“must for meat lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

This small restaurant right on the main shopping street in Pana offers lots of good and economic options in meat. Prepared Argentina style, they serve their meats from a charcoal grill and with a delicious chimichurri sauce. What I especially appreciate is that they don't forget about the side dishes, even though meat is the main thing. Each main course is served with big portions of well prepared fresh veggies. The french fries are pretty good also. For the smaller appetite the sandwiches are delicious too.
If you don't want to be bothered by vendors selling their handicraft products take a table in the back of the restaurant.

“good meat on a budget ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

nothing out of this world but really good meat. It was very tender and flavorful. The meat was very thin dough, so if you like it medium raw you would probably get it a little bit more well done that you expected. But overall good and fast service.

“Good food at a bit expensive cost”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

The restaurant is located on the main street of Panajachel. It looks clean and it serves Uruguayan dishes (steaks) and very tasty soups. The dish is rich and service is good.

“Overpriced for the food quality but good service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

I orderd the Filet Mignion which turned out not to be a filet/lomito but just a regular low end cut bistek. Tastewise it was ok for what it was, but totally overpriced for you you get. My wife got a burger - and sick the next day. I'd rather give it a miss next time, although the service was very attentive and nice.
