All the concept is naturalism, even the menus are in recycli paper and the food was direct from the farm. The taste was good, the service poor and the place normal. Maybe we come back

Not an extensive menu but the veggie burger was delicious and so was the hummus. Great vegetarian food. Service was a bit spotty but friendly and an excellent draw is the kids play area they have in the back. A beautiful place.

Off the bat I enjoyed that this restaurant was away from the 'zona viva' of the city where most restaurants of this calibre are located, although I was told by my friend that it did originally start there; where the owner not only cooked, but waited and cashiered all by himself. The restaurant has a charming aesthetic, somehow managing to... More

I live in Guatemala City and I eat at this place once a week. The have excellent choices but I usually have the lentils soup and the cannelloni, just excellent. For dessert they have a selection of cakes that you can not go wrong with any.

After eating several heavy (but delicious) meals made by my MIL, the fresh salad and great variety soups were a welcome change of pace for us. It was great knowing that everything on their menu was vegetarian, with options for vegans as well! We ordered the option that includes the house salad, a soup, and an entree as well as... More

We went there with two Indian dudes and the chef specially spiced the daily menu using curry, ginger and other cool stuff... I had an foodgasm with that spiced barley and exquisite falafel plus vegetables. You need to go there even if you are a mineralist.
