We did like this restaurant, which is better than most in Honduras. The decor is tasteful and nice. Staff is friendly and helpful, food is really good. It doesn't get much better than this in Honduras.

I tried a fish dish and it was great! Their desserts had fantastic presentation and flavor as well. Excellent service. The restaurant is also within walking distance of downtown, which makes it convenient to get to.

The food is excellent however the service is spotty because no one in the restaurant speaks English and it's difficult to communicate your wants or needs.

I've had dinner here several times on visits to Gracias. It's perhaps the 'finest' restaurant in the town, with a varied menu at moderate prices, in a nicely decorated dining room at attractive tables and chairs with cloth napkins and nice dinnerware. I think this...is in sharp contrast to a lot of places in town where you might be eating at a picnic table or a plastic table with plastic or metal chairs. It just enhances the dining experience to be in a bit nicer surroundings, and it certainly helps that there's a variety of menu items to choose from: beef, pork, chicken, fish, and pasta. All the meals we've ever ordered have been well prepared. I think this is a great place for dinner after a day out sightseeing, hiking, or at the hot springs.More

Because of the reviews I had read and that this was the first town I visited in Honduras, I had my first meal at this restaurant. I circled the block several times before I found it as there was a big truck parked in front...of the entrance and I'm glad I didn't give up looking !The atmosphere was charming and the soup a delight. I couldn't finish the entire bowl even though I really tried as it was so tasty!More

The steak sandwich, filet mignon, and chicken cordon bleu were nicely prepared and tasty for a recent family dinner. At lunch and dinner this restaurant is a nice respite from typical Honduran fare. We also ate breakfast here five times and alternated between pancakes and...a traditional Honduran breakfast (eggs, beans, ham, plantains, fresh cheese, and mantequilla - sort of like sour cream).More

Anafre (a hot bowl of bean dip and cheese) served with tortilla chips and salsa is one of the best and traditional dishes they offer. Salads are not great here but the vegetarian sandwich is pretty good! Beautiful decorations but kind of pricey and service...can be slow even when you're the only party at the restaurant.More

Food is pretty good and plenty. Breakfasts are enough to last you the whole day (depending on your appetite). For dinner, order a "parrillada"!

Great way to start the day. Excellent if a little slow service.
