A great place to chill after a long day's work. There was live music, good beer, and a nice atmosphere to sit and relax. The food was good and service friendly. Liked it a lot.

The Sunset Cafe is one of the most popular restaurants in Panajachel at the end of the main street over looking Lake Atitlan. It is perhaps the most well known restaurant in the town and I'm surprised it isn't on TA.
