“Average food but not cheap.”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Have been there 4-5 times on my 4-5 times in Guatemala but would not go again. For what you get it is not cheap nor is the food any good. Many things are pre cocked and not fresh and not hot. A plate of appetizers was $ 13,- You can get a " Steak " dinner for 2 for the same price 50 yards down on the same street.

“Excellent - better steak than the Argentinian steak restaurant next door and excellent service”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We have been to casa Chapina on a Sunday afternoon. The place had live music and the service was spectacular. The waiter suggested a BBQ plate to share and the meat was fantastic, better that the argentinean steakl restaurant next door. The Bill was, with tip and drinks included, 220 Q for 2 (roughly 70 dolars 2 person).

“Not that good”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Maybe I arrived to early for dinner...., the place was empty, and dark. Not the best beginning, but then I spotted a lovely woman making tortillas in a huge "comal" in the center of the room, I felt that I wanted to stay at the place. She was very nice and welcoming. Not the waiter. I asked him to explain for me the three Guatemala's dishes that they recommend...needless to explain that the conversation was in Spanish...I felt he was lazy, he just didn't care if I understood or not about the food. ( and I could talk to him in the same language! Imagine someone that doesn't know a word in Spanish!!).
The food was okay. Not more.
Just in front of this restaurant is Kakao, a very good and nice restaurant, in which I've eaten several times.
