We come to Guatemala every other year with the family. One of the highlights of the trip is a visit to La Madia Cancha. This steak house has been around for a long time and offers consitently great steaks and all the trimmings. The meat is cooked perfectly to order, the service is great and the prices are not as...

One of the best steakhouses I have been to recently. The place was really busy at lunch time, which is a good sign. We ordered avocado salad which was very good, and my selection included a beef soup which was very tasty. We ordered several different cuts to share and all of them were very good. Even the garlic bread... More

Best steakhouse in the city. The restaurant has such a great reputation that the parking space in front is not enough so they have 2 extra parking lots a block away and facilitate transportation to and from the restaurant . Steaks include one side: a fresh salad, french fries or mashed potatoes. Have tried all three and I choose whichever... More

Skip the churrasco with national meat and go straight to the imported steaks- my favorite being the bife de lomo. We also ordered a "light" starter with all the offal typically served in Argentina- chichulinnes, rhinnones, blood sausage, chorizo. Excellent and perfectly cooked. 2 enthusiastic thumbs up.

They offer excellent selection of steaks, chicken, Seafood with individual plates or combos for 3 people or more. The grilled combos we enjoyed competed for the best I've had in the city. The service was without a doubt first rate. We'll be back.

This is one of the best meat restaurants in Guatemala. You also have to try Casa Escobar, Madre Tierra and La Fonda de la Calle Real. Generous, delicious rations. You have to go there with all your family. Incredibly tasteful!

That may not be a very high bar, but this was a legitimate imported Argentine bife de lomo, cooked perfectly that I would have been satisfied with in Bs.As. Really really good. Sides looked just like the real deal in Argentina as well- super simple. Very reasonably priced and great service topped it off.

My experiences in this restaurant have up to now always been very good. This time, though, I was very disappointed. They could not manage to serve a steak medium rare. First, they brought it 3/4, then they brought it barely sealed. Perhaps even worse is that the waiter originally refused to change the steak! Then a blond lady came along,... More
