Good food, average service, definitely check the bill before paying!

In our week in Antigua, we kept hearing the Panza Verde was the best restaurant in all of Antigua. So for our friends birthday celebration, and to celebrate the marriage of our friends, we booked a large dinner party. The food was for the most part good, but portions small.

When our bill for four in La Cueva arrived, it contained 3 cocktails and one appetizer we hadn't ordered. We told the waiter; he left, and returned with a new bill along with the backup order slips. While the backup order slips were correct, the new bill still contained the three cocktails we had not ordered. The waiter left again... More

While the food and service were very good and the atmosphere pleasant, diners should know that it is pricey, even for Antigua, and not a lot of food for the money. Secondly, without a menu listing, we were served water from liter bottles of Evian rather than pure water by the glass or pitcher which we later found was available.... More

My partner and I are both foodies and professional cooks. We grow our own organic food and prescribe to the Alice Waters theology of cooking. This restaurant is bar none the most beautiful we visited in Antigua; the setting, ambiance, gardens, music etc., all come together to create a fabulous dining experience. The service is impeccable as well, very professional... More

The "other side of the street" - where the privileged dine. A whole different perspective of Antigua. Stunningly big and beautiful, with fantastic live music.

Like many places in Antigua, you could easily pass Panza Verde, but oh, what an experience you'll be missing. It is a magical space - more candles burning than that scene in Phantom of the Opera. The soft golden light illuminates the catacomb like nooks and crannies of this space, bot to mention the gorgeous reflecting pool and small foundations.... More

We started our evening with gin martinis in the tiny bar, arriving around 6:30PM, before the rush, thus snagging the sofa right in front of the roaring fire. We did not have reservations, but they could seat us at 7PM, at a small table next to the pool. The setting at Panza Verde is truly beautiful, you feel transported. The... More

I have eating at this restaurant many times throughout the years and have never been let down. Every dish I have ever had has been phenomenal. The fine dining is matched by the exquisite courtyard and service.

Arrived early for our reservation and were shown to a small bar area. We orders aperitifs and sat with the only other occupant who was asleep, sprawled over the furniture and drunk. We felt extremely uncomfortable .15 minutes later the aperitifs had still not arrived. We were then shown to our table and waited yet another 15 minutes before being... More
