The restaurant is lovely with a marvelous lake Atitlan view. Service was excellent. We ordered Mohito, chicken soup and chicken fajitas. All were more than excellent. The gardens entrance fee was deducted from the bill. Very highly recommended.

We had 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts in this restaurant. Lots of variety on the menu. We ate out on the terrace outside...oh my...what a view of the lake and volcanoes. The service was the best we had in Guatemala and outstanding coffee. Love it.
