Lovely simple lunch of gazpacho and a ham sandwich on a fresh baguette, coupled with a delicious Spanish white wine...cool spot, good food, good service.

This place has everything you need. Service is fantastic, food is awesome, the menu is extensive, and if you don;t have enough to drink at dinner you can buy bottles off the shelf to take home. Bon Vivant is a frequent favorite of ours.

Although the beer selection is extensive they had 3 choices of mine not available. If it's on the menu please stock the product.
Nice cheese and meat platter - good atmosphere. Reasonable prices.
Service pretty standard for Panama a bit sketchy but it all works out. Very nice selection of cheese - meat - beer and wine for sale also.

Cool spot - check it out.

I lived in Panama for almost two years and I was very pleased when I found out about this place, there was nothing like this before. They have a great variety of wines and cheese. You should definitely make a stop and visit this place, the staff is always willing to help you and make you feel more than welcome. One bad thing, they can be kind of slow if the place is crowed.

The name of the restaurant caught my attention. After having lived in France for years, I felt I had to check the place. Sadly, it was a rather disappointing experience, too much "design" [typical modern Catalan style] and extremely poor service and bad food. Too pricey. In Panama you can find tens of other restaurants of MUCH better quality of food and excellent service. Although I must admit the Catalan owner is a friendly gentleman and the shop sells some good stuff from Europe. I am not sure though how many in Panama actually appreciate Roquefort or Brie..
