Wow Panama! Truly the best venue to hold our ceremony and wedding - not only is it the most beautiful setting, the team (led by Luke, Dan, and Amy) are a well oiled machine making sure we felt completely comfortable and confident the whole way through. Somehow they kept their cool despite us needing to postpone our wedding twice and they continued to keep us updated throughout changing COVID restrictions and ensured we all had the best (and safest) day possible. Guests are still talking about the venue, great service and incredible food so thank you to the Panama team for making our wedding day truly wonderful.

We held our wedding at Panama Dining room on one perfect covid free weekend in Melbourne, 2020. First and foremost, the event staff were amazing to deal with. Throughout the highs and lows of the pandemic, they consistently kept in touch and demonstrated strong communication skills. Nothing was too tricky when it came to requests and they were also happy to make decisions for us when we were stumped or didn’t know what to do. The event itself was absolutely gorgeous. The team worked well with vendors to ensure everything went smoothly and I didn’t have a worry in the world on the night! The food and alcohol was absolutely divine and the waitstaff were absolutely amazing and attentive to all guests. I’d do it all again at Panama in a heart beat!

Wow! What an incredible wedding we had at Panama dining room. Amy and Dan and their amazing team provided us with the most wonderful day we could of hoped for. From the initial booking, to tasting the food and wine and finally the big day, Amy and Dan were so prompt in their replies and so professional and accommodating in meeting all of our requests. Nothing was too much trouble. The venue was perfect for our 150 guests, the food and wine delicious and every one of our family and friends have said it was the best wedding they have been to. Oh..and those windows! So dreamy. Thanks , Panama team, we had the greatest day of our lives!

Julia & the crew was a delight to work with. They know what they are doing. Panama's food was consistently amazing. From our initial dining as guests to food tasting to the D-day, they didn't fail to deliver. Almost all of our guests have complimented how divine the dishes were. The team was also very light to work with. Easy to instruct and they are very professional and proactive. They know how to anticipate things. We will definitely be coming back to Panama, even as guests or maybe doing our next event there as well. They are superb!
