Stayed in one of the hotels nearby and did not want to go far for dinner, so we went to this place. It has a nice interieur. The service was good, they do speak a little english. Food was also nice, nothing spectacular, but good.

Description
Traditional and gourmet Guatemalan food set on a large "palapa"style architecture. Upscale traditional decoration, local music and waiters with typical outfits; great for turists, out of town clients, families and local foodies. A wonderful Guatemalan experience right in the center of the Hotel zone.
