Luncheon #1 was delightful. Very French Bistro. Owner on premises. Wonderful fresh baked bread. Pastries lined up behind refrigerated, glass display case, like jewels. Menu du jour, w/ a glass of house wine, dessert all for $14.90++. I chose a smoked salmon salad off the regular menu, wine and a dessert. My partner the former. Average service. Magical meal. A...

Menu and pastry are nice; reasonable prices; service slow; area outside hot, inside squeezed. Probably best to take away (bread,pastry)

My wife had the English breakfast ,with 2 eggs , bacon and toast, with hot choco and orange juice. I had the 3 egg omelette with tomato and ham and toast. Really nothing special . They could have made... More

Slow service in the beginning then we got a really good waitress. Despite the name the restaurant is not French, only the part that sells baked goods. The cuisine has more of a Spanish, Italian or international touch to it. Pumpkin soup good. Chicken in mustard salsa not bad. Shrimp ceviche good. Stir fried vegetables tasty. Sit out (hot) sit...

We ate a panini and risotto. The food was delicious, but did not stand out. The creme brule was at best average. The service exceeded most restaurants in Panama. The house wine was average. The lemonade my daughters drank was just ok and far too expensive.

PP is a regular visit when in PTY. Croissants are perfect (try the chocolate and almonds), as well as the breakfast sandwiches. Best coffee service in the city, without trying too hard. Prices are what you would expect of a place with great food and great service.

We stumbled upon Petit Paris while walking around after arriving in Panama City and after trying a chocolate croissant, we went here every morning for them. The coffee was good, the croissants very flakey and delicious, however the macaroon cookies were not as good as we hoped.
