    Pan American Hotel: Local food

    by flynboxes Written Dec 16, 2011

    This is a great place to eat right in the middle of Zona Uno in Guatemala City ie: the historic quarter. You'll see locals as well as tourists here inside the grande ole lady.

    Hey..I have a soft spot for period joints and cannot get enough of them

    Favorite Dish: I just had a simple dinner of chicken tamales and my requisite Gallo beer but there is plenty more to choose from and would recommend this place to anyone visiting Guatemala City

  • Los Cebollines: Best Tacos and Salsa in Guatemala

    by TravelGirl79 Written Oct 5, 2011

    Absolutely ... hands down ... the BEST homemade salsa and tacos in Guatemala.
    When we are in Guatemala we will eat at Los Cebollinas at least 3 times a week because we cannot get enough of Super Ranchero taco platter and the salas that they make fresh at the side of your table. Each plate gets grilled scallions which are yummy! The atmosphere is very nice and relaxing and usually they have great AC which helps on those extremely hot days. You will not be disappointed going to any Los Cebollinas.

    Favorite Dish: Super Ranchero Taco Platter - Three different tacos - one with pork and salsa al pastor (tomato, onion and spices), another with beef, bacon, onion and green peppers and the third with chicken marinated in pibil, served with guacamole (sooo delicious!), frijoles charros (red beans, pork, tomato, onion, garlic and cilantro (sooo delicious!)

  • Ni Fu Ni Fa - Antigua: Ni Fu Ni Fa Antigua - Delicious!

    by TravelGirl79 Written Oct 5, 2011

    Each time we visit Antigua, I always have to go to Ni Fu Ni Fa. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is very nice. With most meals include the salad bar which is small but has all the essentials plus some delicious salads. Our meals have always been excellent no matter what we have ordered. The wait staff is always friendly and they do have English menus which they will offer to you without asking. If you are going to be in Antigua, do check out Ni Fu Ni Fa. It is a little more expensive but, well worth the money.

    Favorite Dish: Salad Bar; Half Chicken; Ni-Fu Ni-Fa Tipico Dish; Filet Mignon; Chocolate Cake

  • La Arepita Cafe: Best small cafe in zone 14 Guatemala

    by ritam_fc Updated Apr 4, 2011

    I found this cafe while visiting my friend in Edificio Santorini an apartment building in zone 14. I thought it was just a minimarket but they have a full menu, they have american and colombian food with some guatemalan dishes as well. I found it to be very clean and economical. It is close to the airport and to many of the hotels in zone 10, so it could be a good place to eat before a long travel day or before catching a plane. I had their Q20 lunch special which was delicious. I think the owner speaks english and they have a website www.clickguate.com, they also do catering and have other businesses on their website.

    Favorite Dish: I went back a second time and had their buffalo wings, they were the best I ever had. I think they sell their sauce to go, and one of the workers told me they sell it to the bars in zone 10.

    Sarita Restaurants: Along the highway

    by JessieLang Written Jun 6, 2010

    Sarita is a chain restaurant along main roads. The food was very good in the one where we stopped, and the ice and salads are safe. There is a guard in the parking lot keeping an eye on things.

    Favorite Dish: I really liked their tortilla soup.

    Cafe Condesa: A Must for Sunday!

    by cosmogypsy Written Jul 29, 2009

    Cafe Condesa is in the center of Antigua. It is very popular with foreign visitors because of the coffee and desserts. It is remarkable all the time, however, if you are in town on Sunday during brunch, go to the cafe. For about $10 you can get a delicious brunch buffee that includes coffee and juice. They have everything: Pancakes, Eggs, 4 salads, muffins, soup and dessert. It is well worth it and the atmosphere is beautiful.

    Favorite Dish: I lived in Antigua for a month so I was fortunate enough to be able to try a few desserts. I really liked the macadamian nut pie and the asian salad. I really would not have tried the asian salad myself but it was on the buffet.

    La Fonda de la Calle Real: Guatemlan Yumm!

    by cosmogypsy Written Jul 29, 2009

    This restaurant was excellent. We went for a late lunch and the chef came out to discuss the food with us. She explained to us how to use the sauces and the spices that came with the dishes. It was a wonderful experience and the restaurant has a great atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: We had the vegetarian Pepian which was delicious. I think my favorite was the black bean soup with all the spices they gave us.

    Cafe La Escudilla: great food and lots of it!

    by iwys Updated Nov 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Escudilla is my favourite restaurant in Antigua. I've eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here and they are all good. If you are a meat eater, the Paradilla Quetzal (mixed grill), including steak, pork chop, chicken, sausages, chopped tomato, avocado cream, black beans, bell peppers, onion and tortillas (yes, all that) is great. There are also plenty of vegetarian options and the salads are good and clean. A breakfast, including fried egg, 3 tortillas, salad, coffee etc, costs Q10 ($1.30). There are daily special meals, comprising soup, main course and soft drink, for Q18. This is the place to come when you are hungry.

    The courtyard eating area, with its lush vegetation, is very attractive and at the rear of it is Riki's Bar, which is one of the most popular travellers' bars in Antigua.

    Opening hours: 7am-midnight

    Favorite Dish: The Paradilla Quetzal. Although at Q62 it is just about the most expensive item on the menu, it's worth it.

    Restaurante Las Calmas: fresh lake fish

    by iwys Updated Aug 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurante Las Calmas is one of several bamboo shacks down by the lakeside at Panajachel, but I think it is the best in terms of value, quality of food and service. Whole grilled lake fish with rice and vegetables was great value at just Q25.

    Fridas: Mexican in Antigua

    by iwys Written Aug 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fridas is a lively Mexican bar-restaurant, decorated like so many restaurants in Central America nowadays, with a Frida Kahlo theme. I ate Norteño de Lomito, grilled tenderloin steak served with rice and beans, and it was very good. They offer a good range of cocktails and their margaritas are outstanding.

    Fridas is not cheap and main courses tend to cost around Q50

    Favorite Dish: It's two and a half blocks north of Parque Central, near el Arco

    Pizza Pablo: Whole-wheat and Mozzarella pizza in the middle of

    by spilosof Updated Mar 3, 2008

    If you are at the Lago De Atitlan and would like to have a real treat try this:
    Entering San Pablo from San Marcos direction, stop at the first houses and ask for Estuardo. He is a young “Gringo” (forigner) who decided to live and work in the village well known to all.

    He has a traditional stone built pizza-stove in a tiny room in his un finished house and makes the pizza mainly for take away on Fridays noon through Sunday.

    He happily made a pizza, especially for us with real Mozzarela and mushrooms, on a weekday’s late noon and set a table for us in his backyard.

    Our particular one was made in his home stove from pre baked dough… yet; it was a really good one.

    Guajimbo's: A superb breakfast

    by JimBob1948 Written Jul 18, 2007

    I am told that the name of the restaurant comes from "Guatemalan Jimbo's". Jimbo is not a native. You can enjoy streetside dining, right in the shopping district of Panajachel.

    Favorite Dish: Guajimbo's is a unique, small restaurant in Panajachel. They serve a breakfast that I had never tried before, of pancakes with caramel topping and whipped cream. It is wonderful!
