“Great Value and good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

Have eaten at the wine bar many times - the food is aways great and the price reasonable.
Excellent choice for business or pleasure and almost always some live music.

“This is for the location on the Causeway”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We have eaten there a few times, but last time we left we decided not to return. The first time was fine, it was comfortable and there was a nice view to the passing traffic and the ocean across the street. The food was fine - not great, but passable. The second visit I ordered an individual pizza and it was so soggy and had so much cheese on it I couldn't eat it. (They do not offer refunds or replacements in Panama) Finally on our last visit, there were 4 other tables occupied. It was a Sunday afternoon. The waitress took our order and disappeared. She didn't bring us drinks, or check in with us again. Another table filled up next to us, and they were not even acknowledged. We waited for 30 minutes without acknowledgement or even a drink. We asked another waitress where our waitress was and she said she would check. She never returned (other tables had their food) after another 15 minutes we walked out and decided we would not ever return.

“Nice little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

If you're looking for a nice little "off the beaten path" restaurant that really separates you from the outside world... then this is a good choice. It's a completely different and unique Italian ambiance on the inside. Lots of choices to eat but honestly when we walked by the first time, the aroma of the pizza was captivating so we went right back and ordered 2 different sets. Amazing pizza and would happily go back there again !!

Only cons...
* Seating is a bit close to other tables
* Service at the end was a bit slow on waiting for the bill

If you visit that area, be sure to stop by and sample the pizza !!

“Nice experience, good food and reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a nice place which was near our hotel. We ended up eating there 4 or more times due to its nice ambience and good food. We enjoyed the pizza, salads and some of the pastas. The indoor courtyard is pleasant and the staff is accommodating. I probably would not go out of my way to eat here but it was nice to have a place like this in the neighborhood. Plus although food in Panama is okay, I got tired of eating the same dish over and over again. Italian food was a great change! Plus I enjoyed the wine esp. the vino tinto.

“Best meal in Panama City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We were looking for an open restaurant on New Year's Eve and happened to find The Wine Bar.
Were pleasantly surprised to find great food in an Italian restaurant in Panama. The seafood linguini was among the best I have had and the pizza was also delicious. Charming and helpful waitstaff.
