Very good service on a busy night. Traditional meals well prepared and perfectly cooked - visited by Bill Clinton some years ago!

“Please stop cooking the steak!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Ate here last night. The place is good and centrally located. Ordered the steak, which could have been amazing. However despite my best attempts at mental telepathy to get the chef to take the medium rare steak off - it came out very well done (overcooked) and overseasoned.

Only for those who have better mental telepathy than me!

“attractive restaurant, OK food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant itself looks quite attractive, in an old world sort of way. The food, though, was just OK. We tried some dishes listed as typical Guatemalan food -- a stuffed pepper, a tamale, and some sort of assorted meat in a banana leaf thing. All were just OK -- not bad, but not great. Prices and service were just OK too. So, all in all, a restaurant experience that was just OK.

Great decor, cozy and elegant with excellent staff. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful dinner! The chicken soup (with rice) is amazing.
