Before tonight's visit of Restaurant La Ville del Chef by the lake in Flores I was in utter despair of yet another horrible restaurant experience. Yet to my utter surprise and amazement everything was outstanding as far as I was concerned, I will check it our again tomorrow to confirm I was not dreaming. First, the service was friendly and...

We came here twice in the one day. First to have Nachos & a beer, and second for dinner. Nachos were the best we have ever had. The view over the water was lovely. Dinner involved the local white fish. Done to perfection, and consumed with a nice white, this restaurant set the standard for our time in Flores. Gloria... More

I really don't understand why I came here. I was looking on TripAdvisor the best places to go and wanted to try the number 1 but got disappointed on what they offer and especially on their prices that are not justified at all. You can go to any other restaurant and pay half the price, it will be just as... More

Yes, we can only agree with all those great reviews - we had the white fish, local specialty, absolutely fantastic! The French fries that came with it were delicious and crispy, and the medium portion of fish is quite large, indeed we shared it in 2. We loved the personal touch and little chat with the owner. Staff speaks English!... More

My friends had the steak and I had the burger and fries. Everything was perfect and the service was warm, friendly and genuine. So glad we found this gem in Flores

The restaurant looks out on the lake so the view is good. The ambience is pleasant and to my surprise the service was good. The real reason I go out to eat is for the food. The local lake fish was very good, very well prepared and very well seasoned and the fries were terrific. The reader should be forewarned... More

The service we have had was great and the food delicious. The price could have been a bit cheaper but it was worth. Next to our drinks we received purified water for free (was offered us by the boss). And try the french fries. They are the best I have eaten in the last few years.

I have eaten there twice - June and October, 2016. The local fish is fantastic. The service is great and the staff a lot of fun. Good drinks, too. It is very peaceful and offers a beautiful view of the lake. It's right along the boardwalk by the lake.

Good fish. Nice service. Good pasta. Nice little housecat. Nice view of the lake. Good portions. That's all I guess.

The place is fine. They serve a white kind of fish that you can only get in Peten and I have to say they prepare it very well. We did have to wait way too long to get served but the taste made up for it. You have to try this fish.
