Best local food we had that wasn't cooked in someone's home

Attentive service and high quality food make this place easily recommendable. Moderately priced traditional Guatemalan dishes and desserts -- we tried a variety of menu items and loved all of it.

This restaurant serves typical Guatemalan food, as well as international dishes. We ate here 3 times in a 4 day visit, which is very unusual for us. The pupusas were the reason for our returns; such a simple dish but so tasty. Food was tasty, service was excellent and the courtyard area was delightful.

Great atmosphere, and the walk up to the bathrooms on the second floor is lovely! One of the prettiest courtyards of any restaurant we visited in Antigua.

Gave this place a second chance but this last time was worst than the first. The food was cold, the chicken and meet tasted frozen and not fresh. I do not recommend this restaurant :(

We returned to this restaurant for the local food and local ambiance. On weekends many families are out for dinner and this is fun.

Told by our City Guide that this was authentic Guatemalan Food. Went on Friday night and no reservations needed. Food was OK. I had stuffed chilies. My wife had a chicken dish and the chicken was tough and frankly the parts of the chicken you would use to make broth. I would probably recommend going to a different location.

This was one of several visits to Fonda de la Calle Real. We have tried the "local" foods like pepian and ka kik...but several other places in Antigua make it better and are less expensive. We ate in the courtyard and shared the "Chapin Platter", which had tenderloin of beef (not sure it was tenderloin, but it was very tender... More

I tried the kakik and its flavor was very good, very similar to the home-made dish and very good service

This was the first time to eat here. They serve a number of local and regional Antigua and Guatemalan dishes. My son had the Suban-ique which was delicious. Just a little spicy with a unique flavor. I was trying to add some vegetables to my diet and ordered the dinner salad with chicken and steamed vegetables. The veges were excellent... More

The fonda has 3 locations, my favorite is the one off the Calle del Arco because it is less crowded. They have some of the best samplings of Guatemalan food, down to Christmas Ponche, only wish the service had been better last time I visited. It took them forever to bring the food and kept forgetting parts of the order.
