This was our last night in Guatemala, and this restaurant was an excellent choice. They have a nice mix of western, Latin American and local dishes. We sat out on the porch with a great view of the waterfront. The service was really impressive. I...More

Literally what the title says. I went there while traveling with a friend (awhile back, but it was so good I NEED to reminisce here), and desperately wanted something better than the local bar food and my stomach needed a break from grilled meats. Enter...More

Excellent location looking out on lake Petzen Iza, though a little noisy/fume if there's a lot of traffic on the road below. Fans to keep you cool and a good range of dishes on the menu using local ingredients. Service good too. Recommend.
