This is a traditional Guatemalan restaurant and the food is good, not outstanding. A little touristy.

We wanted Guatemalan cuisine and found delicious choices here. We had Gallo en Chicha, a delicious chicken dish in a plum sauce (almost a mole, to me). [I asked for the recipe for the sauce, it was so good - and the manager was quite...More

We definitely expected more from this based on the reviews and the Lonely Planet recommendation (and the price!!). It was really not good at all. Not bad, just very mediocre. We had a better meal at a local spot in Zona 1 that was half...More

We came here at the recommendation of a friend. After arriving at the Westin around 8:00 PM, this was a great choice being just a couple of blocks away. We weren't overly hungry, so we just opted for an assortment of appetizers, all of which...More

Stayed in one of the hotels nearby and did not want to go far for dinner, so we went to this place. It has a nice interieur. The service was good, they do speak a little english. Food was also nice, nothing spectacular, but good.

Found this place through positive reviews online. The food was mediocre. I ordered the grilled pork tenderloin and it was very chewy. What was not satisfying was the cleanliness of the restaurant. The table cloth was not replaced after the previous guest, and the little...More

We visited Kacao near the end of January with a large business party. The atmosphere is very interesting with a large tent-like canopy overhead that gives you the impression you are inside a giant tropical hut. Authentic food, fairly pricy for Guatemala. The appetizers were...More

Traditional and gourmet Guatemalan food set on a large "palapa"style architecture. Upscale traditional decoration, local music and waiters with typical outfits; great for turists, out of town clients, families and local foodies. A wonderful Guatemalan experience right in the center of the Hotel zone.
