If you are looking for great ambience, amazing food and the most diverse cocktail menu on the lake - look no further! And make sure you don't miss out on their famous ribs night!!! Love this place.

Quila's is a popular, small restaurant that caters to locals, visitor and foreigners who are volunteering or otherwise working short-term in the Santiago area. The clientele is typically younger and energetic. The food and drink are very good, and often not readily available in other Santiago establishments. It is owned and operated by a family who are expats but now... More

After the hustle and bustle of Santiago, it was very refreshing to stop for drinks and food in this welcoming spot. While everyone was watching the World Cup, the owner graciously found us the US Open, and offered the big screen to watch. And the cocktails were hand crafted from local ingredients. The only bar we found with top shelf... More

A nice break from the hustle of Santiago and shopping, Quila's has a nice small but nice garden and a fairly quiet atmosphere during the noon and afternoon, with activities as the sun goes down over the mountain. Reasonably priced, staff speaks pretty good English, Frequented by the ex pat community, so you may have some interesting companions. The food... More

Although the food is pricer, the service and atmosphere here is excellent! Many English speakers here if you need a break from Tz'utujil. The mixed drinks are great and there is always something going on. Overall, great people and great food.

A classy place in Santiago with great food, drinks and a nice garden. They also play movies and have a good selection of board games.

Great food, great atmosphere, great fun - with a personal touch! What makes Quila's so great is that its not just a bar, a restaurant or a fun place to relax with friends...its all those things. First of all the space is really great. There's a nice area with tables and couches in the front for sitting quietly with friends... More

The owner at Quila's knows how to make a drink! Probably the best caipirinha I've had in Guatemala is at Quila's. The atmosphere is chill and unique - the only place like it in Santiago. It's a must for any tourists that visit Santiago. You'll find good food, great drinks, and great service. Also, my boyfriend says they have the... More

Quila's is a great place to grab a drink and a bite (try the super burrito..pretty sure it was t-bone and some other meat inside, delicious). But, it's not to be called a bar. Ask the ornery, yet sweet hearted Belgian owner why ;). If your in Santiago definitely check it out. Just grab one of the 600 tuk tuks... More

We had the opportunity to visit Quilas twice during our last visit to Santiago. Little hard to locate (near the dock or ask a Tuktuk driver). It is a fun place with a little something for everyone. Lite food - fries, burgers, soup, dessert----drinks alcohlic and non, Wi Fi, games, TV & books. At our first visit they were having... More
