We enjoyed the pizza, and were dazzled by the Latin Music. The place is perfect for a lunch or dinner.

We loved this place for their cheesy pizza and live music. So many choices on the menu and what we had was delicious. I think it would probably be a cool place to hang later on in the evening as well for drinks!

So many fun things to look at in here! Cool bar filled with cool people. Nice Italian food. Got the spaghetti and meat sauce which was exactly what I wanted after a long day of boating and eating random tacos.

Ate pizza with other foodies and we decided we like shrimp pizza the best. The place was crowded and all customers were happy and smiling!

The restaurant and bar is a legend in Panajachel. Returning there since more than 20 years, I have to say it has not changed and it keeps quality up. This refers to good drinks -I recommend Cuba Libre with good Guatemalan rum-, the spaghettis are...More
