Casual, decent drinks and food, lovely setting. The staff is nice and it's very pleasant. Try a Margarita or a gin and tonic. Add an order of nachos, and just relax and enjoy it all.

Overpriced, in my opinion. Super nachos were not super, kinda boring, came only with beef and cheese and not much else, plus not a heaping plate that I expected for the price. Beef fajitas were tasty but came with only two tortillas and no sides....More

Very nice views, that’s it. Drinks were the highest in town. Margarita was good but food lacked something.

We only had a Gallo beer and a nice table but the view was good as was the service. I highly recommend picking a place for sunset and just relax and enjoy. Lots of tchotchkes in this area and non-stop bombardment of vendors. So this...More

The Sunset Cafe is one of the most popular restaurants in Panajachel at the end of the main street over looking Lake Atitlan. It is perhaps the most well known restaurant in the town and I'm surprised it isn't on TA.
