This place is usually empty as the tourist generally stay close to the lake's edge. That is an advantage. The food is good, esp the hamburgers and the pork chop.

I visited Achiote recently to have lunch with a colleague and had a great experience overall. The restaurant is nicely decorated with local elements, but with a keen eye for colors and contrasts. Yes, the ambience is very nice and Achiote really stands out among other restaurants in the Flores island. But you will be gladly surprised at how nice, courteous and attentive the staff is. The waiters really make you feel welcome. And you will definitely love the food! It is great! Plates are presented nicely and reasonably priced. If you visit Flores, you can't miss Achiote.

Went to this restaurant last night for the first time. Flores has a lot of great restaurants but this one is definitely up there as one of the best. The food was delicious and the decor is beautifully done, perfect environment to eat food and relax. The service was also excellent, the staff are very attentive.
I think a lot of people miss Achiote as its not on the main road with the rest of the restaurants which is a real shame, it's definitely worth seeking out.

I have really loved the food of the Achiote, the hamburguers and salads were delicious and the price was great. ¡The Atmosphere was confortable and relaxing! In this place you can find local food and a variety of meals, I think Achiote is one of the greatest Restaurants of the Island!
