I love this place. A great open courtyard with separate areas, including a table for two up a small staircase. There’s also a couple of rooms inside, one with tables for working, eating or drinking and also one with a sofa and chairs. Even the...More

Stopped in and immediately liked the quiet, open dining area in a courtyard. I had the chicken burrito with veggies, rice and beans topped with a delicious sauce. My son had the vegan burger. Both dishes were delicious. Inexpensive as well. Would certainly return!

Not too far from the square. Food was really good. Service was a little sparse. We had delicious nachos. Salad was also great. Would go back.

My teen daughter and I had a very nice lunch here. We ate in a lovely and relaxing courtyard. Also love their mission - according to the owner - to help "create the Guatemalan dream." Lots of cool murals, a shop, and yoga classes on...More

Great food selections with Willy: the best chef in Xela. This is for the progressives out there who want to support the native Mayans in their drive for political awareness. Basic Guatemalan fare prepared perfectly.

Great food and service. The space is beautiful and covered in colorful murals. The courtyard is lovely. The backstory of this business is inspiring--the restaurant trains persons who have been deported back to Guatemala in the culinary arts.

Nice presentations of quasi-typical guatemalen plates, and some not so typical. I'd try anything on the menu. Relax, enjoy your meal with a Gallo beer and you'll be fine. Since it's a cooperative, I feel even better about dining here, or simply having a good...More
