The restaurant was recommended by a gentleman that has been living in Gutate for the last 15 years. He said it is an excellent fish restaurant. And he was right. I had a "robalo" with garlic, olive oil, vinegar and chili (one of their specialities) and it was quite good. The service was very friendly and the beer was cold... More

We really enjoyed De Mario. We went with a group of 6 people. We had paella, fish, 16oz steak and deditos tocino. Everyone was very happy with their meals. Presentation, preparation and flavor....excellent. Everything freshly prepared by the owner and chef. Excellent personal attention and service. Well done all around!!!!!

If you want to have the best spanish taste in Guatemala, don't miss De Mario. Located in the heart of Zona Viva (z10), Totally recommend their meats, the lobster and their paella valenciana. Please do yourself a favor and order your meat with "patatas a lo pobre", you will not regret it!!

Both dishes were well prepared; the portions were enormous!! The bread was superb and other than the annoying habit that most restaurants have of clearing one persons plates before... More
