Jimmy's has been a go to spot for me since 2002 when I first visited Panama. Everything on the menu is prepared to order and is exceptional. Try the Mellijones (Clams) with fresh pressed bread or the Fried Cheese and Eggplant as an appetizer - Amazing! For your main course feel free to try any of their Corvina (Fish) Specials or for a sure bet order any style of the Filet of Beef Tenderloin. This is not prepared like we do in the US - it is simply a cut of the tenderloin that is grilled to perfection. If you want the US version get the Club Filet. Wow! PS The Flan is awesome as well.

I've chosen this restaurant, because it looks nice from the outside and had quite a big menu.

Two of my plates contained one or more hairs. For a restaurant that's game, set and match.

My family and I have been coming to Jimmy's for quite a while. We usually all order the same thing: we have fried eggplants with tzatziki as an appetizer and then we usually have fried prawns, or fish or meat. The food is plenty. Most dishes come with a salad and your entree with fries or rice or potatoes.
The staff are very knowledgeable and are usually people that have been working there for years.

Over the past 10 years I have eaten there more than 20 times. It never knocked me out,but used to be a good value. They need to change the cooking oil. The patacones and zucchini were not up to par. The pulpo al carbon could have been fresher. I will most likely go back, but not a top choice.
