This is a Guatemala city institution: very popular with the locals. Food is served in an attractive courtyard and is traditional cuisine from Coban, service is very good. a marimba, guitar, percussion ensemble play 1 to 3 pm daily and on friday evenings. a must visit venue in Guatemala city. Note that it is very common in Latin America for waiters to ask for the tip to be separate from the credit card bill. I know of several places where the owners (sometimes rich gringos) pocket all the tips for themselves. I don't know if this restaurant does that or not.

Restaurant is a quiet oasis in zone 1. Seems more for locals but tourists are welcome. Very inexpensive. Tables around a small interior garden make for a pleasant and restfull experience. No English menu but you can figure out what you want and a few of the waiters speak English so they can help. This restaurant was recommended by the staff at the Barcelo hotel when we asked for a local place with good food. They called for us and made reservations. Probably was not required as it was a slow night and service was slow.
