Although we didn't stay overnight at Isla Verde, we would hike (or took a boat) from our lodge to enjoy their restaurant. Isla Verde nourishes the soul with delicious fresh, home made, pure food. From the moment you set foot on the grounds, you can't help but feel peaceful and relaxed. The restaurant is set in a whitewashed curved room with a large white couch, a table and chairs, leading out into a picturesque deck overlooking the breathtaking views of lake Atitlan. Adorned with hanging vines this deck is the perfect setting to enjoy, breakfast, lunch or dinner. We ordered the stuffed avocado, & sesame encrusted falafel wrap with fresh salad with nuts and berries. The large nachos & guacamole platter was very delicious.
Both the cold lemonade and milkshake were a fair size and really yummy. This restaurant is one of our favourite on the lake, not only for its amazing fresh food & service, but for the setting and atmosphere. Well done!
We're just sad we didn't have the chance to stay here overnight. There's no place like it!
