My table was ready, thanks.
When I order my meal, I was advised that there will be a 40 minute delay, due to other functions that night.
However, the meal arrived only 20 minutes later, of which I was really impressed !

thanks

We have been to Panama Jacks many times and our meals are always outstanding but what we always notice whenever we are there is how great the staff are. Every single one over all our visits have been helpful, friendly and cheerful. Thank you. The management must be doing something right.

The service was good.
The table I went to was organised and ready for me.

The staff admitted approx. 45 minute delay due to another function on site, of which I agreed. I really appreciate this information.
Even though the meal arrive 55 minutes later, it was OK, as I expected a delay.
thanks

From the moment our party of four was ushered to our lounge style table we were most impressed by the relaxed ambience of Panama Jacks restaurant . Table service was prompt and courteous . Our meals arrived after a very short wait and the food ( we all chose fish & salad ) was beautifully presented and tasted great .

A most pleasant experience. We will be back .

Atmosphere and service were good. Menu choice was quite extensive though meal presentation was a little plain. Received incorrect order but was rectified quickly.

Not only did we wait nearly an hour for our meal the batter on the fish was burnt as well as the chips were over cooked. The menu has reduced in selections

It started off badly when I arrived at exactly 11:45 for an 11:45 booking. In the rush I forgot to put my face mask on (I had one in my pocket so easily and quickly rectified). I'm incredibly old so I do tend to make unintended errors. Other than that things went well.

Food was disappointing -
I ordered the sirloin steak off the monthly menu cooked medium and it arrived red in colour - barely cooked.
The meat was full of fat and way too tender to eat.

However, staff asked why I did not eat it and confirmed the steak itself did not look good at all, so the manager kindly gave me a voucher / gift card of the same price as the steak for my next meal at Panama Jacks.

Last visit I ordered rump which was tough and over cooked so this visit I ordered Chicken Parm Napoli however sauce was thick and appeared to be pure tomato paste. Staff serving meal very pleasant and efficient. Bar staff average had to correct glass size and explain simple drink , then received full nip not half. Coffee service as per previous visit slow would I recommend maybe I have eaten better
