The terrace of the restaurant has a nice view over Gracias. Beside, the food was delicious. They offer a mix of different plates of local and international food. I had the black bean soup and tried the Mexican tacos as well. The food was very tasteful, the staff was friendly and the service was good.

Even if the food were not remarkable the view alone would make this place worth visiting. High over the city is a comfortable terrace with a beautiful view. The atmosphere is relaxed and gives you a good feeling. I had a fish soup which was really good. The service was efficient and friendy , and informations about Gracias and the... More

All the action is here. They have wonderful rooms and wonderful service. But best of all is the relaxed way Froni runs the place. Also, it is so pleasant on the restaurant terrace. The food is great, reasonably priced and the company here is the best.

I was staying there as a guest and enjoyed two delicious breakfasts: the tipico and the huevos ranchereos. I especially loved the soupy refried beans. Muy rico! Very good customer service. I liked to sit on the balcony, looking over Gracias. Bet that the other food is also very good.

I loved the view and the outdoor sitting. The food wasn't remarkable but very good for the price. I was traveling alone and felt very comfortable sitting by myself as the restaurant as it had a very friendly atmosphere.

We ate here recently and the chicken rollitos were indeed delicious. The view and setting make this restaurant worthy of a visit. On a humid June evening, the breeze is delightful. The plates typicos are tasty as well if eggs, refritos, plantains and tortillas are more to your liking.

Guancascos was my typical go-to when I was living and working in Honduras several years ago. I always knew I could go there to sit on the balcony, look over Gracias, have good food and drink, and relax. Since my time working in Honduras, I've gone back to visit every year and always stay in the hotel. The service is... More
