Went here two times during my six days stay in Xela. The food was so good we had to go back, really tasty.We had different dishes, but they were all great. It´s cheep in Norwegian standards, but a bit pricy in Guatemala, but absolutely worth it.

Who would have believed that you had to come to Xela for great Greek food. Four of us shared the vegetarian combo plate. Good way to sample many different dishes. More than enough food. Others in our party were equally pleased with their shrimp and chicken dishes. Convenient, right off the main square. Can't go wrong.

Pleasant restaurant, good food and service, nice atmosphere. Be aware that in Guatemala tapas are served on dinner plates and one per person is enough

a restaurant located in a big passage with over 10 etablishiments the food comes in small portions and are served with loads of bread.. to get your belly stuffed you need to order at least 3 tapas dishes with ends up that it's not that cheap in the end.. thequality was average... smoked salmon needs some upgrade to european standarts..

El Passage Mediterraneo is by far the best restaurant in Xela and not simply for the food (though it is amazingly delicious), but for a multitude of reasons. The ambiance is warm and inviting, the owners dedicated, creative and innovative with their culinary creations, and the prices more than reasonable. Be certain to try to Moussaka and the Dolmas, but... More

Longtime residents Jeremy and Magdalena have done Xela a great service by bringing us high-quality Mediterranean cuisine at a reasonable cost. I go there when I have company in town or when I want to impress a special lady. My favorite is the Torta Española. I have also enjoyed Dolmathes, Gyros, and Moussaka.

really great food. It's tapas style, so it can get a bit pricey. Definitely get the dates wrapped in bacon if you go. The cocktails weren't very good - although my margarita on the rocks was pretty decent.
