Well, the views of Lake Atitlan from here are amazing, and the place has a nice ambiance. That's about where it ends. For Guatemala, this restaurant is hella expensive and they have the most bizarre timings for food. Apparently at 1 pm they do not...More

The view was amazing! The food was pretty good but the cheeseburger for kids was terrible. I can't say I would go back. There was a dog that stayed nearby our table (we sat all the way in the back closest to the lake) and...More

Don't go. Pros: Great view of the lake and the burger was pretty good. Cons: dishonest wait staff (deliberately overcharged, was reluctant to give the bill at all), overpriced, uninterested service, and we were constantly distracted by merchants and stray dogs entering the restaurant.

Great view, I will never eat there again. Food is terrible, staff is slow, slow, slow. No one appears to be in control. Hard to get s glass of water.

Came here for dinner one night but actually left before ordering anything. It was 7 o'clock at night and there was nobody else in the restaurant which should've been a good indication. When we got the menu I were shocked at how expensive it was....More

be sure and go at 6 pm for wonderful sunsets. The food was OK but I only ordered a sandwich which was tasty. The service was a little slow but not as bad as next door at the Catamaran.
