“Surprisingly very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

Our guide took us here. I was not exoecting much, but was pleasantly surprised by a very good meal. The margarite I ordered came frozen, and was one of the best I had in Guatemala. Both the fried shrimp, and the garlic grilled shrimp, came with the head still on, and were excellent. The fried shrimp had an extremely light breading, which showcased the shrimp. Many in my party hadthe local seafoid soup, and they all loved it.

“A Nice Little Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013

This restaurant tends to be over-looked, it seems, but it is a neat place for good food, including local favorites and American style. We actually had fried rice here, a generous portion and very tasty. The service is prompt and friendly. Located on the main road, it's a good place for lunch or dinner.
