They have an interesting arrangement - bakery up to 6:00 p.m. and a restaurant thereafter. The food was very good (I had the spaghetti bolognese and garlic bread), and reasonably priced.

This location is a panaderia by day and a restaurant by night (not open every night). One day when we were there, the panaderia was open but not the restaurant. The other day, the panaderia operated until 6 pm and the restaurant from 6 pm on. Three of us ordered sandwiches made with a round whole wheat roll, the same... More

This is the perfect restaurant for everyone and everything. When I was starving without "Quetzales" the host of the restaurant accepted dollars and solved my hunger. Lemonade and Cream spaghetti with shirimps were just perfect. The host was so kind and the food was so delicious. Additionally, its atmosphere was so "Florish" unlike the other restaurants. Lots of local people... More

We stopped by for an early dinner and were not disappointed. All we had were a couple of cold Gallos and pastas. The pastas were really good. We loved the two sauces we ordered and the relaxing ambiance. Service was great and prices too.

I liked La Albahaca very much. They only open for dinner so be aware of that. The food was superb. The caprese sald was delicious. So was my salmon entree which the presented and prepared perfectly. Service was attentive and the owner was on the floor to greet me and ensure I was happy. Prices were good too.

My visits to Peten are often. I have enjoyed countless meals here, the apetizers is amazing. Garlic compound butter and fresh bread, complimented with whole garlic and peppers in olive oil. They have delicious pastas, steaks and salads. Always a great dinning experience.

For a restaurante that only opens in the evenings we did not consider that this one lived up to the reputation you read about here. At least not with the Caprese salad and the Carbonara pasta. They were average, but still carefully prepared. I missed real cheese in these plates, since the Caprese only had the shredded parmesan cheese that... More

A fantastic small restaurant with really friendly service. Attentive stag and menus in Spanish and English all food was tasty, fresh produce, well presented and tasty. Excellent pricing and super clean and well presented premises. We had the bread that was super fresh, curry vegetables and a pasta fish. All portions enormous. The place to eat when in Flores.

The food here is pretty good, I recommend the bacon wrapped filet mignon, and *definitely* get the bread. The staff is very nice and attentive. I eat here almost every time I pass through the area.
