Best restaurant in town. Not so many meals in the menu, but quality and taste are guaranteed. A very kind staff, very helpful. You can tell ingredients are natural/organic, and mixtures of curry and spices will be part of the options. A place to enjoy.

This is without a doubt some of tbe best food you will find in Guatemala - definitely worth visiting Coban for. The prices are fair, the food is delicious and the welcome we received made the whole evening really memorable.

This was one of my favour restaurants in Central America. Great food, bursting with flavour, and great ambience. The owners are really helpful and friendly. Highly recommended if you are anywhere near Coban.

Surprise in Coban. The city doesn't look like it would offer fine dining but La Abidia makes the visit worthwhile. Interesting menu with everything cooked and served by the owner. Street corner location is a little noisy, but easily overlooked in view of excellent food and service.

La Abadia is the best restaurant in Coban in every possible way. Food is delicious (try the steak with pepper sauce!), it is carefully decorated and the owners would go out of their way to provide their clients with the best experience possible. It is a good idea to book in advance, as the restaurant is small (and that's part... More

This is a charming restaurant well worth a visit when in Coban. It has an intimate atmosphere given that it only has five tables. The food is very good. The steak with mustard and Sichuan pepper sauce was nice and cooked medium-rare--exactly as requested. The chicken with a pear sauce had a nice taste, but was a bit dry. Service... More

What a find in Coban! Our last night there we decided to try it and it was delicious. Had the Lomita Cobanero and it was cooked to perfection. The warm peach dessert was a refreshing end to a lovely evening. Everyone's meal was top rate and I would highly recommend it.

Very nice food and atmosphere for a special night out. Everything we ordered was very good, lovely presentation and high end quality. The owner is very nice and a local with good English. The margaritas are how they should be made and taste amazing!
