We get inside by chance. 30 quetzal menu announced. Once inside there is nothing about this menu @ 30. We ask for, a new menu appears, but not same as announced outside, second try, it comes a 3rd menu, bingo it's there. Food is fine, nothing special, pizza.... Worse than average. Fist time in Guatemala I see the charge for... More

Saw this place as I was walking and stopped by. The food was really good but the customer service was the best. I barely got up to go to the bathroom when a waiter was already asking me what I needed. They were all friendly and the food was delicious.

We took 9 people to Valentinos for a late lunch one day. two of us had sausages, a few had guatemalan dishes and one had a hamburger. The hamburger was passable but not great. I would stick with Guatemalan items. Nice atmosphere and nice staff. Very reasonable prices. Highest recommendations goes to the simple chips and guacamole. Add some of... More

This restaurant offers extremely cheap specials, we had the grilled fish, which was served with guacamole, nachos, rice and boiled vegetables and it was absolutely delicious! And also included soup as starter and it only costs 30Q!!! Definitely a must eat place in Panajachel

The front of the restaurant is open to the street, and it is a marvelous place for people watching. The first meal was very satisfying, and I so much enjoyed the setting that I returned often.

We really liked Valentino's-there was a power outage in Panajachel so they served us by candlelight. The menu is extensive, and when they have electricity they also have Wi-Fi:-) The only challenge we had was with one waiter who was extremely rude and impatient. The owner (his relative?) came by and was very helpful and friendly, apparently in apologies for... More

Ordered the pinchos de pollo and was presented with a fine looking plate (not counting that the portions were way too big). The pollo was cooked perfectly, the sauce was close to out of this world, the guacamole was fine and the backed potato had just the right mixture of topping. The garlic bread was bland but with all the... More

Seeing some harsh reviews, don't seem warranted. We had pizza and salads. Both were great. Pizza in Panajachel is definitely not like a Pizza Hut, but is more homemade and good. The salad was huge, great avocados. Service was ok. They added the tip automatically on a group of 4, so watch for that. And they charged us for a... More

Avoid avoid avoid!! Ordered fajitas and feel like I ate flavourless cement.... And it cost more than most places. Advertised as a pizza and pasta steak house with no pizza or pasta on the menu....

We have eaten at many different places in Pana for many years, and I have yet to encounter a worse restaurant. Maybe the steaks are good, but we ordered pizza and lasagna, and both were really nasty.The pizza was doughy and undercooked. The "lasagna" was cold, and after I sent it back for reheating, it was no better. The "noodles"... More
