Las Bovedas (the vaults) is a French restaurant at the Plaza de Francia set inside a historical gold storage vault for the Spanish and alleged jail for Manual Noriega. If the history itself isn’t reason enough to go, I’ll tell you that the food quality and service are just as memorable as the ambiance. They bring the large chalkboard menu around to each table to order. I went for sangria and pesca de la marina con vino
I hopped off my Panama City bus at the last stop and made my way towards Casco Viejo. Or so I thought. I walked in the wrong direction and if I have ever wanted to snap my little iPhone away at any place ever this was it. Unfortunately, it was pitch black outside and I was doing the whole “solo traveler” abroad thing for the first time so I resisted all temptations to point and shoot (pic above is from a later night) and attempted to hide the curiosity in my eyes while taking it all in.
