Circus Bar Restaurant was recommended so the family and I gave it a try. The place had reservations for a large group but they still accepted clients. We were able to obtain a table outside. Service was good and food came right away even though it was packed with clients eating and drinking and listening to great live music. The... More

Service is slow but so is everything in Guatemala so no complaints. They were/are friendly...just a little slow. We had pizza and gnocchi. The pizza is by far the most Americanized version of the dish that we've had in Pana. Good crust, cheese and sauce (we only had cheese on the pie since the kids were eating it). My wife... More

Probably the best pizza in Panajachel. We went here twice and loved it! We asked for a pizza that's not on the menu, made of 2 cheeses with prosciutto and sun dried tomatoes and it was heavenly. We also had a cocktail of coco and apple without alcohol and milk with cacao also without alcohol and it was great. The... More

We were wondering around Pana on our last Friday on the lake looking for a warm place to have dinner and a couple of drinks, not knowing anything about Circus Bar we went in because it looked inviting and it seemed to have a nice crowd. I'm glad we did, we had pizza and wine and although the place seemed... More

We stopped just for beers and pizza because it's a mandatory stop for tourists visiting Pana. Bought a souvenir.

I was told by several people to go here for the pizza, but I was quite disappointed. I ordered a simple Margarita pizza, but there was way too much cheese on it, the bottom was pretty black, but the top wasn't baked well. All in all an ok pizza, but not what I expected! Wouldn't go back for the pizza.

Came here for dinner, having been recommended by our accommodation and told there was live music as well as good food. Had steak and chips and pasta. Steak was pretty good pasta was nice but a little heavy. Wine was nice. Stayed for a few drinks after to listen to the live music which was excellent. Good bar atmosphere in... More

The menu is variated an everything that you order is good. I was surprised by their salads, you don't have to order only pizzas. Seating and cleanness of the place can be a hazel, avoid the bathroom is a complete mess.
