Busy and pleasant place

We liked the variety of the generally Guatemalan dishes. Prices were very fair (wine even cheaper than many places) and the atmosphere was alive and buzzy. Good service and pleasant staff. Central location.

Its a nice looking restaurant - but slow service. The place was not full but it took some 15 minutes to get our table as "the waiter was busy taking orders". Had the Kac Iq soup - it was served almost cold so it had probably been waiting a while. The taste was unique - not in a good way... More

Accompanied by 3 local family members and spouse this was a quiet restaurant with colorful murals, flowers and its staff nicely dressed in the regional dress. Food was excellent and ordering a sort of a turkey broth, cant remember the name, but according to family very unique in its taste. Enjoyed it very much.

Nice setting, full of many funny/wise "sayings" on the walls --in Spanish, of course. The soup ("caldito") is probably the best, freshest I've ever had. I've been here many times, primarily for lunch. Highly recommend it!

The setting of the restaurant is gorgeous... the tables are set in a beautiful outdoor patio, with an open kitchen set right in the center. We tried to go the first night and it was filled to capacity, so we went a little earlier the following day and lucked out. The servings are generous, the food is delicious, and the... More

The service was average, the food was good. We were sat on a table way too close to the kitchen so it was not peaceful at all. They delayed our food for quite a while and we were "forgotten" by our waiter (change of shift). The horchata was delicious.

We loved the soft tamales at Fonda, and the ambience is special. The service was good and the prices are quite reasonable.
