Last year my girlfriend and I visited Guatemala and spent a few days in Rio Dulce. When we were leaving we spent a few hours at the Sun Dog for some drinks before our overnight travel. The staff was friendly, the drinks and food were delicious and the overall ambience was nice. I'd highly recommend spending a. It if time... More

Enjoyed lunch here after a river and castille tour. Good pizza and appetizers, fun atmosphere, good price. Do not be put off by town crowds. You can park near restaurant safely as it is down a little street/alley just off main highway.

Sun Dog Cafe - The best place for American Italian food. We went therebecause we heard the pizza was delicious. And we were not disappointed in the least. This is the best of the Rio Dulce.

If it's authentic Guatemalan food you're after, keep walking. But if you want a friendly, fun bar with great deals on drinks (check out their 15Q daily cocktail special) and really good stonebaked pizzas, you're in the right place. Sundog is certainly a gringo bar, for sure, but that is a bit part of its charm - every town needs... More

Came to Sun Dog a couple of times during the day and in the evening. Every time the food was excellent. The vegie burger was one of the best I've ever had and the salads were huge. Beautiful place to watch the sun go down and the comings and goings on the marina.

This is my favorite place for food, socializing, even networking! The staff is nice, it's a great place for westerners as there are usually English speakers there every day. Great Wi-fi, they have a couple of TVs to catch up on sports. If your travel-weary, this is a place to hang-out and rest up. You'll meet an amazing variety of... More

A great visit during your time in Rio Dulce - the pepperoni pizza is amazing and they mix really strong, but mostly well balanced, drinks. Loved the atmosphere!

Staff are rude and obnoxious. They took about five minutes to stop chatting to their friends to serve me. I also notice this behaviour with other customers. One asked where I was from and gave a look of disgusted when I said Australia. The other got my order incorrect ( it was still vegetarian and I as starving so I... More
