If you are visiting the ruins or just passing time on the island this is a great place to eat. The owner Luis will do whatever it takes to make you happy. The food is good and there is a great view of the lake.

My wife and I have been traveling for almost 6 weeks and were in search of a break from the typical street food meals. A local recommended this restaurant as a place that is good for fish caught from the lake. The restaurant overlooks the water, is very clean, and has a wonderful vibe on the outdoor deck with its...

The outdoor lakeside veranda at Restaurante Tipico Imperial in beautiful Flores was what attracted us in the beginning but it was uphill from there! The owner, Jose, welcomed us two nights in a row with open arms! The whitefish, steamed, was the most delicious I had ever tasted. Though prices are not the cheapest, it was well worth the value!

The happy hour sign on the sidewalk drew us in. If there was any liquor in the margarita or daquiri we ordered I would be shocked. Drinks had good flavor but we had to order and pay extra for a couple shots of booze to make our frozen drinks into adult beverages. Nice lake view, had some nachos, they were... More

Went a little off the beaten path and found a jewel. The waitress was not very polite dispute our brutal attempt to speak Spanish, the service was quick, and the place was spotless.

the hosts were very nice, the typical food was good value for money (meal+drink were less than 10 us) and they have a beautiful view on the lake even on a cloudy day.

Fijatas had a good amount of chicken, pepper and onion. Quite tasty. The ribs was less appealing, too much fat. Service good. Setting okay although sport on large TVs.

Tipico has a solid menu offering tasty food at a reasonable price. The service was great and the wonderful view out over the lake makes it a really nice place to come and relax over a meal. Recommended.

This charming café /restaurant overlooks the lake facing east. It'rather cheap, cheerful and plasticy but the Waitress was charming, the wine, although not on the drinks menu, good and inexpensive and the mixed local platter was plentiful and varied.
