El Árbol is a great place for breakfast. Good service by staff and Javi, the owner. Local dishes like the Ramon pancakes, Ramon and potato bread, pepian and jocon are great! It’s a must during your trip at El Ramate. Highly recommended.

We came here several times to enjoy breakfast (ramon pancakes!), lunch (vegan curry) and dinner (pepian!). All of them were really tasty and fresh prepared. Many vegetarian options and lovely staff. We highly recommend this place!

We had a vegetarien curry and 2 typical Guatemalan stews (Jocón and Pepián served with salad and home-made bread and rice). All excellent. Also the Energia smoothy (milk, cacao, Ramón nut) was excellent. Gladly again.

The menu is quite basic and limited. The curry we had was tasty but there is not much choice. I would say it’s better than average but doesn’t reach very good rating for me.
