We asked for drinks to see the sunset from their terrasse, which is a wonderful place. After having placed the order at the restaurant, we sat for 20 minutes before they came with only one of the drinks ordered (two bottles of water and two cocktails). We complained a first time to get the remaining drinks. Nothing came before another... More

I absolutely loved my meals here while staying at The Laguna Lodge. All vegetarian and all delicious. My personal favorites were the traditional Guatemalan breakfast each morning, the carrot cake for dessert (YUM!) and peanut udon noodles for lunch. Restaurant has tons of vegan and gluten free options, as well. They have a set menu for dinner each night that... More

A vegetarian restaurant with a very creative menu for all tastes. Top notch cuisine, service and atmosphere. The mojitos are the best I've ever tasted. The view of the emerald lake and surrounding volcanoes is spectacular. Do not miss this gem of a place!

I stayed at the Laguna Lodge for 5 nights and was delighted by the completely different, tasty and original 4 course dinners offered each night. I can be difficult to please and offended by the lack of attention to detail in most restaurants. Zotz delivered on my three conditions - organic, sustainable and cooked with love. The staff knew my... More

Local and organically raised veggies, freshly baked bread, and eggs delivered each day make for wonderful meals. Nice portion sizes and great variety, too. The four course meals are very good, but can be too filling if you're not a big eater. The a la carte menu is equally as tasty, but with more control over what you're eating.

The restaurant and bar at the Laguna Eco Lodge complete the total experience of this remarkable establishment.The subdued elegance and comfort of the interior, coupled with the majesty of Lake Atitlan and its surrounding volcanos provide a unique and exclusive environment in which to enjoy the vegetarian delights available. Can highly recommend the four course dinner menu, delicious and beautifully... More

We had breakfast and dinner here daily. The breakfasts were filling and delicious. I switched between the traditional guatemalan, granola and omelette. Obviously all accompanied with coffee grown on site at Laguna and freshly squeezed orange juice. The dinners were incredible, immaculately presented with great portions and delicious. All the food here is vegetarian, as a meat eater this might... More

The four course vegetarian meal at Zotz restaurant was quite extraordinary. Normally no meat means no meal to me, but Zotz had me a convert. All the flavours there are created with organic vegetables, greens and herbs harvested daily from their very own Tsampoj gardens. The food was high quality, healthy and incredibly tasty. My favourite starter a spicy Indonesian... More

We ate breakfasts and dinners here each night and enjoyed the changing menu and varied fresh flavours. While we are not vegetarian we found ourselves coming back for as many lunches as we could. Meals were consistently great with attentive service from Cata, Lety and Cruz.

The food is deliciously outstanding! The award winning Zotz restaurant delivers only the highest quality of local organic vegetarian food (even my carnivorous boyfriend didn't miss eating meat for a second during our stay). The produce is handpicked from the Lodge's organic garden and is delivered on foot. Farm to table dining is a trend that is taking many major... More
