Disappointed by our lunch here. Service was indifferent. Food was poor, nachos covered in unpleasant processed cheese sauce, sandwich was ok. Food was generally cheap and easily produced, not restaurant quality. A shame as the location and building are really nice.

We stopped in after this restaurant was recommended to us by the proprietress of the hotel at which we had stayed in El Relate before proceeding to Flores. The view of the lake and lake breezes were the high point. The menu is mainly burgers and burritos, however it offered a few almost traditional Guatemalan dishes, all grilled items. The... More

Our breakfast was good but not fantastic. The staff might be a bit more friendly. The view was amazing and we enjoyed it.

A lovely setting on the waterfront and decent food and drinks. We had mojitos and although they weren't on the menu this wasn't an issue, also a bargain at 25Q for two!

This small restaurant is right on the water. I had breakfast here - a very healthy breakfast with lots of fruit and yoghurt and a great cappuccino coffee. The view over the lake is magnificent, and there are lots of water birds that come up to the wharf outside.

Nice space on the lake with a dock extending into the lake. Nice staff. They have an espresso machine. Hence the coffee is good. A big help for the morning dose of a reasonably good coffee. They have free wifi.

Wifi does not work. Cheese quesadilla is good. Smoothie is very good. Service is okay but View is best.

What attracted us the most was the view since it is right in front of the lake. The food was good so overall it was a great place
