Our Concept & Hospitality
Mahalo first opened it's doors in 2016 in Casco Viejo, Panama. It was founded by two Canadian sisters who both shared a passion for entertaining others but with a subtle influence in health and well-being. We like to eat but we like to leave feeling no heavier than when we arrived. With this in mind, our idea was to create healthy comfort food, by using a homestyle cooking approach on classic international dishes.
Our goal at Mahalo is to provide an experience for guests that will leave them satisfied in the belly and relaxed in the mind. We invite you to try one of our two locations in Panama, each with their own style. Mahalo Snack Shack was our original location, which is styled as an open air tropical cafe, serving up power bowls, fresh salads, sandwiches & our famous poke bowls. Mahalo Cocina y Jardin offers a slightly more urban tropical decor, with a beautiful garden and a more formal dining menu. We also offer an event space that can hold up to 120 people. We have previously held weddings, baby showers, baptisms, birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, etc. We are happy to work with you to personalize your special event.
Apart from our two physical locations, Mahalo is known for it's catering. We have catered all types of events from secluded islands, to jungle farms, to yacht parties. There is no situation that we won't consider, and we go into every event with a thorough plan to cater to personal touches and logistics.
