It is well said best things in life are packed in small packages. This is a small restaurant that seen from outside do not reflect the amazing experience to senses that awaits you inside. Modest, rustic but decorated accordingly, provides a cozy, intimate space designed...More

I visit Coban and couple of times a year and always look forward to going to La Abadia. It is a very quaint atmosphere and the food was excellent. You should not miss this experience. The owners are wonderful

Best restaurant in town. Not so many meals in the menu, but quality and taste are guaranteed. A very kind staff, very helpful. You can tell ingredients are natural/organic, and mixtures of curry and spices will be part of the options. A place to enjoy.

This is without a doubt some of tbe best food you will find in Guatemala - definitely worth visiting Coban for. The prices are fair, the food is delicious and the welcome we received made the whole evening really memorable.

This was one of my favour restaurants in Central America. Great food, bursting with flavour, and great ambience. The owners are really helpful and friendly. Highly recommended if you are anywhere near Coban.

This is a charming restaurant well worth a visit when in Coban. It has an intimate atmosphere given that it only has five tables. The food is very good. The steak with mustard and Sichuan pepper sauce was nice and cooked medium-rare--exactly as requested. The...More

What a find in Coban! Our last night there we decided to try it and it was delicious. Had the Lomita Cobanero and it was cooked to perfection. The warm peach dessert was a refreshing end to a lovely evening. Everyone's meal was top rate...More
