What attracted us the most was the view since it is right in front of the lake. The food was good so overall it was a great place

Dona Goya was recommended to us for breakfast by our hotel's manager. It did NOT disappoint! The food was very affordable, sits immediately on the lake so it's nice and breezy, and is a delicious breakfast find!

We were there for on Breakfast and with a group. The breakfast omelet was ok as were the pancakes. The service was adequate but not quick.

My husband and I went here for a lunch and dinner during our time in Flores. Don Goya has a great patio on the lake. The atmosphere is comfy and relaxed as you soak in the breezes off the lake. The service from staff was great and the nachos were absolutely delicious.

Had a sandwich here and 1 sandwich would have fed the two of us. Large portions. Obviously offer a menu del dia that many local workmen were eating. Family run spot with a dock for boats to Hotel Bolontiku. Food was fresh and well prepared and presented.
