This excellent restaurant, located in the centre of Quetzaltenango, provides a romantic and warm environment to enjoy their fantastic tapas. We had a good red housewine to go with the "Lomo de Res Lisboa", pieces of tenderloin with a spectacular red wine and goat cheese sauce, and the "Gyros", pork with a greek flavor and a delicious garlic sauce. Both served with ample warm bread. A nice white wine was the perfect accompaniment to the seafood tapas: The "Camarones Karides", shrimp with mozarella cheese and tomatosauce served straight out of the oven - the kind of plate that will make you come back to this restaurant - and a superior salmon carpaccio. Food of this quality and taste is not easy to find in Guatemala and this combined with a good and friendly service and a very affordablke prize makes this my favorite restaurant in Guatemala.

top top top quality food. If your in Xela then definitely get yourself along to this place for a meal. Between myself and friend I was with we ordered four different tapas dishes, all of which were absolutely excellent and cooked to perfection. Not only was the food top quality but the prices were very reasonable and the service was great

The center of Xela is an interesting place, and one of the gems that's tucked in there is Passage Mediterraneo. The ambiance is fine and fun. The service was fast. But best of all: the food was absolutely delicious. My group split a handful of tapas, and each time a new plate came to the table we were enraptured anew. Every tapas plate we had was excellent. Everything was overflowing with garlic and cheese. It was so, so good! Plus, the beauty of tapas is that if you split the plates up, the meal is actually very reasonably priced. Please, do your tongue a favor and stop at Passage Mediterraneo when you're in Xela.
