“The best restaurant in San Marcos”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

This is by far the best place in San Marcos - amazing food, spectacular drinks and people that you end up never wanting to say goodbye to! The best part it that there is a different menu every night so you never get sick of things. Also, chat with Brad the owner about his guided hikes and cooking classes.

“tex mex night and margaritas = bliss”
Reviewed 12 May 2011

The food, atmosphere, and margs were great... the bartender/ mesero/ owner? was super nice and attentive. And much too modest about his speciality drinks. :) I left with a happy belly and spirit.

“Absolutely spectacular!”
Reviewed 31 March 2011

The stellar vibe, people, food, quality, creativity combine to make this place an absolute gem. Don't think twice about coming here. Though reader beware: after vising San Marcos and Ganesh, you'll think twice about going back home.

Brad and the folks at Ganesh are fabulous people who know what hospitality is all about. Three cheers for such a great place!

“Different every day but always good”
Reviewed 28 March 2011

They're cooking good things at Ganesh, with menus and cooks that change daily. Not strictly vegetarian but lots of vegetarian/vegan options. They also have a large cocktail menu and reasonable prices.

“Best restaurant on Lake Atitlan”
Reviewed 26 March 2011

I liked Ganesh for a bunch of reasons. The menu is changed daily (yes) and always obvioulsy fresh and creative. The food is excellent, and the atmoshpere casual and fun.

The drink menu is also noteworthy, and charming Brad behind the bar will take good care of you I'm sure, try one of the tequilla concoctions that are the best I have had, and alone worth a trip out for.

They also have live music and theme nights, and I don't hesitate in giving this place a high recommendation.
