Pictures show a nice place, and it is. You enter the restaurant and feel embraced by a made up local culture. Food in the menu seems expensive, but we give it a try, thinking it would deliver. Here's the deal: you can feel the food...More

The personnel from the hostess to the person at the register were super courteous and friendly. The atmosphere is authentic of Guatemalan costumes and traditions, with live marimba, personnel wearing an attire representative of one of the indigenous region. Delicious food at a fair cost.

Kacao restaurant is a great restaurant located in a Guatemala City safe zone. The food is great and the restaurant offers a variety of dishes from all Guatemala regions. The price is a little expensive, but worth it since the food is great.

A big group of us came here and had a great evening. Admittedly they didn't want to turn up the music once we had eaten and wanted to party but that's understandable! Great food and great service.

Traditional and gourmet Guatemalan food set on a large "palapa"style architecture. Upscale traditional decoration, local music and waiters with typical outfits; great for turists, out of town clients, families and local foodies. A wonderful Guatemalan experience right in the center of the Hotel zone.
