Restaurant Flor de Lis – Guatemala City

November 2019

I visited the restaurant during my three-week trip to Guatemala.

According to Tripadvisor, the restaurant ‘Flor de Lis’ is the only one in Guatemala City to offer a multi-course gourmet menu.

After the restaurant idea failed in Antigua, the Flor de Lis team is now trying their luck in Guatemala City. The restaurant is located in a safe nightlife area in Zona 4, next to many other restaurants and bars. The area is mainly visited by young people.

I enjoyed a multi-course menu inspired by the Mayas. The implementation of the ideas was not always successful, so I rate the restaurant 13 out of 20 Gault Millau points. The kitchen team still has a long way to go to get a Michelin star.

Every course was explained while serving, but it was difficult to record the courses even with the provided note sheet. Therefore, I asked if the information for this website could be emailed to me, which the waiter affirmed. I did not receive any documents afterwards, despite of an additional request. Therefore I show the photos of the courses without comments.

The wine pairing consisted of only three wines and was therefore far too expensive.

With the tip, the bill was GTQ 770, which was equivalent to about USD 100.
