After the humid hustle and bustle of business district Panama, this charming oasis of the Old Town is a trip down memory lane with attentive service and delicious dishes to savour.

We stopped in this restaurant on our first night staying in Panama's Casco Viejo and we are so happy we did! When we first walked in, the restaurant was empty, but I think we just ate a little earlier than people normally do in Costa Rica. It was about 7pm. And more folks trickled in shortly after. I had the... More

The woman who took my info didn't pass it along. So we didn't get that service. They waiter tried to do it but it... More

This restaurant is in Casco Veijo in the older part of Panama City. The interior is very much old style, but lovely. Both food and service was excellent, however it is in the more expensive category. Should be noted it helps if you have a small grasp of Spanish :)

There was going to be a wine tasting and it was cancelled....but we were not notified of the cancellation, since they didn't have our phone number. The management apologized and made us an offer we couldn't refuse, so we stayed for dinner and drinks. We all ordered different items and everyone was very pleased. We will go back again.

Since my last time at this restaurant several years have passed, but the dining experience and the service received was equal or better. Today Casco Viejo area has a lot more options than Grape's, but certainly, this is still one of the best options in that area. I ordered a tuna tartare as appetizer and as main course I ordered...

A great restaurant but on the high side for prices. Great ambience in an older building in Casco Viejo, service was good. Very little english spoken. Food was very good

A nice atmosphere restaurant, food is made precisely the way you ask for, with quite a wine selection. A must when going to Casco Viejo. Try the tuna tartar for starters and a nice steak as a main.

It's a bit stuffy actually. Service is almost too much since there aren't a lot of people early in the evening (7pm reservations and it was empty). Food was just ok and a bit pricey. I think there are better options to be honest.

The Restaurant is situated in one of the rooms of a fully restored private mansion dating back to 1657 and is one of the very first structures built in the old fortified Spanish city. The original walls and arches are skillfully blended into a cosy dining and bar area. We have now expanded further into the old house and now offer private dining
