We eat here often when in Antigua. The food is excellent and authentic. The service is as good as it gets and for us, it is a comfortable place to dine.

I had two meals at Fonda, both were very tasty. Service was great, fast and pleasant. All of the Guatemalan food I tried here was good. But I have to say that my favorite thing on the menu was the horchata. Probably the best horchata I've ever had... amazingly good.

The food was delicious, and yes, maybe the food is pricier than comedores or street food but people in the US pay 25-30 dollars (and much more) for mediocre food and service. The food here was delicious, the service was one of the best we've had and they have vegetarian options. My husband and I each had a different dish,... More

We stumbled onto this beautiful restaurant as it happened to be next door to the hotel we stayed in during our visit to Antigua. The staff was courteous and ever so gracious in breaking down the menu for us, and giving us their personal recommendations. I'll share this little secret with you... if it's in season (they only start to... More

If you want to try real guatemalan food, this is the place. Try: guacamole, chicken pipian, queso fundido con chorizo, tamales. Great food, good prices and excelent service.
