Although food is very good, prices are a bit high. I had sea bass on a mustard seed sauce, no regrets at all!!! Their attention to detail is really commendable as is their table service. Pricy as it is, it is still makes for a fancy gourmet diner.

Beautiful restaurant...wonder food...such a wonderful day of gracias service and excellent cusine. The bread was delicious, the fries with my steak were some of the best I have had in all of Guatemala and steak was tender and flavorful. The food was graciously served in a beautiful location.

having a lot of good restaurants to choose from, Jean Francois is the clear misconception that price equals quality. the food is good but for that price you might as well dine somewhere else and overindulge your tongue. the same quality can be found in like 10 restaurants that will give you more bang for your buck.

The service here is impeccable, as you'd expect from a restaurant long patronized by the elite. The decor is Antigua-style colonial wiht modern comforts. The food is beautifully prepared. Desserts are limited. Most of the dining is under the arches of the outdoor patio in a beautifully landscaped courtyard.There is more parking than you might think, in a lot off... More

The food tries to be "international", maybe even "french". Of course it doesn't resemble french food in any way. However the place is lovely, and definitely one of the favorite choices of the well heeled of Guatemala City.

A traditional place where you will never be disappointed. Great environment, great food, great service and having the owner-chef come to your table is something to remember.
