de lo mejor de la Antigua, one of the best in Antigua

Maybe the best of all, never been in the hotel, but the restaurant is amazing, and the ambience is so romantic. The cold nights in Antigua make this place a magic place to stay and eat.

We made reservations and got there on time. No body welcomed us and eventhough were stood in front of the receptionist for more than 20 minutes, she did not even looked at us. Finally my wife went ahead and chased a waiter. He actually paid no attention to her. After a very long wait th receptionist decided to talk to... More

Dear guest, We apologize for the confusion you had with your reservation. We remember this incident, because we were surprised to see that you and your family would leave so suddenly. First I´d like to comment that our reception is where the desk is, not the podium at the entrance where the menus are displayed. So when you were all... More

Meson Panza Verde quite simply had the best food we ate in Guatemala. As soon as we walked in, our hopes were raised - this place is beautiful with tables in a number of areas - around a courtyard and in several other side rooms. The menu was more international than in much of Guatemala but the food had great... More

Great steaks, pastas, and thai stir fry. This is possibly one of the most romantic places to eat on the planet! Love this place, I have to eat here every time I am in Guatemala. It is hands down the best place to eat in Antigua.

Panza Verde is beautiful. I walked by myself from the Plaza Central as it was getting dark - and it was ok. There are many different rooms and corners in this restaurant - cozy, romantic, elegant. I was by myself and there were plenty of waiters. I still felt I had to ask for help. The food was good but... More

Depending on where you stay, Panza Verde may be out of the way. However it's worth the visit. A genuine oasis. Stunning building with greenery, candles, etc. One can eat in the outside terrace, classy upscale dining room or 'la cueva.' Staff are professional and extremely sweet. Hardly a typical combination. Swiss chef offers lovely food that rivals US restaurants.... More

I thing is a gorgeous place. It was beautiful! I would definitely recomend it About the food.... I'm very picky with it and I think the restaurant doesn't have a lot of options.

We´re very sorry you thought our menu was limited... we actually worked on the menu recently to increase the vegetarian and gluten-free options, which are now fantastic - Lentil Cakes, Eggplant and Polenta, Thai Stirfry can now be served vegan, gluten-free pasta and bread... Please let us know if there is a part of the menu that you think needs... More

We came to Guatemala for our honeymoon and our first stop was the Meson Panza Verde in Antigua. We decided to eat at the hotel for our first night and weren't disappointed. We were sat by the pool in the back near the live piano and it was truly magical. I got the duck al orange and my wife got... More
