During the first few years we served guests at our family’s dining room table, preparing meals from our personal kitchen. It allowed us to interact on a more personalized level with our visitors, as well as provide them an opportunity to meet each other and exchange travel stories. It was named the ‘friendship table’. Today, although the restaurant has booths and individual tables, we encourage guests to continue meeting for dinner every night. Dinner is served between 6-7:30pm, and we prepare a typical Guatemalan dish with a vegetarian option. These dishes need hours of preparation, which is why we require reservations before 4pm. Also you can order from our lunch menu for dinner and reservations are not required.
Breakfast is served a la carte from 6:30am, with a variety of options such as the Guatemalan breakfast, homemade yogurt and banana pancakes. Reservations are not required. There are also several lunch options on our menu. If you are headed to Tikal before we open for breakfast, we can prepare a box lunch for you.
Rosita’s famous desserts include chocolate cheesecake, apple pie, fried plantains with vanilla ice cream and guava pie made from fresh guavas in our garden. Among our selection of drinks you will find allspice tea, fresh-squeezed pink lemonade and depending on what’s in season, perhaps even Pitaya (Dragon fruit) juice. Enjoy a frozen margarita or piña colada while viewing the sunset from the veranda… The restaurant is open air, with a spectacular view of our garden and Lake Petén Itzá
