I’ve visited Panajachel multiple times, and the sunset cafe is one of my all time favourite places to go for lunch! The view is lovely, and I highly recommend their mojitos and fajitas.

DON'T COME HERE. Worst chicken tacos too greasy ... tacos are better on the street. We ordered burritos and were rice with sauce in it. Nothing to pay Q60 for 3 tortillas with rice.

Has the best view in Pana, but that's all, food is regular, not great. It's good to go for a couple of drinks just to enjoy the view, you can get better food in other restaurants on Calle Santander.

Everything about this experience was great. The location and vote only added to it. We had a very large group and were easily accommodated. God was delicious and enjoyed by all.

The Sunset Cafe is one of the most popular restaurants in Panajachel at the end of the main street over looking Lake Atitlan. It is perhaps the most well known restaurant in the town and I'm surprised it isn't on TA.
