I have been going to this place since the late 80's I think, the bar is great, the live music also tends to be pretty good, and the pizza is a must try, this is more than a bar/restaurant, this is part of panajachels history.

For several years I've been visiting Circus Bar. Pizza is stil very good, but sadly they're not keeping up with the rest of the menu. The bar is the best, good liquor and prepared drinks. The salads look good.

I'm not a huge pizza fan, so got the chefs salad which was loaded with veggies-just what I needed. The pizza looked amazing with lots of thick toppings and gooey cheese. Partner ate every bit declaring it delish! Very busy popular place on Saturday night.
