Reservations are not required. There are also several lunch options on our menu, served until 4pm. Dinner is a fixed menu, a typical Guatemalan special every evening with a meat and vegetarian option. Please make reservations before 4pm of the same day, dinner is served at 7pm.If you are headed to Tikal before we open for breakfast, we can prepare a box lunch for you. Rosita's famous desserts include chocolate cheesecake, apple pie, fried plantains with vanilla ice cream and guava pie made from fresh guavas in our garden. Among our selection of drinks you will find allspice tea, fresh-squeezed pink lemonade and depending on what’s in season, perhaps even Pitaya (Dragon fruit) juice. Enjoy a frozen margarita or piña colada while viewing the sunset from the veranda. The restaurant is open air, with a spectacular view of our garden and Lake Petén Itzá.

“Consistently good food”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

We ate at Don David four times during our stay in El Remate: one breakfast, two lunches, and one dinner. Everything we had was well above-average.

The setting is quite pretty, looking out over the grounds and the lake. Service was good, friendly, and prompt.

For dinner, you must make reservations, and there is a fixed menu which changes each night of the week.

Also appreciated was the front desk staff. Though we stayed elsewhere in town, they were more than willing to answer our questions. They even helped us print our boarding passes for a flight out of Flores.

Highly recommended.
