Enhanced an already memorable trip to Guatemala even more. Owners are truly gifted and exceptional people. Their passion for food was exemplified with every new course we tried. We look forward to our next culinary adventure!

We really enjoyed the food here. The steak was honestly out of this world. The eggplant is also very delicious. Good mix of locals, expats, and tourists.

Wonderful food and service. The meals always have a special twist that adds a Guatemalan flair with the traditional Japanese cuisine. We have never been disappointed.

Description
Izakaya is a Japanese Sake Establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. Enticing Oriental Appetizers with a tropical twist, creating a fusion between guatemalan and asian flavors. Fine cuisine prepared in an open kitchen, by reknown chefs with an international trajectory, which includes Nobu, Zuma & Gordon Ramsay in London. Cozy atmosphere and great music.
