I had the blanco at this restaurant. It was absolutely fantastic! I am from a small fiahijg village in the Caribbean and I must say this is one of the best prepared fishes I have had!

With chilled vibes to boot and a decent seating area overlooking the lake, we really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was of a decent size and altogether very tasty (Garafuna salad, burrito and burger], and also reasonably priced for the quality and quantity. The staff were speedy and super friendly. Worth a try if you are looking for good... More

It's a very nice place especially at sunset. I have been there twice and the food has been excellent. It's an amazing place to see how the sun gets hide beyond the lake while you drink some red wine. The waitresses speak some english and that's very helpful if you don't speak spanish. You should go there!!

Great location (view wise and proximity to most hostels), food was delicious, probably the best we had in Guatamala so far.. service was excellent, and we were offered a mosquito repellent during the meal (though there weren't much bugs around). Prices are higher the most places, but you definitely get what you pay for :)

We ate here a few times over a couple weeks when working out of the Flores area. The food and service were really good. The owner is a fun and interesting guy, and we got to know him a bit over the course of our stay.

Some of the better food we had in Flores, a little bit higher prices but worth the extra couple Q. Had the delicious nachos, a chicken burrito and happy hour Cuba libres!!

I had dinner here with friends on my first night in Flores. The restaurant is on the lake and has a pleasant view. The starter of Nachos was good and a large portion that four of us shared. I had the barbecue burger that was made just as I asked. My friends had a huge plate of meats and salads.... More

We came here one night to have dinner, but we decided to go to another place as the menu is very limited, only snacks or very expensive main courses. We came back another night for drinks and shared the nachos deluxe. We left half (even though we shared) as the nachos was really bad. Soaked in a bad cheese sauce... More

How this place got to number one I'll never know, firstly the menu is super limited. For a 'number one' restaurant I thought there would be a nice selection however it only really basic items. I ordered chicken cantaloupe which I could hardly taste as the salad was doused in vinegar.. My partner ordered nachos which I must say, any... More

We had lunch here, pasta for me and a burrito for my BF. The service was very friendly and the food was good quality. You can definitely get cheaper food elsewhere, but this place seemed really clean. It would be a good place for a nice dinner out.
