Pequenos Pecados

San Pedro La Laguna, Atitlan, Guatemala

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

In Panajachel I heard from several friends about an Italian restaurant in San Pedro that was highly recommended. Everyone made a big deal about it, so I thought I should check it out.

So on my recent trip to San Pedro La Laguna I made it a point to eat there. Pequenos Pacados is the name and it's on the main drag in San Pedro next to the health food store.

A small, manageable restaurant, they have survived the many ups and downs of the business in this tourist town. There are a total of twenty chairs, so it is very quaint.

All of our books lead to adventure. Don't miss out on yours!

Pequenos Pecados has a relaxed atmosphere and the lake is just beyond the building across the street. You can sit here and people watch as you eat your delicious meal.


A yummy pizza!

My friend ordered an individual Margarita pizza for 44Queztales, about $5.50USD. Doesn't it look great?

My Saltimbocca

My Saltimbocca

I was pleased with my 70Q (about $8.75USD) Saltimbocca. It was very well prepared and had good flavor.





Saltimbocca is Italian for "jumps in the mouth" and is a very popular dish in southern Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Greece. Made of veal, it is topped with prosciutto ham and sage.

With a couple of glasses of red wine, my meal was complete and the tab was 110Q (about $14USD).

Cafe Pequenos Pecados serves various preparations of fish, pork, beef and pasta.

This was a great meal in a lovely setting for a very reasonable price.
