We spent just over a week at Hotel California and having Solomon's Porch Cafe on the ground level was awesome! We had breakfast and dinner there several times throughout the week. And even though Panajachel is full of places to eat, Solomon's Porch was our favorite! The live music was a great addition to our dinner as well! Be sure... More

The wings here are some of the best I've had, I still get cravings for them when I'm back in the states!! The nachos are delicious too. The music is fun and makes for a great casual environment to hang out!

First night's dinner was pasta primivera - fresh, local veggies. al dente pasta, with a light cream sauce (not the thick alfredo sauce we're accustomed to in the States). Delicious! For lunch one day, someone suggested the hamburger - another pleasant surprise! Tender, tasty and huge! And fries were crisp and not... More

After I was home for a week (in Florida, USA), I was ready to fly back all the way to Guatemala just for Melanie's Cowboy Cookies. They are amazing. The food here is very good and if you want to relax to some good ole rock and roll - there is not better place. Proceeds from the restaurant go toward... More

Super nice folks, attentive, gentle, and helpful along with the high quality service and taste. Also, there are some tables out front where you can really get... More

Yes, I will be joining the bandwagon by saying how great the nachos were. Not only are the nachos the best in Pana, they are also the best nachos I have ever eaten! Everyone that worked there was amazingly nice, and did their very best to make sure you were having a good time. The bands were phenomenal (I was... More

Having traveled through Mexico and El Salvador and not liking their version of nachos it was with much surprise to find nachos so good we kept going back for more. We also spread the word in town!
