Description: The Sunset Cafe is one of the most popular restaurants in Panajachel at the end of the main street over looking Lake Atitlan. It is perhaps the most well known restaurant in the town and I'm surprised it isn't on TA.

Despite the amazing view of the volcano and beautiful Lake Atitlan, our party of three ordered fish, shrimp fajitas and a hamburger and none of us enjoyed our meals. The shrimp were so tiny they were non-existant and the hamburger was mixed with an identifiable green substance and came with a few cold French Fries. Based on our experience, I'd return for drinks and the incredible view (the candles on the table are a very nice touch ) but eat elsewhere.

We only had drinks there and watched the sunset. Well worth the price….a gorgeous spot not to be missed.

you can;t beat the location. The food is really quite tasty especially the chile rellenos. The drinks though are a bit steep. Of course, this is the top place to have happy hour. The views are unbelievable.

Restaurant overlooks the beautiful lake. Open air dining, so bring a jacket in the evening. I had fajitas. Very good. The entertainment here can be a bit cheesy. We had two guys singing to background track off of an iMac. Great evening, though.

Came here for a drink and snack most evenings. Took lots of great pictures and saw the village go by. There was an upbeat atmosphere and good service.
