Hotel Gran Nacional Buffet

It had been a long time since I had eaten the buffet at Hotel Gran Nacional, so today I treated my self. If I remember correctly, it was $5.95 for all you can eat. I think it is $8.50 on Sundays. I had been disappointed the last time I had gone to the buffet at Hotel Puerta del Sol and I wanted to compare.

I think Hotel Puerta del Sol had more main choices and a larger salad bar, but the quality of Gran Nacional was far better. I always thought that Gran Nacional had the best buffet in David and I haven’t changed my mind.

You start off at the soup station

Followed by the salad bar.

Next comes the main course. Here we have rice and chicken.

I choose the beef loin instead of chicken today.

I loved the platano and the red beans were great.

And to complete the meal I had some fresh fruit and some cake which was outstanding as well.

  1. My husband and I enjoy the buffet quite often and have never had a “bad meal” … It is also very clean and the staff are top of the line. We have also stayed a few nights and enjoyed the casino which was in the lobby. They have moved it across the street and it is called the “Fiesta Casino”. The live music though is sometimes quite loud.

  2. I just read my last comment and realized I pulled a “Don Ray”. I, John’s wife, wrote the comment and noticed “John Haluska says” — “My husband and I……..”..He doesn’t have a “husband” — he has “me”. Must be a “senior moment”. Guess we can all laugh at ourselves at one time or another.

  3. You know you need to start worrying when you pull too many “Don Rays”.

    I really hate to go back and read my old posts. I hate mistakes and being a poor writer, I have to work pretty hard to get something to read correctly.

    I have finally decided to consider this blog as always being in “draft” mode. A draft is expected to contain a few mistakes.

  4. I find it strange that no one has commented here since 2006. I have been here at least 7 or 8 times in the past few years. It has been my favorite restaurant in David since I first found it. I was worried the first time as it looked a bit upscale for me but the food is always excellent and it is not expensive. Service is way above the Panama average. When I ordered a fruit punch, I noticed the server actually cutting up the fruit. Can’t get any fresher than that. I eat here at least twice on every trip to David.
