Well it's right on the water and the food is excellent, service is relaxed like in most of Guatemala, but they get it done. Great cold Guatemalan beer, and even some desserts. They have people working there that have been there many years, that's a good sign. It is in an area you want to either drive to or take... More

Lovely location, cool breeze, good food. Nice place to stop for a rest from the bustle of a port town in Guatamala.

We ate at this restaurant because it was recommended by our tour guide and I am so glad that we did. We dined open air on the bay with great views of fishermen and diving sea birds. The coconut sea food fish was delicious. We all had sea food and it was fresh and delicious. It took about one hour... More

Definitely good place were to eat normal clean food and have a view on the bay. Especially if you are used to regular Guatemalan food, you will enjoy it. There are quite clean toilets and wifi. Just be ready for sellers in the restaurant that bothers you during eating and kids demanding money close to your car.

Staff was very friendly. Service was semi quick. You can't beat the location right on the the water!!! The car was parked right in sight which is always comforting... I went with a soup and my husband went with a cheeseburger and fries. We also ordered ceviche. The ceviche was good but nothing to write home about. My soup was... More

The atmosphere was quite. I talked to a local family that was eating a variety of seafood dishes which they were thoroughly enjoying. Especially... More
