Located on a high terrace, you can enjoy the fresh air and nice view of Gracias. The food is authentic Honduran cooking at very accesible prices.

I have eaten at Guancascos several times, and the food is always great, as well as the service. The restaurant looks out over the city of Gracias and has beautiful views. There is also a hotel attached that I recommend staying at. The rooms are always clean and the grounds are safe and beautiful.

Place is very nice and has an amazing home feeling. Service is very ver great! Loved the attention and really good care people have for customers here. The cooking could be improved though... But I guess you'll just have to know what to choose. Because we tried a few dishes and some of them were good, some others... Not so... More

If you're staying in Guancascos Hotel, you should definitely try the traditional Honduran breakfast here! It delicious and you could also enjoy a very nice view of the town and hills around.

By January I visited Gracias again, I used to visit and stayed at different hotels (by work reasons), now with my three kids Guancasco was the best option, amazing view traditional local construction and the nature around the hotel. Food was according to my needs and service is fantastic.

I had breakfast here a few times and dinner here once. The food waw always quickly delivered and the breakfast of fruit, granola and youghart was good. My dinner was a little disappointing as there was more bone than meat in my chuleta, but all good. Prices were reasonable for the location and setting.

The menu is eclectic. Our group of 12 had a wide variety of dishes and all were pronounced "very good". Frone, the owner, is fluent in English; there is a poster/directory of tourism activities in/around Gracias that she can help you with scheduling/booking. We toured the grounds. I'd definitely eat here again, and would consider staying at the hotel.

Very good food and reasonably priced. Open air patio with a great view of the city. Awesome coffee for 20 lemps a cup which is about a dollar. Moderate selection of liquor and beer. The local food was better than the american type of food but in another country it's better to experience the local type of food.

I had several breakfasts and light dinners at Guancascos and was happy with the freshness, choice and taste of everything I ate. Not a lot of vegan choices but staff was very accommodating and arranged to prepare a tomato vegan sauce for my pasta for instance. Great smoothies and great view on the city.
