1 in 3 diners wouldn’t choose to eat in a restaurant with an overall Tripadvisor rating below 4 on a scale of 1 to 5.

This is especially true when diners are travelling whether on business or pleasure as they do not know the city so well.

32 percent of consumers need to read 4 to 6 reviews before putting enough trust in a business. (7 percent need to read 20!)

People looking for a restaurant to dine in are likely to consult TripAdvisor and read what others have said about it.

TripAdvisor’s Popularity Index

To rank businesses, TripAdvisor uses a “Popularity Index” that determines guest satisfaction with the restaurant so it won’t just be ranked by price or class, but instead quality, quantity and how recent the reviews are.

This ranking allows customers to know not only if the restaurant fits their budget, but also how users rate the cleanliness, safety, the service, the standard of food and more.

Each search is ranked by quality and is calculated by the Popularity Index to ensure that reviews will be fresh and unbiased.

Some recent reviews on Tripadvisor

Another excellent meal – more people need to know about Grapes!

Grapes restaurant is a hidden secret on the edge of the Casco Viejo, close to the Presidential Palace. Since my last visit, the restaurant has changed the layout of its covers and has installed a piano, where musicians entertain diners during the weekend.

The menu is varied and extensive, offering a range of excellent fayre from steak to ceviche. The wine list is very good and the pre-dinner cocktails are prepared by an excellent mixologist.

Grapes is not somewhere I would go every night, but for a special occasion, a weekend treat, or for a quiet meal with friends where good food, service and surroundings are key, it would be top of my list.

We Love Grapes! – Best Restaurants 2019 in Panama

We visited Grapes with a group of 24 travelers on an adventure travel trip. They did an excellent job handling our drinks and orders while gracious and welcoming. Food was wonderful and the piano accompaniment was very much appreciated. Lovely evening.
