Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Woah. I was not expecting to find authentic, fantastic Israeli food in a small lakeside village in Guatemala! It was exactly like eating in Israel - the hummus was some of the best I’ve ever had - ethereally creamy, warm - and the pita was...fluffy, chewy and freshly baked. We loved the mushroom and onion topping. Their homemade challah was also excellent. Plus the view is stunning. A must stop!More

Oke food, nice view over the lake. We accidentally ordered 2 bottles of water instead of 1, but the waiter told us it couldn't be removed from our order and we had to pay for it. Not very customer friendly.

Grab brunch or coffee at Sababa Restaruant or their cafe in San Pedro La Laguna. You won't be disappointed and the lake side views are a big plus. I recommend the make your own milkshake and shakshuka.

We went for an early dinner at the restaurant and ordered : pasta salad, sncnitzel with rice as well as curry. All 3 dishes were a good sized portion, tasty, not oily, fresh ingredients and not too salty nor spicy. Sadly we didn't take photos...to show you. We went back for breakfast and had the egg shakshuka as well as their Sababa dish, both came with fresh bread. The egg shakshuka was super tasty but the Sababa, it came with a lot of little sides ,which was nice but j feel the tuna with curry didn't blend well with the rest of the sides (olives,cheese, avocado salad,tahini). In my opinion the sides were all too little, j would rather have just two sides but more quantity of each. Maybe we can choose the two main sides we want and get more quantity rather than being served smaller quantities of everything? Just a suggestion? In addition, I need to say that Their bakery was fantastic! The fresh croissants in the morning are to die for ... And their chocolate chip cookies melt in your mouth. Good coffee too and awesome views of the lake. Great vibes to work from there too!More

This place was packed, but they still served me fairly quickly. The shakshuka was delicious! The coffee was also good. Nice atmosphere. The view is spectacular!

This place looked super cute with an amazing view of the lake! But we couldn’t dine here because it was cash only. The menu looked great!

Staff was quite rude especially the women, very odd energy and they just seemed annoyed at anything we would ask them, the food was okay, pita bread was good and setting was original and cool.

Our favourite restaurant in San Pedro la Laguna. The view over lake atitlan is just stunning particularly if you can get one of the three tables on the upper floor. The food is Israeli themed. We had the shakshka which was a steel at 45Q...a pop. Delicious freshly cooked bread and tasty tomato base. Overall would recommend particularly for breakfast and/or lunchMore
