This is my favorite restaurant in Guatemala. The food is delicious and economical; the staff is friendly; the view is spectacular! I love their chicken dishes and their Italian cuisine. The owners are some of the nicest people I have ever met. I thoroughly enjoy stopping here on my way to Panajachel!

This is the perfect place to stop and eat breakfast/lunch/dinner before coming to, or going from Panajachel. The view is incredible, the food is delicious, and the owners Rocio & Carlos are super welcoming and warm people. 5 stars!

This restaurant has such delicious food I actually stayed in solola an extra day to go back for more. The view is the best as it is up on the hill in solola hence the entire lake is visible. The unbelievably great service and Michelin Star food is worth a stay in solola which does not really have many attractions.

We stopped here on our way down from the highway to Panajachel. The view is just amazing. It is the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee. Service was excellent as well. We also got the opportunity to meet the owner, a very nice person to have a chat with!

As you arrive to Solola, you'd be tempted to continue to find a better view over the Lago Atitlan. Well, there isn't! The surroundings are breath-taking: six volcanoes, the lake, Solola... And the family is lovely. Don't forget to try their coffee while enjoying the view.

Food was good. We had grilled chicken and veggies with watery mashed potatoes. The fried plantains were a hit. The delicious lime aid was my favorite. The bathroom was in demand after a three hour trip from GC and it was tiny and almost inaccessible for an average sized person. There is never any toilet paper in this wonderful country... More

The view is stupendous, can't be beat. Clean, with an extensive menu and some of the best food we've had in the country for a very reasonable price. Easily accessible on main road from Guatemala City/Antigua to the lake, but still very quiet inside and not affected by the traffic outside. Super friendly staff. Well worth stopping by on your...
