“Tasty Pizza, good atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This place has the best atmosphere in the Panchan area. I really loved the pizza here, served with lots of ingredients other dishes looked nice. Caught some great live music when I was here also and good drink prices. This a 100% tourist destination in a great location in paradise! I didnt have the problem but some family memebers I went with got really sick from the food, they ate a fish dish so be careful with what you order if you have a gringo stomach. If you go to Panchan this is where the action is at!

“a good experience, but a true tourist place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Location : top !, Food quality : very good, Price level : fine ! Atmosphere : great, but mostly tourists. And it's also a nice place to take the kids and let them have a pizza for a change after all the mexican food.

“Different, funny, post hippie place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Funny to see old habbits survive: hippies, rasta's and yogi's carefully preserving their cult observed by flocks of tourists eating a mediocre meal. The atmosphere is very nice with life music and hippie entertainment!

“Very nice place iclose to the jungle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We had a wonderful evening there. Nice food, simple, but ok and the atmosphere was very nice out there. So close to the ruins and so special. We strongly recommend that place at night.

“Really fun place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

They had crazy cheap food (huge filet mignon for about $10usd) and excellent pizza. It is attached to a backpacker enclave, so they keep it interesting and cheap. Beers were less than $2 USD and the full bar of mixed drinks were only about $3-4 USD. The live music was FANTASTIC. We also had breakfast there another day, and it was superb as well. Go check it out for sure.
