About Grapes Restaurant & Bar

Our Love for Food

The culinary proposal of Grapes Restaurant & Bar seeks to fuse Mediterranean cuisine with touches of international cuisine, to present unique options that surprise the palate of customers. Our dishes are very aesthetic, creative and unpredictable, where we play with the flavors to create one of the most original culinary experiences in Panama City. The menu features appetizers, soups, salads, risotto, grilled meats and seafood, as well as kosher options.

Among the starters, the Burrata Caprese stands out for its delicious combination of roasted tomatoes and burrata cheese, embraced with fine herbs, with basil pesto and arugula. In turn, the Tuna Tartare served in an avocado bed with oriental style vinaigrette is an ideal option to share before the main course. And if it comes to salads, the options are varied, although the blue cheese salad stands out for its contrast of strong flavors.

Grapes Restaurant & Bar menu is extensive and offers alternatives for all tastes. Among the pasta stand out the Ravioli stuffed with ricotta and porcini mushrooms in a subtle sauce of mushrooms and white wine. Another popular dish is the creamy Risotto of beef and prawns. Featured meats included the grilled entrails, the 12 oz Rib Eye and the New York Steak which are all characterized by the juiciness of the meat and the exquisite flavor.

We invite you to taste our select wine cellar that includes some of the best labels in the world, or a delicious handmade cocktail in our bar.

Our Chef

I am 25 years old, I studied in the HTIC of Santa Monica, Caracas, Venezuela. Eating is a great pleasure and I have dedicated myself to search into the long world of gastronomy, I had the pleasure of starting in the kitchen with the Venezuelan pioneer Chef Máximo Pabón, which has been a great influence for me. Recently graduated I decided to know Panama, I tried the guampao and here I stayed haha … almost all my experience and career I have had in this beautiful country, they have been almost 5 years knowing their culture and cuisine. I had the pleasure of working under the direction of Charlie Collins, considered an emblem of the New Panamanian Cuisine, which left me a great positive contribution and learning both for my career and as a personal level. For the love of this beautiful career, I was teaching at the Interamerican University of Panama. In these moments I dedicate myself to elaborate dishes of international gourmet food, my time and inspiration are dedicated nowadays to the Restaurant Grapes and Pips located in the Casco Antiguo.
