“Always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

The nachos are insanely good appetizer, giant portion, especially for kids. In the evening, it's very romantic. My wife and I had our first date dinner here, so it's very special. The owner owns a KTM, so he has trip advice for that too

“Nice and casual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

We had a few drinks at the bar and then had some tacos. The food was good but nothing fancy. They have some specials on offer very day. You can sit out front or in the gardens out the back.

Service was fine and there is wifi.

There is also a travel agent which can sort out trips or shuttles various destinations such as Guatemala or to the hot springs near Copan.

“Simple food at a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

While in Copan for almost a week we enjoyed lunch at Via Via a few times. The food is not fancy, but is consistently good. The prices are extremely reasonable. The service was excellent and they accommodated requests to change items (i.e. switch out potatoes for veggies). The resident dogs are also very friendly, and the owners feed a number of street dogs, including a lovely local dalmatian. There is a large variety of drinks available at the bar, including wine and beer. The atmosphere is very relaxed whether you choose to sit indoors or out on the patio to watch daily life pass you by. WIFI is free. Via Via is also headquarters to a local travel agency that offers a variety of tours. If you are in Copan, make sure you stop by for lunch, dinner or a few beverages.

Don't miss it. This is the place where everyone goes and the manager, Ana Marie, is so friendly and wonderful. She welcomes you with open arms.
