“Wonderful meal in a very pretty hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

The A/C dining room with the view was tempting but we ate late and the open courtyard beckoned. They have a decent selection of wines, efficient service and very tasty food. The three of us shared an appetizer platter that was varied and very good. We all enjoyed our main courses but mine - the rabbit - was declared the winner. Highly recommended - our best meal in El Salvador.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I don´t know if these is the best restaurant in Suchitoto, since I couldn´t try, them all, but definitely the high efficent a.c. in the place was like heaven after a super hot day at suchitoto.
Anyway, it is a bit pricy, compared to other places but food is good, waiters arent the best , they disappear and took a while to appear back again, the place is lovely, a must go if you are on the área. My overall experience was good.

“Best restaurant in Suchitoto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Spent 3 days in Suchitoto, so we obviously didn't try ALL the restaurants, but we were at half a dozen and checked out the atmosphere and menu at several others. Los Almendros wins hands down for best menu, best atmosphere, and having an actual wine list. We ate in the garden courtyard surrounded by interesting artifacts (such as the original bread oven for the house) and illuminated by dozens of candles. They also have a covered area by the hotel pool for more formal (white table clothes) covered dining. A few blocks north of the main square, no view, so if you want to see the action in Suchi (limited!) or have a view of the lago there's other choices.

Menu has some local specialties and some interesting interpretations of European dishes. Appetizers and meals were all delicious. Wine list was limited, but we found that in El Salvador you'd be lucky to find wine on the menu at all. Service was only average but that was not a big issue. They are not cheap, but deliver full value. Great break from pupusas if you want to splurge a bit!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local resident as the best in town and we think he was right. We asked TA to list the restaurant separately from the hotel of the same name just so it's clear that the restaurant welcomes everyone, not just guests at the hotel.
