

It's a nice place to eat a set menu at a very decent price. No frills, delicious food.

Niko'S Cafe. I love the selections of this Panama food. So many choices at a good price. You have everything at one place. Seafood, Chicken, Beef, and Pastelito.

This restaurant offers a buffet, with a different kind of food, from salad, rice, to meat. But green salad can be improved. Meat is very good, especial pork. You ask for your food on the buffet and pay at the end of it. You pay what you choose.

I went to this place with my mom looking for an easy lunch without complications. This place offered limited choices however it provided the basic of a Panamanian meal, rice, beans, sweet plantains and your meat choice (fish, pork, etc). The place is clean and portions given were adequate.
