The ambiance of the place goes with the food. Its usually really busy, so get there early to get a parking space and table. Although they have a small-ish menu, the food is great!! 1 order of bread is not enough!!

The restaurant has a very nice menu that includes mostly seafood and meat. The spanish flavor that the chef includes in every meal makes it a delightful lunch dinner. Having said that i am addicted to the land and sea plate that includes shrimps and sirloin in a garlic sauce that is great for dipping in bread.

One of the best places to eat. No surprises, food is always great. Ask for the surf and turf (mar you tierra) and you''ll get the best meat along with great shrimp with the classic garlic and olive oil mix that ssession this place appart. If you drain this down with a good Spanish wine, then you have reached heaven.... More

Whether Mikel or his son are at the grill, their food is always spot-on. Simple menu with crowd-pleasing dishes: the mero, shrimp, steak - all sumptuous! Super attentive staff and the best gin and tonics to be found in Guatemala City!

This restaurant is consistently excellent. Over a span of 15 years I have never had a bad meal. The grilled shrimp with garlic. mmmmmmmmy favorite. My wife likes the squid. The meat and fish are also good. If you are a vegetarian, go elsewhere.

A perfect place for lunch when visiting Guatemala City. As an American hosted by local businessmen, I can say it was terrific. Not what like you'd get at home -- which is the whole idea! -- with tasty and tender beef and spicy shrimp. Small plates to share around the table. Bread to soak up the sauces on the shrimp....
