This place has probably the nicest view of Guatemala City. Here for a lunch meeting, the service is very good and the steaks delicious.

View was why we originally decided to go to this restaurant, as on a clear day you can see forever. We went right before sunset so that we could see both day and night. Started with shrimp and butternut squash soup, and both were excellent. Great flavors and the shrimp was perfectly cooked. My husband, a huge carnivore, declared the... More

We were looking for another restaurant but couldn't find it. We had given up and just then went by El Portal del Angel. I remember it a little from Trip Adviser reviews, so we went in. It turned out to be a pleasure trip. The decor was interesting for a start. The menu was extensive and went from hamburgers to... More

We had Spinach Malfatti as entre; maybe too much sauce nevertheless the sauce was more tasty than malfatti itself. As main course, short ribs was the option. But it was not so good due to two reasons: 1) the pieces were the most thin I ever had in my lifetime, and 2) the meat was a bit harder even it... More

Stayed at Hotel Fontabella the last couple of times in Guate and I have eaten a few meals here. The dinner on this last trip was fantastic! My wife and I both ordered from the grill menu and our steaks were perfect. The vegetables were done on the grill, as well, and tasted fantastic. The staff were perfect. I marked... More

The food is good at this well-known steak place in Guatemala City, but customer service was rather lousy. My 'bife the chorizo’ was good, and the 'espinacas a la crema' were just delicious. But we never actually felt welcome. Although our waiter was particularly slow himself (and that on a slow night, when the restaurant was almost empty), as their... More

All was great! After dinner I suggest to have a good wine of whiskey and enjoy the view of the city- it becomes just perfect, tranquility is another of the characteristic I enjoyed here. Will come again? Yes, I will do it many times even alone if possible, it makes me analyze wonders of life.

I have been to a few steakhouse in Guatemala City. I think that El portal del Angel is the best steakhouse in Central America and has Wonderful view and the service is incredible!
