“Totally delicious, simple and reasonably priced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We went last Wednesday evening specifically to hear Veronica sing. She has a great voice. What impressed us also was the quality of the simple food. We divided the half chicken and baked potato with garlic sauce between the two of us. The flavours for such a simple dish were nothing short of exquisite. Our only slight criticism was that the atmosphere could have been more intimate. Perhaps a slight tweak with the lighting and the positioning of the performers and tables and it would definitely gain a 5 star rating from us.

For my second trip in Panama, I decided to go back to Café Chic in the center of the city and I had a wonderul time as it was the Live Jazz Evening with the Arturo Villarreal Trio, I had an excellent Mojito, a BBQ Burger and a homemaid chocolate mousse for a very affordable price.
I will come back for sure ! Thank you Café Chic !
