Three children (11, 9 and 8) and two adult women visited one of the Fonda de la Calle Real locations for a 7:30 dinner on a rainy Monday night. No wait. Very pretty setting. Attentive service. Vast menu (but no English translations, waitress did not speak English and wifi signal present but not accessible to guests per host). So cobbled... More

This was recommended to us by a local and it didn't let down. In Antigua, it is the best for local Guatemalan food. We enjoyed the food so much that we ate here for than once the week we were there. We've recommended this one to others, who equally liked it best of all the local restaurants!

It was nice to finally try this restaurant...the location is wonderful! The food? Not the best Guatemalan Food - some dishes were good, some others really off. I tried the chiles rellenos and they had too much egg on the outside and the filling was not rich of taste (compared to others I had). The vegetarian dish was not that... More

We had little intention of popping in Fonda de la Calle Real whilst we visited the Arco de Santa Catalina just up the road but then got caught in a horrendous rainstorm so rushed for cover. I thought whilst we sat out of the rain we might as well have a couple of beers so headed inside. I quite like... More

I went here after a magnificent hike up Pacaya volcano, with some Americans AND Europeans. One of the women had head about it on a travel website. We were all staying on different ends of Antigua and this place was perfect and central. As in...we got there at 9pm. The food was of a very high quality, super reasonable, and... More

A glorious setting for a beautiful lunch (50 meters from the main city square). The first restaurant I have been too on these travels that has a county and local food specialty list on the menu (in English!). The local chicken & rice soup soooo delicious as was the local stuffed bell peppers accompanied with a yummy assortment of condiments... More

We tried the local food and it was great. Nice service. Was a little out of our comfort zone and didnt know what to order. The waitress was really helpful. Had a nice quiet dinner with family and friends

Nice decor and good service but this is a restaurant that uses President Clinton's visit there as its claim to fame. The food is simply awful- sorry. Maybe it's easier if I explain it as a chef. They cook all their sauces totally bland and when you decide you want the beef, chicken or pork variation, that's when they dunk... More
