This attractive restaurant is open to the general public, not just those staying at the hotel. We ate there for lunch when we visited the gardens. Each of us tried a different salad, and all were delicious. The restaurant itself is attractive, but even better was the view of the lake and volcano.

We stopped by just for breakfast with friends before touring the gardens and the lake. Breakfast was delicious and made just for us. There were many items to choose from on the menu. We had yogurt and fruit. A milk shake was also offered and was perfect for breakfast. At our table there was a variety of items ordered. All were excellent in taste, not one complaint! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Always eager to help interpret our beginner's Spanish. Peaceful and beautiful from the time you walk in the area to the time you go out. Highly recommend.

This restaurant is arguably the best located restaurant in the world. The views are stunning. It's worth googling for pictures. The dining room overlooks the pool then the lake then two very impressive and very close cone volcanos. If you look carefully at the cliffs to your right (facing the lake), you can see two ziplines and you might even catch people riding them if you know where to look and are patient.
The food was excellent, a good value and was served by a competent friendly and English speaking server.
This is well worth the walk from town as it's very close maybe 20Q tuk tuk ride from the west side of town but walked it quickly and easily.

I came here from Laguna San Pedro on a day off by boat. The boat ride was very bumpy. After arriving by boat, we immediately came to the restaurant while we waited for our 2 hour massage appointment (which was worth every penny by the way! and very reasonable too!).

The restaurant has a wonderful view and a beautiful setting! Compared to the restaurants on the other side of the lake, this restaurant is fantastic. It is clean, has a wonderful wooden bar, and has a tremendous variety of alcoholic beverages with wonderful fresh fruits and a variety of rums, including the best and most flavorful rums from Guatemala and other local national rums from nearby countries.

The menu is small but has a wonderful variety of choices for both breakfast and lunch!

They have the best EMPANADAS that I have found in years! I absolutely love empanadas and these were delicious and very authentic: (they included currants, meats and potatoes; that is an authentic empanada!). They were fried to a crisp golden brown, were not soggy, and were perfect in every way. The presentation of the plate was colorful, and the service was excellent.

We were able to sit at the beautiful table and enjoy the view. The wait staff was excellent; we were not rushed or made to feel we were intruding.

Even though we were not registered guests in the hotel and there just for the day, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously.
