We went to the Guacamaya for my birthday lunch, after hearing how delicious the food was and that the staff and owner were great people. There were four of us in our party and everyone loved their meal. I started with a great salad and...it was filled with all kinds of veggies. My shrimp pasta dish was absolutely wonderful. The shrimp were big and meaty and there were Many in my dish. My husband and I shared an amazing coconut flan for dessert and loved it. The restaurant is darling and the scenery is very pretty. A great place to relax and chill. The pricing was a really good value for the food, it was less than some other restaurants we visited and we received a lot more food.More

Guacamaya's restaurant is a place for special occasions. The food, atmosphere and service are all perfect. The price is perfect for the quality, flavor and experience. I usually have their beef tenderloin with garlic herb butter; it's a true treat.

We had a marvellous meal here, I regret not ordering the steak special but had an equally nice Chicken Cordon Bleu that was cooked perfectly. Highly recommended.

We ate here on our week visit to Playa Jonquillal. The food was excellent, especially the specials, and there was a large variety including excellent seafood. Service was attentive as well. Located on a hilltop, it was quiet and cool.

We are staying nearby and have been to Restaurant Guacamaya a number of times. It has a very inviting layout, excellent service and a much wider selection of menu items that most restaurants in this area. The owners are Swiss; so, in addition to seafood...specialities, there is zurichgeschnitzeltes with rosti (beef in a delicious sauce with potato pancakes, spaghetti carbonara, etc...There are specials every night that are interesting and good.More
