We stopped by Hotel Atitlan on the way back from the Reserva. We were not staying at the hotel, but we asked the guard at the gate if we could go in for lunch, he called up to the hotel and then let us in. We sat on the patio with a stunning view of the ground and the lake.... More

Beautiful grounds and comfortable room but the food is below average for this price of hotel. the bar is chaotic, one person serving with coach loads arriving. Very high prices for wine and very small measures. Needs to improve food and service to qualify for the 4 star rating.

As with most guests, the al fresco lunch and stunning view ticked a lot of boxes! It was a treat to be able to visit, enjoy the food, wander round the gardens and dream of coming here to stay for full-on R&R (pool, treatments, books, respite from the real world etc). The lunch was very good, featuring fresh local fish... More

The restaurant itself is good, but not extraordinary - although breakfast was great. The best thing about it is the view, which is simply breathtaking.

What the guide books failed to mention is they charge 75 quetzals each just to enter. Then they discount it off your bill? I was a little confused on this business model. So I can't speak on the food but just be warned you might get charged a tourist tax just to enter.

The restaurant is lovely with a marvelous lake Atitlan view. Service was excellent. We ordered Mohito, chicken soup and chicken fajitas. All were more than excellent. The gardens entrance fee was deducted from the bill. Very highly recommended.

This restaurant has many Maya's symbols and pieces of art. The images have part of Maya culture in its colors, fabrics and animals. The food is delicious with fish options (like robalo with cilantro), pastas (with green sauce, champignonse, and pollo) or salads with aguacate (different sweeter avocado)

We lived in Panajachel four years, and this was our favorite 'go-to' place to take visitors. The absolute best is the view... open-air dining (NEVER too hot or cold, please believe me) and the view overlooks gardens and a pool... and the lake with volcanoes in the distance. Gorgeous. The food is very good - I usually like the spinach... More

We had 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts in this restaurant. Lots of variety on the menu. We ate out on the terrace outside...oh my...what a view of the lake and volcanoes. The service was the best we had in Guatemala and outstanding coffee. Love it.
