Four friends & I were stuck in Antigua for an additional 3 days after my wedding due to a snowstorm in DC. We had the opportunity to check out a lot of restaurants & Panza Verde was definitely one of our favorites.

This place, as other reviewers have said, is beautiful: a calm and intimate oasis. I had lunch and only ate a main course so my review is very limited. I chose robalo meunière (I think it may be sea bass in English but not absolutely sure) which came with a side of rice and vegetables: 2-3 baby carrots, 3 yellow... More

This is a very good restaurant that had the potential to be great but misses the mark. The restaurant is really beautiful. The service is great and the wine list is pretty good. The food was uneven - the vast majority of dishes were excellent but there were a few misses (including the crab cakes). Absent those few off dishes,... More

The food was great. Had a wonderful time. It is a nice place for dinner. Stayed at a hotel named Casa Rosal at walking distance. Really recommend this place

We stayed in Antigua for eleven nights, over Christmas and New Year’s, at a house with the same owner as Panza Verde. Although we didn’t stay at Panza Verde, we ate dinner there multiple times and they handled the bookings for our activities. It is a beautiful hotel. The food was excellent and the staff was very responsive to our... More

One of the best places in Antigua for a romantic night. The place is amazing and if you are lucky it will have live music.

We ate our Christmas dinner plus one other dinner here. The main dining area (NOT La Cava) is enchanting. The food was the best we had in Antigua, hands down! As in most of Guatemala, the prices are reasonable as well.

For sure, one of the best restaurants in town. I've ordered a lemon shrimp and it couldn't taste better. While reserving your table, ask for one outside, near their swimming pool area. As for it's location, it was a bit far away from central square, so I suggest getting a taxi or tuk-tuk if you're planning to go there for... More

On recommendation from our hotel, we went to Meson Panza Verde for dinner on our first evening in Antigua. We arrived as a children's recital of Christmas music was being held and we were invited to sit and listen. A waiter promptly asked if we would like wine while we listened. I only wish we had arrived a little earlier... More

Too expensive, it takes forever to get the order after the waiter take the wrong one. Probably my expectations were too high and the place wasn't enough.
