This is attached to Hotel California where we stayed. They have excellent staff and excellent food. They also have live music at times. Highly recommend this place!

This place has a quaint atmosphere and is the bottom floor of Hotel California, which we stayed at and loved. The service and quality was outstanding.

Good place to spend some money because of the support Solomn's porch gives to those without homes in Guatemala. The food is ok and is not gluten free friendly. The margaritas are delicious. This is a small place, groups larger than 8 may have trouble finding a good seat. This is a popular place for people living in th area.

Stopped by for a beer and some great live music! There was a big group of girls coming in from FSU and the owner still came by and made sure my friend and I were ok and enjoying ourselves!

Soloman's Porch has great sandwiches andfried chicken. Feel good about eating there because some of their profits go into educational projects benefitting the Guatemalan people.

This was my third visit to Panajachel and the food at the Porch is nothing short of wonderful. It's a little like home cooking but with the Guatemalan flair. The pasta primavera is just wonderful - always makes you want to ask for more. To complement the food is a warm and welcoming atmosphere. From the wait staff to the... More
