Rolson's is a Mexican restaurant that is situated high enough to look over the lights of San Ignacio and Santa Elena at night. The food and service is very good and the atmosphere is relaxing. We have often taken visitors there.

We went to this restaurant as my wife was craving for some taco like food, really glad we came across this place. My wife was pleased with her tacos and I had the Chimichanga, both of us where happy and licking fingers afterwards. Apparently it is also a hotel, even if its not in the central area looks like a...

I have eaten here on two occasions, and both times, either the order was wrong or the food was cold when it arrived, only to be sent back to a microwave. The drink prices are also off the charts. Don't bother eating here.

We enjoyed our evening meal at Rolson's. We were given a table looking over the balcony which felt very nice. The menu pricing was average and local good food. Service was very quick and staff exemplary. We had a variety of items from the menu and portion sizes were good and the food was very nice. Thank you

This is located on the second floor a little out of town but worth the trip. You can eat inside or out on the veranda with a high view of the town of San Ignacio.

After trekking through the jungle (to Tikal), we decided to eat at Rolson's. Not only were they offering a 1/2 off margaritas for happy hour, they had a good selection for food. You can decide if you want a pricier meal or something more toned down. I grabbed three tacos for under $10USD and was stuffed! On the flip side... More

I have such a hard time finding places to eat in the area that I haven't been to a million times and I just came across Rolson's. It's a little bit pricey but the servers are always super nice and accomodating. I've eaten here a lot recently and I only had one dissapointing experience where I received a different item... More

We ate dinner here with friends who live in the area. We had nachos, burritos and a combination plate. Our friends had alcoholic drinks which were outrageously priced - $25 BZ for two gin and tonics and $9 for a plain rum with no mix. This is crazy - these are North American prices. Considering what we paid for dinner,... More
