Great restaurant in Old Town

This is a must visit in Old Town. You can't go wrong here. They have live music upstairs on weekends but upstairs or down, the food is really great and the service matches the food.

The only problem I found with this restaurant was that it was a tiny bit expensive. Nevertheless, I got my money's worth. Would go back again.

Very nice atmosphere, and the food was excellent. Our table had 8, and the waiter was slow in attending. Once the food was served, everything was forgiven!

In addition to the excellent location, the food is delicious. We had arepas, tamales, tuna, rib-eye steak, and salmon. Following their signature characteristic of being a fusion of high Latin, Asian, and American cuisine, each of their entrees were tasty. The service has gotten even better. We were greeted at the door and escorted kindly to our table. Our waiter... More

This place leads the way in fine dining in the revitalizing old district. Great menu, fine wine selection, attentive service, and cool comfortable settings make this a must stop in Panama City.

I really liked the fried yuca appetizer and the arepas entree, the rest of the dinner was good, not awesome. We were a little dissapointed when the waiter told us they just had 2 o 3 wines available at the moment... the location is pretty good, so i would said it was an above average experience.

Have to apologize if there was something lost in translation. We have a huge wine cellar selection and get many commendations on the wine selection. Very strange. More

Grapes is good option to dine at the Casco Antiguo but somehow I left feeling a bit underwhelmed. The fried yuca appetizer was very good but the rest of my dinner was just OK. I was expecting a much better wine list for a restaurant named "grapes" but the wine by the glass offer was mediocre, I didn't look at... More

The building in which Grapes is located has a wonderful rich history and it is worth going there just to connect to it. The food was good, but not exceptional in any way. We were frankly a bit surprised by how uninspired the menu was. All the old standards were there, but nothing stood out. I had the Slow cooked... More

I ate here with my wife. As someone who dines out very regularly, I have to say that this was a disappointment. Expensive for the price and food while not pedestrian is not great.
