“cosy, invisible, tipical and cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

if your are a bagpack traveler you must stop by here for the lunch or dinner. the owner is an old women with no age, the food is tipical, well served and tasty (no need to have a strong stomack) the place needs some refreshing but it is also part of its asset. defemitely cheap you will love this apart from the touristic place fonda.

“Excellant value for home cooked guatemalan cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This place is just across from the La Merced church a real hole in the wall. The home cooking was excellant, it cost us 45Q each with drinks. A great place to get a good home cooked Guatemalan meal.Great value for the money.

“6a Avenida Norte #43”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

The address is incomplete, so it just sends you to where the street changes from North to South, which is about 2 blocks south of where the restaurant is. You have to go through a small tienda to enter the restaurant.
The food is simple, but excellent, the family is incredibly welcoming, and the price is right.

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

This place is great. Cheap, and the food is delicious. It's an awesome atmosphere to sit and watch the women prepare the meals, and get to enjoy home cooked food.

“Rip off the gringos”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

While the pipian was very good, frijoles were cold and burned. The Mayan family sitting next to us was shocked when the señora presented our bill. Not that it was expensive, but charging 30 % more to us gringos was out of line and the price was no bargain compared to other simple places in town. Surprised that this was a top pick in lonely planet. There are other places frequented by locals that are better for the money and clean.
