Went here w 2 foreign friends and all 3 of our credit cards were cloned. The next day all 3 of us has fraud charges in 100s of dollars. The food is good, the place is nice, too bad they don't have good practices to prevent fraud. To begin with, they take your card to the back of the restaurant... More

Restaurant is very big with the tour groups. The food is typically Guatemalan. Definitely have a cup of coffee, simply delicious end to a meal. The toilet facilities do leave something to be desired, but the food does overcome that part.

There seem to be several locations in Guatemala city and Antigua. I went to the one in Zona 9 in the capital. I got the feeling that this is really traditional Guatemalan food, as they advertise. I had a kak'ik and it was really good. The live marimba contributed also to the atmosphere.

This was a pleasant lunch, though the food was uninspiring. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of our experience was the live band, which, with 3 players on a giant xylophone, was prettyy entertaining.

Lovely place for lunch and dinner, Arrin Cuan has several locations in different cities. Their menu may be a bit difficult to understand to foreigners due to the names of the traditional dishes, but a small explanation included in the 2 language menu helps a lot. Live “marimba” music, traditional decoration, and an excellent price makes this place a top... More

Our taxi driver recommended Arrin Cuan and we had no idea what to expect, other than it had marimba music. What a pleasant surprise! We appeared to be the only tourists in the place, which was full of families enjoying their Sunday afternoon. The host was super-friendly and treated us like royalty. From our table in the small courtyard we... More
