While visiting Guatemala I have always heard many of my friends talk about restaurante Rincón Suizo and how great it was but sadly none of them took me while I was visiting. So in nov. I traveled with my family to Panajachel and we read the name of the restaurant and I told them that I would not arrive to... More

Apart from the fact that this restaurant has some shops with traditional Guatemalan goods right outside, this place is definitely inspired by the Swiss building style. Food is average.

We stopped here by recommendation of our taxi driver. Food was fabulous, the atmosphere was cozy and the restaurant was clean. The hot chocolate is a must have.

Totally worth stopping here on the way to the ruins. The chocolate is amazing, and the cheese to die for

The waiter was rude and not at all welcoming, the crepe was undercooked, the television - both of them - were far too loud. If it were some important sporting event, maybe that would be understandable, but it wasn't. Just some musical program everyone had to talk over or remain silent. When the desert came we had to ask the... More

The food was amazing. We asked for the pariada, gives you different types of meats and cheese. Not bad for the price across the parking lot there is a little play area for you to take your children

Our family stopped in for some food on our way from Guatemala to Xela. They offer good food and reasonable prices. Wait times were a bit long, but I would certainly go back.

This restaurant prides itself on great service, delicious food. They do get real busy at times but when I was there it was half packed, lots of waiters and our food came quickly. You MUST try their home made juices served in glass coke bottles. The black berry is my favorite! And if you're in the mood for a crepe,... More
