Open at 8:00 AM. Maybe earlier, but I was there at 8:00 and it was open. Good Tipico breakfast. Insted of tortillas you get the little corn tamales made without any filling, I have eaten them many times, but I do not know the name....More

This low-key family-run restaurant is a good place to try out guatemalan specialities--like pepian, jocote, mole, and others. Very flavorful.

Our favorite restaurant by far in Xela. Very good and well prepared Guatemalan dishes (Jocom, Pepián, etc.) served by polite wait staff. Family owned restaurant, look for grandmother to stop in. Not to be missed if you are staying in Xela.

This is an excellent, friendly, family-run restaurant where you can taste the distinct flavors of various traditional sauces with well prepared meats. We had a family style meal and tried four dishes among three people -- all were great. Eat whatever the family recommends!

Only descent food in town without all the bizarre xela feel. Traditional indigenous food served with mayan hospitality.

We visited Utz Hua after a recommendation from friends of mine who enjoyed their meal. The prices seemed reasonable (I wouldn't say cheap though) and the portion sizes were perfect. We had two of the Pepian dishes and as we hadn't tried these yet were...More
