Most interesting menu in town! Great fresh mint tea, thoughtfully-prepared food. Saturdays are best because during the week, the lake-view palapas are used by the Spanish school, but on Saturdays they're available to diners. The staff is super friendly and I'm gazing out at an...More

The Café is actually part of the San Pedro Spanish School. Every afternoon I would study here and have a snack. The nachos con guacamole is a favorite. The ladies cook your food right there and it fresh and tasty. I also recommend the Churassco,...More

Great smoothies, pasta, quesadillas, and vegan options available. Sit in the garden, inside or on the terrace.

Recommended by a friend, I went to this restaurant. Quiet, peacefull and easy to find, is a good option to skip the noisy-party environment that you find in San Pedro. The meat was really tasty and well cooked, so i would probably go back again

What a cool place in this Mayan village - and the food is yummy and very flavorful. My favorite spot in SP. The owners are from San Francisco and clearly have an eye for design - pleasing to the eyes. Go.

I loved my trip to Guatemala - especially Lake Atitlan - but the food was often a low-light. I left many meals feeling sick or unsatisfied. Then I had brunch at Cafe La Puerta and I wanted to have every meal for the rest of...More
