The thing that gets highlighted in this place is the kindness and respectful waiter. The prices in the menu are affordable and did not feel overpriced. The food itself was ok. I ordered the Boeuf Bourguignon(French Beef Stew) and it was somewhat close to it. The beef was not so tender and the broth was a bit more in the... More

Nice place, nice location, inside a museum. Food... just fine, nothing spectacular but good taste. Regarding the service, they are very kind and they are filled up of good intentions, but it is not enough, they obviously need a good management, they din't bring the menu to the table on time, with only 2 tables occupancy they send my food...

Food is ok at this venue, could definetely be improved. The fact that the restaurant is inside a Pre Columbus art museum should be an asset, but for some reason they don´t seem to know how to exploit it. Location is good. In front of the Convention Center near Zona Rosa area, and hotels like Sheraton and Hilton Princess in... More

Tip: If you are visiting the National Museum of Anthropology David J. Guzman (also known as MUNA) this is the perfect spot to have lunch (menus start at $7) or eat a snack. Pros: Extremely attentive staff, convenient location (next to the Muna museum), tasty food, good value for money. I recommend the panini. They are really good and they... More

Just remember: the same team that run the best hotel in Suchitoto also runs this restaurant. The food is superb, and the service is pleasant, too. After several hours of going around the museum, it was wonderful to walk into a good restaurant.
