Great food here, what stands out are the fantastic staff employed here. They were so polite and gracious to us. The beach bar by the lake is also a must a great spot for a pre dinner drink and the view is incredible.

We went there for a late lunch and maybe that's why the restaurant was nearly empty and exuded some kind of austerity... Nevertheless, it's a very impressive stone building full of character. We shared a broccoli and cheese soup followed by a plate of mixed tortillas (chicken, beef and cheese) accompanied by the usual guacamole and beans. Fresh and tasty.

Our guide took us here for lunch and it had to be one of the best meals we had in Guatemala. The tortillas were so good and the food was so fresh and tasty. Wish we could've came back!

Posada food is good and decently priced for what it offers. This is my go-to place when in need of a very nice meal in Santiago. Would highly recommend it to people who are coming to Guatemala for the first time; their sanitation standards are top and you can eat fruit, veggies, and just about anything without worrying about that...
