First Review by PaulaDreiner

Worth the trip - Edit

Flores is ringed by a road that often floods, and when it floods it doesn't drain. Maracuya sits on that road, so the only way to access the restaurant is by weaving through back roads and then walking across wooden planks that sit above the sidewalk and keep your feet dry unless you exercise incredibly poor judgment and step into the street. Thus it was that by the time we found the restaurant, my shoes were thoroughly soaked.

We were greeted by an Angeleno who was able to explain the menu to us in our mutual Californian language. There weren't a lot of options, but he offered his recommendations, and everything sounded good. We headed upstairs to the deck.

It was too dark to see the water, and in fact the upstairs was so poorly lit that we really couldn't see what we were eating. We were the only customers in the restaurant, surprising as the food was pretty good (other than the clumpy cold pasta...apparently the cook was unfamiliar with the process of preparing spaghetti).

The decor is pleasant, plant-filled and relaxing. Unrelated to the food: there are a couple of bathrooms at one end of the deck. Adjacent to those is a hole about 3 feet in diameter. So if you're not careful when you step out of the bathroom, you could easily end up on the hard floor below. Things you would not see in a restaurant at home but part of the experience!

Pros: Plant-filled setting, Good veggie food, Really nice people working there

Cons: Fairly limited menu, Too dark to see what we were eating!

A little piece of paradise - Edit

Best veggie place in Flores and in Guatemala! The view from the rooftop is stunning, there are trees and plants everywhere making the atmosphere so calming and chilled. Staff is lovely, they prepare everything themselves so waiting time is a bit more than usual. The vegan pancakes were delicious, especially the toppings served with it - homemade jam, local fresh fruit and nuts and maple syrup.

like paradise - Edit

A small and slightly hidden gem on the island!
The food is great and the view is amazing. Really relaxed place.
Everything is freshly prepared. They have a daily varying food menue and offer a wide range of smoothies and fresh juices (or you create your own). You also get a fruit platter before your food is served.
Also the staff is really kind! Definitely a must-go-to!

Pros: THE VIEW, the menue, freshly made food

Definitely recommended - Edit

A very nice restaurant, a little bit hidden, but definitely worth going. They have tasty smoothies and always some good food options on the board. Everything is freshly made, so it may take some time, but it is worth waiting. The terrace on the top is very nice with a good view on the lake. Definitely recommended!

Great restaurant! - Edit

Little restaurant with cool interior. It's a little hidden, you have to go down one small street and go to the left. One can sit on the rooftop with great view on lake Petén Itzá. Menu is available in English. I chose Avocado Pasta and the portion was huge and tasted amazing. Definitely recommend!!

Pros: many dishes can be made vegan, cool interior , they use Macaroni Spaghetti as straws!!
