Hey! How does $20 for two fried eggs, a few pieces of bread, two coffees and a wee fruit salad of balled melons sound? Good? Then you’re out of your mind and this is the place for you. Maybe this isn't the place for breakfast.

Recommended by our AirBnB owner, we had breakfast at Petit Paris. Food was yummy and fresh. Croissants buttery and flaky. Coffee prepared nicely. Service was pleasant and attentive. We enjoyed it so much we returned the next day for the nutella banana crepes!! Of course this can not be compared to Paris...unless you are in Paris...this was a great breakfast... More

I have been to Paris several times, and France, and petit Paris did not remind me of France at all. Had their crepes, macarons, breads.. The bread is decent, the rest is certainly not memorable. The staff is poorly trained, and the deco, hmm they tried to revamp it somehow, but doesn't look clean, not a a big fan, wouldn't... More

A couple of blocks from our condo, I noticed it on my way to the 'wine store'. We both had Filet Mignon and they were done exactly as ordered and with I nice bottle of Pinot noir it was one of the best dinners ever. Our waiter was very attentive and spoke good English. Although we didn't try any the... More

Hubby and I stopped in for a snack (wine and cheese). Enjoyed it. The bakery looked delish, but our waistline would not allow us to indulge in the beautiful breads!

The waiters try so hard to speak English and have an amazing attitude. Great breakfast too! The coffee is also excellent. A lot of locals were coming in just to buy fresh French baguettes to go!

We stumbled into Petit Paris for a late lunch and found ourselves delighted by its quiet elegance wonderful service and marvelous menu. This gem located on a side street near Via Espana Felipe Motta wine store possesses an old world charm. Its menu is artful mix of french and Panamanian cuisine. The puree of squash with seafood soup was delicate... More

The first time we ate here, our waiter was very helpful explaining the menu to us in English. He made recommendations and we were not disappointed. On one visit, I ordered a florentine sandwich. The waiter told me I should try the florentine crepe. It was the BEST crepe I have ever had. After that I just always asked our... More

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.
