We went to this restaurant as my wife was craving for some taco like food, really glad we came across this place. My wife was pleased with her tacos and I had the Chimichanga, both of us where happy and licking fingers afterwards. Apparently it is also a hotel, even if its not in the central area looks like a...

I have eaten here on two occasions, and both times, either the order was wrong or the food was cold when it arrived, only to be sent back to a microwave. The drink prices are also off the charts. Don't bother eating here.

We enjoyed our evening meal at Rolson's. We were given a table looking over the balcony which felt very nice. The menu pricing was average and local good food. Service was very quick and staff exemplary. We had a variety of items from the menu and portion sizes were good and the food was very nice. Thank you

This is located on the second floor a little out of town but worth the trip. You can eat inside or out on the veranda with a high view of the town of San Ignacio.

After trekking through the jungle (to Tikal), we decided to eat at Rolson's. Not only were they offering a 1/2 off margaritas for happy hour, they had a good selection for food. You can decide if you want a pricier meal or something more toned down. I grabbed three tacos for under $10USD and was stuffed! On the flip side... More

I have such a hard time finding places to eat in the area that I haven't been to a million times and I just came across Rolson's. It's a little bit pricey but the servers are always super nice and accomodating. I've eaten here a lot recently and I only had one dissapointing experience where I received a different item... More

We ate dinner here with friends who live in the area. We had nachos, burritos and a combination plate. Our friends had alcoholic drinks which were outrageously priced - $25 BZ for two gin and tonics and $9 for a plain rum with no mix. This is crazy - these are North American prices. Considering what we paid for dinner,... More

I went here for a special night out and had an enjoyable evening. The Location: It is right off the highway outside of San Ignacio. The place has a warm and cozy feeling with seating available inside or on the balcony. It can get a bit chilly later in the night but this is not a bad thing. The Food:... More
