ASK FOR THE BILL and check it before paying. I was charged with a total amount that included 20% tip without my consent, and after that I was even allowed to include 10% more on the credit card statement. When I asked for the fiscal invoice she was totally surprised and only later I realized what they have done (I... More

Very nice menu especially for dinner. The dishes are quite tasty with good presentation. The ambiance is much better inside and the service is good and friendly. The prices are average but not cheap. The bakery is average and the bread is alright, but definitely not authentic French patisserie that would transport you to Paris, but for Panama standards is... More

Nice bakery with French pastry. They did a jolly good job inside. We actually preferred to sit outside despite the fact that there they still have to refurbish a lot to bring me to Paris. Mind you most Paris bakeries miss a good terras as well so they are in good company. The food is good, service is Panama level,... More

We were in a bit of a hurry and decided to sit down for a quick sandwich at Petit Paris. Unfortunately the food was bland and totally mediocre. I had a turkey sandwich, which had very little turkey on it and everything else was pretty tasteless. My husband had the roast beef, which was also really bland. It took quite... More

This restaurant is located close to the financial district in the inner city. It was within walking distance of our hotel and we chose it for convenience. The food was tasty and they served a nicely cooked steak. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I would go back for a return visit.

Found by accident two blocks from my hotel. Staff super friendly and manager spoke refreshingly good English as well as French and the local Spanish. He recommended a Brie salad that was un believable! Large fresh and great taste fusion. Had a crepe just like off the streets of Paris . Pastries looked wonderful in the case but we were... More

REstaurant was walking distance from the Panama Riu and was recommended to us by our tour guide. Ceasar salad, bruchetta and chicken special were all excellent. Service was also very good. Waiter spoke enough english to understand our order and was trying hard to improve.

Had dinner there a couple of nights ago. I had the risotto, husband had the chicken florentine. Both meals were very tasty, a bit on the heavy side. Had the chocolate fondant which was described as a molten lava cake. It was very good and flavorful but was overcooked, therefore, no "lava" from the cake. Server was very attentive, which... More

First visit had the ham and cheese croissant and my friend had a pastry. We both liked it. Went back a few days later and we both had the ham and cheese croissant and both ended up with upset stomachs. I liked the place, but can't recommend anywhere that makes you ill.
