“Great concept”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Really great concept for the city. A selection of wine
thats as large as I have seen in the city. Wines from
many many countries.

Great tapas to nibble on because in the end we were there
first and foremost for the wine.

Located in the heart of the hotel district its not too hard to
find.

Service is great too.

“Wine, tapas, friends.”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

I visited this great wine bar with a local from Guatemala City. The theme is to try a few different wines from one region of the world and then choose food accordingly. They offer a large selection of wines and a friendly staff who happily provide samples to help you choose. We ended up drinking two bottles of a tasty red and ordered a few tapas style food; shrimp, hummus with a large basket of breads and olives with seasoned oil. The portions are good sized for the price. As a tourist, I wanted photos to remember my trip by...and our server even took tons of pictures for us!! What a fun night!!

“Great night out; possible to avoid gluten and still eat well.”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

After a long three day working trip to a hot, dry town in the eastern part of Guatemala,Vinoteca Flights was a welcome luxury. I love wine and go to tastings whenever I get the opportunity in my travels, and although I'm no expert, I have been known to get up after an intercontinental flight and travel two hours to a wine fair. Vinoteca has a fabulous selection, ranging in price from reasonable to more than this wine lover was comfortable paying, although we did order the most expensive flight on the menu which was very reasonable. The staff were clearly well trained in matching food choices with your selections. Try the desert wines with their creme brulee! My one complaint, as with most wine bars, the food was terrific but the portions could be more generous. If you can't eat gluten be sure to ask what they are thickening their sauces with. There are a handful of dishes on the menu that look alright for a gluten restricted diet, which is a good thing because salad and three glases of wine are never a good idea no matter how close your hotel is. On that note, after 9:00 p.m. take a cab even if you are a few blocks away.

“If you love wine...this is the place!”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

FLIGHTS means you can taste different wines from different countries by having 3 glasses put in front of you and each glass will have a different wine from choices you made. The selections are tremendous! They also serve food and the menu will match the food to your flight. They have several nitrogen bars. Excellent service.
