I've been coming here for years. The food isn't spectacular, so don't come here for the food, but don't miss out on the view out in the patio. Have a drink, and head out for food somewhere else"!

Of course sunsets over an incredible vista. Great staff, live music, very good food, Mexican, as well as local choices. Simple and tasty

We had dinner and listened to a very good band playing spanish tunes. Nice time while watching the sunset over the lake.

Great place to have sun set view. That's what they mainly offer. 해질녁에 가기 좋은 곳. 그런데 일손은 항상 부족해보이고 음식맛도 별로인지라 다른 때 방문하시는 건 삼가함이 좋을 것 같아요. 노을도 여기서 보는 것이 편안한 것이지 다른곳에서도 충분히 볼수 있습니다.

Go here to watch sunset over some cold beers but I wouldn't eat here. The food was mediocre. Cocktail was ok but rather small. They have live music here.

They have the name right. The only reason to go here is for the sunsets. We had an absolutely awesome one the evening we were here...so that lived up to the name. The service was just OK and same with the food...which was slow to...More

Popped in for a quick G&T at sunset (funnily enough) and it was perfectly nice, definitely a great location.

Our family enjoyed an evening of live music, good food and drinks here while looking out at the beautiful lake views. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere.

The Sunset Cafe is one of the most popular restaurants in Panajachel at the end of the main street over looking Lake Atitlan. It is perhaps the most well known restaurant in the town and I'm surprised it isn't on TA.
