The view is amazing! We went at night. They have blankets but Xela gets cold at night. Inside is nice to, you can see the view through the windows but it would have been better outside. I'd recommend you either dress really warmly or go during the day. The lights of the city at night were spectacular! We had some... More

This restaurant is located on a hill and offers a great view over the city. The location exposes the terrace to cold winds, especially in the evening. It is advised to take some extra clothes (the restaurant offers blankets). Food is average, fairly priced.

We were there for lunch. They had some great licuados. Food was ok, but the view of Xela is what really makes this place!

We were here for a lunch after walking to the Cerro Quemado. Staff was friendly although at times not very responsive. The food was OK, however the view was the best part of this restaurant!

The service was probably the only thing lacking! Really fun experience, to sit with a blanket and watch the sun go down. I won't go back frequently but I definitely enjoyed my time there.

Great view, great food and drinks and a great service. If you visit Xela, Panorama is definitely a place to go.

I drove up but many walk! It is a fantastic view of Quetzaltenango! It has bith inside and out side seating. The food was okay but nothing outstanding! The service was fair! Bathrooms were clean! It is worth the trip just for the view!

We arrived at the restaurant, waited more than 15 minutes, I went to get the menu and ordered hot chocolate and chocolate fondue with fruit. The hot chocolate was chocolate powder that was not handmade, when Xela all serve traditional chocolate. The worst was part was the chocolate fondue with fruits of the season. Chocolate was Hershey's Chocolate Syrup chocolate... More

Great view of the city worth the vigorous walk up the hill. Chocolate fondue = chocolate syrup. Yuk! Food is average. Hot wine is super. I went with a group and we had lots of fun. It's an experience!

Start with the relaxing view.....with a Gallo. Then the menu...very good european fare. Loved the schnitzel. It came with potatos that were excellent. I was very full when I left. All for a great price with attentive service by the owner.
