Description: Traditional and gourmet Guatemalan food set on a large "palapa"style architecture. Upscale traditional decoration, local music and waiters with typical outfits; great for turists, out of town clients, families and local foodies. A wonderful Guatemalan experience right in the center of the Hotel zone.

“Beautiful, delicious and delightful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We like everything about this unique restaurant! Housed in an elegant palapa, it offers authentic and well prepared Guatemalan fare, with wait staff in traditional Guatemalan traje in a really pretty atmosphere! Don't miss it!

“Touristy but okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Located in zone 10, this restaurant is definitely for tourist! While the waiters wear traditional, regional dress, the food choices are not regional but still tasty. The food was fine but not memorable. The decor was nice.

“Nice ambience and good meat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is oriented for foreigners as traditional costumes and attitude is a bit exaggerated. The place is however lovely and the meals of quality.

“Guatemalan food best choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

If you are looking for Guatemalan food, this is the best option you can get in Guatemala city... the service is a good as the food. I really recommend the Pepian dish. It is a good choice if you are foreign or have friends who like to have new food or traditional food.
