I really don't understand why I came here. I was looking on TripAdvisor the best places to go and wanted to try the number 1 but got disappointed on what they offer and especially on their prices that are not justified at all. You can go to any other restaurant and pay half the price, it will be just as... More

Yes, we can only agree with all those great reviews - we had the white fish, local specialty, absolutely fantastic! The French fries that came with it were delicious and crispy, and the medium portion of fish is quite large, indeed we shared it in 2. We loved the personal touch and little chat with the owner. Staff speaks English!... More

My friends had the steak and I had the burger and fries. Everything was perfect and the service was warm, friendly and genuine. So glad we found this gem in Flores

The restaurant looks out on the lake so the view is good. The ambience is pleasant and to my surprise the service was good. The real reason I go out to eat is for the food. The local lake fish was very good, very well prepared and very well seasoned and the fries were terrific. The reader should be forewarned... More

The service we have had was great and the food delicious. The price could have been a bit cheaper but it was worth. Next to our drinks we received purified water for free (was offered us by the boss). And try the french fries. They are the best I have eaten in the last few years.

I have eaten there twice - June and October, 2016. The local fish is fantastic. The service is great and the staff a lot of fun. Good drinks, too. It is very peaceful and offers a beautiful view of the lake. It's right along the boardwalk by the lake.

Good fish. Nice service. Good pasta. Nice little housecat. Nice view of the lake. Good portions. That's all I guess.

The place is fine. They serve a white kind of fish that you can only get in Peten and I have to say they prepare it very well. We did have to wait way too long to get served but the taste made up for it. You have to try this fish.

If you cherish great food freshly prepared you are in for a treat. The quality shows in the details. Self-made French Fries, perfectly fried, with interesting spices. Freshly prepared Guacamole with a twist of lime. They go together well with your Nachos. A wonderful Garifuna Salad freshly prepared from carrots, Cole slaw, Ananas and raisins. And a local Blanco fish... More

We've stopped here for dinner which was absolutely fantastic! It was the best falafel burger I've ever had! Nice and simple menu with a great view of the lake. And a service with a smile!
