ATMOSPHERE: Nice, well lit, fresh tortillas being made in the center of the dinning area, great latinoamericano music playing softly in the background. I like it.

FOOD: Their Chuchito is a great appetizer! Get it! I ordered the Típico with lomita...their fried tacos stuffed with chicken, that comes with the Típico, was a bit tough but tasted fine. The sausage has a very different texture and flavor than sausage in American or Europe, it wasn’t bad, just different. The steak was tender and good. The tortillas were excellent, especially with a little meat, grilled onions, and fried black beans. Rice and black beans were good, especially with their cream picante salsa...the creamy picante salsa has a bit of a kick, so if you don’t like spicy, avoid it. The red salsa is not spicy.

CONCLUSION: It’s good and authentic Guatemalan food, but nothing to write home about. I’m glad I ate here for my Guate food experience, now I can start exploring non-traditional Guatemalan restaurant.
Again, good place for the Guatemala experience.

Thank Tony B

Popped in here for almuerza on a Sunday afternoon...just before the place got packed. There is an excellent salad on the menu and the tamalitos and various sauces were fantastic. The size of the portions--of both the salad and the veggie-kebabs--was impressive and the dishes...delicious!
A lovely place to enjoy a leisurely lunch, and that lady pumping out the tortillas front and centre in a restaurant that might otherwise feel cavernous? Great idea. Great tortillas, too.

Wide variety on the menu. Good food, good portion size, and good service. Menu is in both Spanish and English but wait staff are not bilingual. Convenient location.

Our small tour group came here for a lunch included in the tour. We had small tasty tostada as appetizers, my main course selection of tilapia with rice and guacamole was excellent and the sugar-coated desert of fried plantain fruit filled with a bean past was good but quite filling. Overall, good service, elegant setting and good food.
