We tried the smaller restaurant which is cosy and very welcoming. You can see the food being prepared and the waitress was very helpful with suggestions. I tried the vegetarian pepian and my husband couldn't decide so opted for a tasting platter of two different soups, a chicken pepian and rice. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted delicious, especially washed... More

With several locations, I ate at the larger one near the plaza for a late lunch. Beautiful courtyard and service was attentive. The menu was broad and I wish I had started with one of their appetizers as the table next to mine had something that was mouthwatering. Portions are large and it's a place that would be fun for...

They had a decent vegetarian grill option and the our waitress recommended the grilled chicken. Our little one loved it so much, I barely go any. Definitely need the bigger portion if sharing.

There are 3 locations in Antigua. Over time I have eaten in all of them. The food is consistent. The decor is very comfortable. Service is above average and I like the Mya graments the servers wear. I like all the food but especially the chicken soup and the rotisary chicken. Prices are a little high but still good value.

Right in the hot spot in town. It's well appointed with nice decor, paintings, murals and other traditional Guatemalan items. We may have ordered the wrong thing, cheese fondue with mushrooms, which was just OK and served with bread sticks. We also had guacamole with chips. The chips were extra crispy and difficult to chew. Finally, the wine list was... More

We had a large party (~12 people) for a later-evening dinner. The wine list was extensive and the food menu had so many items that sounded very appetizing; everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals and the ambiance was great. My husband and I both thought the chorizzo here was some of the best we've tried; we ordered chorizo at another restaurant... More
