Because of its geographic location, half ways between San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa, Siguatepeque has become a favourite half way stop for those driving on the most traveled road in Honduras. As a result of this, most of the restaurants are located right on the road, on the outskirts of town, however there are also several options in town for those that are staying there. My selection of the best restaurants in Siguatepeque is the following:
An institution in Siguatepeque. Villa Verde is set in a nice informal, but very green setting and offers good Honduran home style cooked dishes. They also have a variety of produce, most of which is organic, for sale here. Good service and personal attention from the owner. Villa Verde also has an outdoor playground for kids and good meeting facilities for groups. Prices are very reasonable. Located about 5 kilometers outside of Siguatepeque going north towards San Pedro Sula, on the west side of the road, it is clearly marked and you can’t miss it!
Located right on the outskirts of Siguatepeque, on the south side of the main boulevard, in direction towards Tegucigalpa. This is one of the top Italian restaurants in Honduras and offers outstanding pizza and pasta. Friendly service, consistent quality and service and good food! Nice air conditioned area, as well as a children’s playground provide an oasis for those tired of being in the car during your trip between the big cities in Honduras. Open daily for lunch and dinner from 11:00 a.m. till 9:00 p.m.
Probably the best restaurant in the downtown area of Siguatepeque, El Corral features the best meat cuts you will find in town. Meat comes from the owners own cattle ranch and is fresh and tender. They have an extensive menu that includes seafood dishes also. Pleasant, quite atmosphere. They also have a nice wine list and a full international bar service. Open Monday to Saturday for lunch and dinner.
Not my favourite, but it is just about everybody else’s so I guess I must add it to the list! This restaurant offers a very complete buffet service, all produced with fresh produce from their own farms. The facility is located right on the main highway, and offers good clean bathrooms, quick service and a variety of tasty foods at reasonable prices. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a convenience store, where you can but fresh vegetables and fruits, home baked breads and ice cold drinks.
