We had pasta with seafood and sea bass with garlic and mixed vegetables. Both were very good, as was the accompanying sangria. Service was excellent.

I went here for dinner on my own. It was my second try with Mario's, and I was disappointed both time. The meal was fine, and the service as good, but overall it wasn't worth the price. Altuna prepares better cuisine and has better service. You can also get paella for one at Altuna. If you're in the Zona Viva,... More

I have been a regular of Marios for a very long time, I reckon that restuarants in Spain are superior, however, given the limitations to get the right ingredients here, Marios is very decent when compared with top Spanish restaurants. Having said that, I recommend Marios seafood Paella, you will not get a better paella in Guatemala, as good as... More

The restaurant was recommended by a gentleman that has been living in Gutate for the last 15 years. He said it is an excellent fish restaurant. And he was right. I had a "robalo" with garlic, olive oil, vinegar and chili (one of their specialities) and it was quite good. The service was very friendly and the beer was cold... More

Presentation, preparation and flavor....excellent. Everything freshly prepared by the owner and chef. Excellent personal attention and service. Well done all around!!!!!
