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.

Located in the island of Flores with beautiful views of the lake. Popular lakefront restaurant in the area. Rustic. With a variety of dishes from the region. Good service. Good prices per food quality.

The restaurant is right on the beachfront - saw only locals eating there. Very good Pasta Carbonara (Espagueti Carbonara) and wine. Much cheaper than other places.

Had breakfast here and we liked it so much we came back for lunch. Right on the water so great views of the boats going by and the little museum across the way. Good choices on the menu.

They have it all - a beautiful view on the lake, good selection of drinks and food (also for veggies - and you can ask them to transform even the meat options into the fully vegetarian ones) and friendly and patient...

Dona Goya was a perfect place to grab breakfast. They had a great selection of different pre-set meals and then you could sit at a table overlooking the lake with a great view. The food was tasty and delicious. The only con was that after delivering our food, the waiter never came back, so we ended up having to walk... More
