The restaurant is lovely with a marvelous lake Atitlan view. Service was excellent. We ordered Mohito, chicken soup and chicken fajitas. All were more than excellent. The gardens entrance fee was deducted from the bill. Very highly recommended.

This restaurant has many Maya's symbols and pieces of art. The images have part of Maya culture in its colors, fabrics and animals. The food is delicious with fish options (like robalo with cilantro), pastas (with green sauce, champignonse, and pollo) or salads with aguacate (different sweeter avocado)

We lived in Panajachel four years, and this was our favorite 'go-to' place to take visitors. The absolute best is the view... open-air dining (NEVER too hot or cold, please believe me) and the view overlooks gardens and a pool... and the lake with volcanoes in the distance. Gorgeous. The food is very good - I usually like the spinach... More

We had 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts in this restaurant. Lots of variety on the menu. We ate out on the terrace outside...oh my...what a view of the lake and volcanoes. The service was the best we had in Guatemala and outstanding coffee. Love it.

This hotel restaurant is consistently good. I've been here five times now and I am completely satisfied by their food and service. They have several non-meated pasta dishes, a couple of vegetable dishes and several good salads. I thoroughly enjoyed an avacodo,pesto,tomato salad and a cheese ravioli entree. A great selection of beers, wines and well drinks are also available.... More

Had the most wonderful curried shrimp avocado salad here! Fresh, tasty, perfect after our boat ride round the lake. Best lemonade con soda on the trip:) Others had sandwiches....all nicely prepared and delicious. Lovely gardens to walk around before or after lunch...filled with amazingly different colored hibiscus.

We had breakfast once, dinner twice and lunch once at the restaurant and the only meal I enjoyed was the fajitas. The seasoning was not very flavorful to me and even in the salad, the tomatoes were not that sweet and the dressing was a bit bland. In addition, the prices were quite high so unfortunately, I didn't like this... More
