I am absolutely shocked there is a restaurant of this quality in Pana. Fine dining at a very reasonable price when compared to the US. Yes it is expensive for Guatemala, but you can walk away with a 3 course filet mignon dinner for $25 that would cost you 75+ back home. Service is a bit slow, but that is... More

While Guatemalan food can be delicious, sometimes you just need a good ole steak cooked right. Chez Alex has everything you might crave and does it all really well. It's a quaint and classy 5 star restaurant and the best part is most dishes are only between 10-15 dollars, just a fraction of what you would pay back home.

It came much later, and I have to give them the credit that they did NOT charge for it at all. We ordered a bottle of wine and... More

I had dinner at Chez Alex Nov 2013. I was part of a large group, most with separate checks. We were seated promptly in the courtyard and well attended to. Waiters spoke English and it was an easy comfortable time and a great meal. I can't remember if the tip was included in the bill but look to see that... More

This has got to be the best restaurant I have visited in Guatemala. The food is Great at affordable prices. You get a three course meal for less than 100 Quetzal! The staff speaks English and they give you excellent service.

This place caught my eye several years ago walking thru Pana. It looked so nice I thought I could not afford it, but the prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food, which is excellent. It looks fancier than the prices actually are. Sitting in the window watching people walk by and stopping to read the menu I... More

The restuarant has a nice ambiance and a great menu. Try the fish as its fresh and prepared just right. Prices are good value and the service is very good too.
