Reviewed September 27, 2013

Jose Pinguino's was a great place to go. They served us excellent food and the presentation about the history of the Maya was awesome!

Unfortunately we missed the nights there is a marimba band. Check first. Local crowd, simple setting - the price is right!

“Great food but”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

I enjoyed eating there twice. Look for the budget menu for great deals. My only gripe is that my meal was 35 Quetzales while I was charged 20 Q for the lemonade. Go figure!

“Relaxing evening with wonderful food and entertainment”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The owner of the restaurant treats his patrons like guests in his home. His daughters display amazing musical talent. It is the perfect accompaniment to one of the best meals I've had.
