Dining at the Holiday Inn Panama City
Bellini Café & Cocktails
There are many options for dining in Panama City but there is only one Bellini! The Bellini Café offers steaks, seafood, and pasta, and the beautifully appointed bar is known as the Bellini Cocktail Lounge. The name was derived from an Italian champagne cocktail called the bellini, which is a light and fresh combination sparkling wine with a fruit puree, and that really fits the atmosphere in the newly remodeled Holiday Inn. Sticking with that theme the Chef Paul has created unique Dinner, Lunch and Lounge menus that emphasize the Italian theme with a touch of an American flare.
