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.

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.

The pizza was great for Guatemala, but they put green olives instead of the listed black olives. Delivery was prompt and the delivery jolly.

First of all, nice pizza! I am a fan of the Prosicutto pizza, it is simply amazing. Every time I visit Panajachel, this is a restaurant I must go. Good service and great atmosphere, specially at night when there is Live music. You should go.

We stayed at Hotel Atitlan for two nights and one of those nights we wanted to venture off to see Pana . Seems like a great little town with fun nightlife! Our tourguide recommended Circus to us when we asked him about a casual, fun restaurant, with good (non-traditional) food. We thought it was perfect for what we asked for.... More

Great little bar and pizza place with a unique atmosphere. Good drinks and really good pizza. Live music on certain nights, with killer latin American music.My new hangout whenever I get back, and I surely will!

This was recommended by our B&B. Service was good, the food was excellent. We had pasta one night and we could hardly finish the large portion. Prices were very good, including beverages. We also had take out pizza one night and they delivered it nice and hot. All the food is fresh and made in-house.

We had dinner here last week. There were two guys playing guitar and singing when we sat down and ordered pizza. While the food was good the music was great. after an hour another two guys sat down to play. One was on a violin and the other a guitar. That started playing some wonderful jazz. I did not expect...
