November and I met this place on October looking for other restaurant in the mall...today was my 4th time and the first 3 were just fine. Everything, the service, the attention of everybody even at the moment of the bill. But sadly today I have to say that my Thai Tai Salad, which was supposed to be chicken breast with... More

I've only visited once,arranged a biz meeting here during lunch. Service excellent, ice tea delicious [made fresh not bottled...really appreciate this], had the Roast Beef w/salad, followed by cafecito. I just want to say...everything was excellent. Will be on my Panama list forever I hope. BTW: Located on second floor directly in the center of the mall not located in... More

Take a break from shopping and dine in this mall-based restaurant. They have mostly sandwiches and salads on the menu and some cakes and empanadas. The jamon serrano appetizer was ok but better if the bread was crispy. The Upper Burger and the quesadillas are actually very good.

Typically, I have had good salads and sandwiches here; the service was above average, and the wait staff very friendly. Today, my Chicken Tikki Salad was bits and pieces of chicken in a sauce over wilted, wet greens. The waiter never came back after food delivered to refill water. $15 for salad and sparkling water. I can get a great... More

Stopped in for a vino while my wife was shopping. Owner (Manager?) was very nice until my wife showed up and I asked for the check so we could move on. Guess maybe he got really miffed as it was just a glass of wine but turned into a jerk right way.

I've dined here twice in the last couple of weeks and I must say the meals I had were pretty good on both occasions. In particular, the upper burger was delicious, though it was a little pricey for such a small portion and came with plantain chips, not French fries or wedges.... If the WiFi signal (by Wigo) had worked... More

I went here for a light lunch. I found the prices quite steep but I am willing to pay if quality, service and food are of a high standard. I had a half portion salad with peanuts, chicken, coriander and carrot - it was more than enough - very tasty and fresh. I also had a latte - which was... More

We went on Sunday for lunch, they had a corn chowder which was quite nice. The sandwiches are good, but do not expect New York deli-style sandwiches. Bread is fresh and there is a good variety of food to choose from. Next time we will have the quiche. We did not eat dessert as we did not see variety, perhaps... More

There are several places in Panama where you can go have a sandwich, however I think this is the only one in town where a sandwich is a gourmet experience. The chef merges tastes from different cultures creating something interesting. I personally enjoy the Tikka Rikka. The ingredients are excellent quality, and the bread is personally made by them, which... More

If you're tired of the same old sandwiches and want something different, sophisticated and very tasty this is the place to visit. You wont find better sanswiches in Panama and trust me that I have tasted a lot of sandwich joints. I find it very convinient that there is a lunch alternative in the mall that is not located in...
