La Taberna del Barrio is well worth the walk or tuktuk ride up to Barrio Norte! The setting is really beautiful, indoors and out. The food (lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch--with homemade bagels!) is yummy! Lori the owner is a wonderful hostess and the other staff...More

A hidden gem in the Barrio Norte area of Panajachel. Their fabulous menu energizes the lovely space. The rabbit was perfectly cooked, and served in a delicious white wine, bacon, and mushroom sauce.

I've liked La Taberna del Barrio since it opened, but this new bagel and lox Sunday special is just over the top. Very simple and delicious--the bagels are great. What I think of when I remember brunches in the past. Yummy.

The food and experience are truly great. The restaurant is near the center of Panajachel in a place that results in a convenient yet private local. The food and service are to rival any of the fine dining restaurants. A must visit.
