I travel about 9 months every year but I rarely see restaurants of such a good quality and value as La Villa del Chef. Food is extraordinary tasty and the owner Nicholas (from Germany but he lived over a decade here) is very welcoming and always ready to entertain his guests and make sure everyone is happy. He has got... More

So delicious! Locally caught every morning from the lake right in front of your table. Comes in 3 sizes. The medium size at 140Q filled me up. The small size at 90Q would have probably satisfied me. The large one at 160Q could probably feed 2.

I ate here three times while I was in Flores, it was that good. The first time I had lunch - burger and fries. It was good. The fries were really good. I also ordered a strawberry blender drink and it was excellent. Just like a virgin daquiri. Really awesome. My second meal with the local white fish from the... More

What a place. Incredibly friendly staff and the German owner nick couldn't have made our evening any better. Really accommodating for a group of 18 and the food was unreeeeaaal! Try the mojitos too, they're the business!

We had a great evening enjoying the lake view, delicious food and drinks. The service is excellent. Falafel Burger is a superb choice for vegetarians.

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant during a trip to Flores as a resting point for a tour of Tikal. We like to look after ourselves with a nice meal occasionally, despite being backpackers on a budget. This place made the best food we've found to treat ourselves with in Central America and it was surprisingly reasonable in price... More

Had best Meal of our trip so far here and 3 weeks in. Food was excellent, we had the steak kebab and fish of the day. We loved it and hope to return. Service was excellent and found the owner had a great knowledge of the area. Thank you and good luck.

The mojito was ok, but the Daquiri was unfinishable - so, the waitress knocked it off the Bill. Appreciated of course, but although, food was not good. The sallad was just small and tasteless, the skewers were pricy but not worth the money. Any greek would have done it twice as good.. But cheaper! No, we are not coming back!

We arrived as a big group of 20 people but hadn't reserved anything. This was no problem at all for the staff and they immediately set out to accommodate us. The food tastes absolutely amazing and was of great quality. Absolutely recommendable.
