I came here from Laguna San Pedro on a day off by boat. The boat ride was very bumpy. After arriving by boat, we immediately came to the restaurant while we waited for our 2 hour massage appointment (which was worth every penny by the way! and very reasonable too!).
The restaurant has a wonderful view and a beautiful setting! Compared to the restaurants on the other side of the lake, this restaurant is fantastic. It is clean, has a wonderful wooden bar, and has a tremendous variety of alcoholic beverages with wonderful fresh fruits and a variety of rums, including the best and most flavorful rums from Guatemala and other local national rums from nearby countries.
The menu is small but has a wonderful variety of choices for both breakfast and lunch!
They have the best EMPANADAS that I have found in years! I absolutely love empanadas and these were delicious and very authentic: (they included currants, meats and potatoes; that is an authentic empanada!). They were fried to a crisp golden brown, were not soggy, and were perfect in every way. The presentation of the plate was colorful, and the service was excellent.
We were able to sit at the beautiful table and enjoy the view. The wait staff was excellent; we were not rushed or made to feel we were intruding.
Even though we were not registered guests in the hotel and there just for the day, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously.
