Authentic!

I loved this place! We stumbled upon it when we were walking around town. We reviewed the menu...& knew we wanted to have some "typical" food. This is the place for that. The owner, Niglan is a wealth of information on everything Flores. He was a delightful host. The Chili Relleno was quite tasty... read more

For our last meal before heading back to Guatemala City, we stumbled into this little place. The food was rich and authentic. The owner--Niglan--was very friendly, and knew everyone----including, it turns out, the guide we had hired earlier in the week to take us to some ruins in the Tikal area.

Had a nice dinner and enjoyed the decent Mexican fare offered. The restaurant opens out to one of the main streets of Flores Island. Tacos were quite good and all dishes were good value. Moreover, service was good and the owner, who is very much conversant in English, was warm and friendly.

I was looking for a nice lunch. I found that at this restaurant. The prices are nice, the owner was very nice & helpful. He spoke great English, which was a plus for me... Since I came to Central America without any knowledge of Spanish :) My favorite dish anywhere in the world is Chicken Alfredo & I was pleasantly... More

We popped in to have a couple of Liquados (smoothies - about Q18) and also had a plate of nachos to share (Q38). The plate was a bit small for the price but non the less was very tasty. Overall, the atmosphere was very pleasant and the owner was super-friendly. Worth a visit

We stopped in here on a whim for a late dinner (arriving around 8:30pm) and found the prices to be very reasonable, especially for a tourist area like Flores. We were even more thrilled with the owner, who is very personable and speaks very good English. We were surprised yet again when the food came and it surpassed all expectations:... More

Lots of choices here in Flores but we really enjoyed our visit to El Tucan. We had a vegetable plate covered with large shrimps and a chicken Kebab. Both were prepared and presented very well. All the ingredients were fresh and tasty. Service was very attentive. Good value too!

Our experience at El Tucan was very good all around. Service was attentive. The owner stopped by to see if we were content with out food, and we were. The shrimp was excellent as was the kebab with chicken. Prices are very good too!
