“Excellent quality typical food, good service”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Little pricey for local cuisine, but it is a formal restaurant serving the Typical Guatemalan food, and not street food, or a stand. Great fresh tortillas, and the quality/taste of the dishes was excellent! If weather is hot, it is small sometimes when its full and packed, and since theres no A/C or heavy fans, can get quite uncomfortable in the area.

“Great Service and Great food!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I definitely recommend this restaurant, the food is delicious, great service and atmosphere! You have to try Kack-ik, Suban-ik, the beef is a great one, and the desserts like platanos en mole!

“At the heart of the historical downtown, with fresh handmade Tortillas!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Lovely Mayan Lady making fresh handmade tortillas, her happy clapping hands announce as you enter a banquet of authentic Guatemalan recepies, from ancient maya traditional to Typical spanish influenced ones. My Friends and I enjoyed from Guacamole to Pepian and Mayan mole ( not the Mexican super hot an spicy... ) with this Fresh handmade tortillas. Dessert was also a true feast to our sweet tooth: chancletas of a local vegetable called guisquil...and RELLENITOS, wich are fried banana balls with sweet black beans... To help it come down, we enjoy a stroll on the recently renovated Main Plaza and La Sexta... Simply a great Lunch and pleasant afternoon!
