Great live music with decent Italian food. A little miffed as they charged extra for olive oil with the bread.

Circus Bar is still one of my best hang out in Panajachel. They have perfected their pizza's menu and the quality of the pizzas are fantastic. The menu also includes other dishes. Excellent drinks menu also. I like the Micheladas a speciality of preparing a beer not well known. And the different bands playing on the week end give it a bohemian ambiance tainted with latin spices.

Circus Bar is funky and comfortable, with a great collection of circus-themed posters and memorabilia. We had the pizza, which was very good - thinnish crust, good cheese, ample for two. It was a rainy night and the room felt cozy and welcoming. About 7 p.m., an excellent band came on and performed jazzy ballads - vocalist, bass, guitar and percussion, but at volumes that worked in the room. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Pana.

It was a suprise to find such excellent entertainment in Pana. The piano is out of tune, but that made no difference to the quality of the voice that was playing and singing. We had a wondeful time and look forward to returning soon.

Living in the Chicago area, I believe myself to be a bit of a pizza snob. Much to my suprise I really enjoyed the pizza here. We had the Rene pizza which come with ground beef, mushrooms and jalapenos. The crust was light and flakey and the ingredients tasted really fresh. Also we enjoyed the live music as well. Can be very crowded and difficult to get a table. We happened to arrive about five minutes before they really got busy.
