We have diverse taste in food and all loved this restaurant, we sat on the front patio with views of Lago Peten Itza. Most folks loved their nachos and I loved their baked white lake fish. Their frozen mojitos and daiquiris were really good as well. The restaurant also offers free (and fast) wifi.

I was there 1,5 weeks ago and had an absolutely lovely vegetarian burger! And the portion was huge and the view was amazing. What really made our visit here was the owner. It was actually my birthday so my sister asked the owner behind my back if he had some chocolate cake, but he didn't. That was no problem though,... More

We wee there twice during our trip to Tikal. The service is very friendly, courteous and helpful. The food is very tasty and with the wonderful view of the lake of Flores a wonderful finish after impressive days. We enjoyed talking with the owner and got some tips and suggestions about Flores and we definitely did not expect to meet... More

Nice view of the lake, menu with local dishes and reasonable price. Was busy being a holiday but staff was very attentive and friendly. Went for both lunch and dinner.

The restaurant takes pride in trying to source local food and spices and does a great job at presenting this in the final product. The menu selections were varied and would please even the fussiest of dinners. The veranda table offered a nice view of the water and the local street scene. The staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The... More

Before tonight's visit of Restaurant La Ville del Chef by the lake in Flores I was in utter despair of yet another horrible restaurant experience. Yet to my utter surprise and amazement everything was outstanding as far as I was concerned, I will check it our again tomorrow to confirm I was not dreaming. First, the service was friendly and...

We came here twice in the one day. First to have Nachos & a beer, and second for dinner. Nachos were the best we have ever had. The view over the water was lovely. Dinner involved the local white fish. Done to perfection, and consumed with a nice white, this restaurant set the standard for our time in Flores. Gloria... More

I really don't understand why I came here. I was looking on TripAdvisor the best places to go and wanted to try the number 1 but got disappointed on what they offer and especially on their prices that are not justified at all. You can go to any other restaurant and pay half the price, it will be just as... More

Yes, we can only agree with all those great reviews - we had the white fish, local specialty, absolutely fantastic! The French fries that came with it were delicious and crispy, and the medium portion of fish is quite large, indeed we shared it in 2. We loved the personal touch and little chat with the owner. Staff speaks English!... More
