What a find! Beautiful ambiance, delicious food, and fun setting (I mean, they give you a pencil so that you can draw on the table cover). The service was great yet not over the top the way they can be in "nice" places in Guatemala. House wine-- lovely. Steak frites-- yummy and interesting, I think I tasted a bit of... More

While we didn't actually try the absinthe as it was lunchtime and we still had some sightseeing to do, we did have a wonderful lunch at Bistro Cinq. We wanted to try as much as possible so opted for tapas style over the delicious sounding daily specials, which included lamb for Q260. We enjoyed marinated olives, a local cheese plate,... More

The best way to welcome 2015!. The risotto with jumbo shrimps was delicious, the shrimps were cooked to perfection. Our waiter Johnny was very attentive and made us feel very special, even though the place was packed. Thank you Bistrot Cinq for a great evening.

My family and I went for the special new years' menu at Bistrot and it was awesome! I had the Provençal Calamari - as a starter- which was amazing. For the main course, I ordered the Tenderloin with glazed onions and foie gras, you could not believe the explosion of flavors and textures. Finally, for the dessert, a homemade raspberry... More

Good food, excellent service and great atmosphere. Ate lunch here lunch here twice and dinner twice. Marlon el camerero recognized us and made us feel very welcome. He even found us a table late one evening when they were very busy and near the end of service when we arrived after a terrible experience at Panza Verde.

It's not very often that while on vacation I'll eat the at same restaurant twice in one week, but in Bistrot Cinq's case I made an exception. On the first occasion we sat at the bar, as the restaurant was full but the very helpfully and friendly bar tender made it a very pleasurable experience. He started by making us... More

Had NYE dinner and really enjoyed it, a deconstructed melon and prosciutto made into melon soup with prosciutto skewer, an excellent baby greens salad with cardamom honey dressing served with brie wrapped in phyllo, and a big piece of tenderloin with cheese sauce and roasted onions. Original and tasty. Dessert ... Baked Alaska was so so. Loved the atmosphere, great... More
