I have herd of this restaurant form a number of friends so when I found myself in Livingston I just had to find Mc Tropic Restaurant, they were right the coconut curry was the best that I have ever tasted; it was bursting with flavour,, I highly recommend it ,, you should also try the Coco Loco very unique drink made from fresh coconut (with rum),,Great service. Great atmosphere ,,,also check out the antique iron collection..

“Coconut Curry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I think this is the best option in Livingston for vegetarians. And for everyone, really. Foods and flavors you don't find often in Guatemala. Be sure to try the coconut curry! Nice sidewalk tables... good for people watching. Great Caribbean style!

“Good spot to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I totally recomend this restaurant! we seat right out side, we had all the street view, very good music with nice seafood fusion dishes, we tried the tapado wich is a garifuna soup all kind of seafood on it with coconut milk, also the thai curry is another opción for sure to feel the caribean side of the town. We ask for cocoloco(coctail With rum) and piña coladada, but the best are the happy hour mojitos.

“Excellence in a sea of TAPADO soup.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

The food is great and the menu has more variety than most. Every restaurant serves some version of the local Tapado soup, but this is the best. The menu also features great curries, and other interesting dishes; all good.
The main chef de la casa is Melanie, who strives to bring the freshest ingredients, and new dishes to the menu.
The family who own and operate Mc Tropic restaurant have been in Livingston for three generations. You often find the grandmother, her middle age adult children, and their adult children all hanging out and enjoying the night. This makes for a very cozy and homey atmosphere.
