“The best food in Flores.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

Beautiful place to share some time with your friends, the food is very good. You can visit the restaurant with family or friends, is very nice. The lake is in front of you, so you have an amazing view of flores.

“Very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

Beautiful atmosphere and yummy mojitos. Service was also excellent. Somehow we kept getting attracted back to that place. There is also WiFi which is great. Fantastic view of the lake and very central. Thumbs up all the way.

Oliver2111, Manager at Restaurant La Villa del Chef, responded to this review, 27 July 2013
we experienced more movement than expected this very evening.
The time on your order shows that we reached peak during the time
your order came was taken. Your waiter admitted at our end of the night
review that he failed to submit your order to the kitchen right after
you had placed it. He feels very bad about that mistake and
I assure you Sir, that we are highly motivated to do the best possible.

In fact I do remember you, your wife and your two teenage kids.
I would have been able to do much more about this situation
given the chance you told me right at the moment I asked you how everything was.

We are glad that at least your wife and the kids enjoyed the burritos and
thank you Sir for your understanding, a busy night is full of challenges.

Thank you for coming, have a safe trip.

with kind regards

“Good looking and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

Ate here twice, reasonably priced and many choices. We ate the vegetarian burgers and the burrito. Both excellent. Portions are pretty large, people complaining about the crispy fries are just people that are used to Mcdonalds Frenc fries. These fries are one of the best I ate (and I am from Belgium), big slices with a crunch coating, not too salty at all.

Strawberry & blackberry frozen fruit shake was delicious. Staff was great, some were being trained and only spoke Spanish, but they were very friendly and service was pretty fast.

This is not a michelin star restaurant but a traveller star restaurant. If you eat outside during sunset there can be flies... like in every other spot outside on Flores.

“Yummy meal with an excellent view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

The food was wonderful and filling. The service was great and one of the owners stopped by our table to ensure everything was perfect. Beyond the expertly prepared food and great service the personal touch is what will make this stand out in our minds. They are involved in making the community better which was uplifting to see. If you are looking for a break and a few extra veggies this is the place to go.
