Reviewed 21 April 2016 via mobile

The restaurant is simple but nicelly decorated.
There is a real effort on the food. Good product, well prepared half way between panamenian cuisine and French.
There was a real attention to details and the price were really correct for Panama.
Around 25 usd per person with 2 beer, first and main course.
I really recommend if you look for a healthy place where to eat in Panama.

Been in Panama for more than two months and this might be the best restaurant I've been to. Sorry that I only discovered it on my last day. Simplemente Frances offers streamlined French Cuisine in an elegant, sophisticated, sleek environment. We had the Shrimp with Diablo sauce, and Fish with Ratatouille and both were excellent. The restaurant offers several Prix Fix menus, beginning at $18.00. Without question the bread and dessert were the best I've had in Panama. Not the least of it's appeal is that it's only a hundred feet from the Santo Tomas subway station, which eliminates the cab/traffic/street crossing/bus route complications of being in Panama City. We will have spent two weeks in Panama City, starting and ending the trip in a hotel just a short distance from Simplemente Frances; so we've been to a number of restaurants in the area, and nothing we encountered compares. A experience in 'world dining' among 'local' restaurants. My one reservation might be that a slightly more generous 'pour;' of the house wine would be appreciated.

We were looking for a light evening meal and found just the right place. The menu is not large but the selection is very exquisite.
