We were walking the street looking for a different restaurant, which we couldn't find, when we saw this place and decided to give it a try. We were very pleased. The food was delicious, the ambiance very special, and we have never had such sweet ladies taking care of us. We will go back next... read more

I've been a patron of Fonda for five years now and they never disappoint. The service is always a step above, as is the food itself. I personally give my highest recommendation to the 'subanik' - a traditional ceremonial stew that originates from the Kaqchiquel Maya - but I also enjoy the lomito (steak - please, not well done) and...

This restaurant provides the chance to try numerous traditional (including indigenous) dishes- in fact they have a plate that will allow you to try three rather unique Guatemalan dishes at once. The service is OK- and it is always packed with tourists. The food has spices and methods that are new to the US palette- which is really neat. It... More

Loved the ambiance and the garments that the servers wore/ Truly Guatemalan food. Loved the pepien and the roasted chicken. A little pricey but still good along with excellent service.

We decided to eat here during our honeymoon in Antigua. Our food was ok but we got tricked by the waitress who sold us more expensive drinks than we had ordered. I had ordered a Cuba Libre and the waitress suggested in very fast speaking Spanish a different type rum, this however turned out to be the most expensive rum... More

The cocktails were delicious and the food was great!! Authentic Guatemalan food in a cute little town. However, I was sitting by the gated window and had my purse right next to me. A bunch of vendors kept offering their local stuff, but one of them happened to get into my purse and grab my cellphone So if you go... More

That day I already ate an awesome meal in Antigua for lunch. This place beat that place, and the food experience. I went here with one new friend from the hostel. She tried the food here and she has good opinion about it. I think I concur with her that this place is really good. Slightly priced in terms of... More

After 17 hours travelling from Leon we really needed a special meal. The food was very good although a little expensive for Guatemala standards, around 40 usd.
