A very special evening

Panza Verde is a special evening that anyone visiting Antigua should experience. The setting is just beautiful; a stunning old building with the rooms filled with candles. The food was of a high standard for Guatemala, and the wine list was satisfying. We were there on a Friday night and a... read more

We are lunch at Panza Verde and while the setting is beautiful and the service quite good, we were thoroughly unimpressed with our meals. Ordered coconut shrimp which were mostly tasteless and my asian style ribs were only sort of OK. I expect a lot more from the kitchen when I'm paying $60 a couple to eat in Guatemala.

Meson Panza Verde is an amazing restaurant in an Antigua-style colonial building. From the rooftop floor you have a beautiful view. The service is very attentive and the food is of highest quality. Try the macadamia parfait for dessert!

Meson Panza Verde is located on the outskirts of antigua. Away from the busy an noisy central park. The medium walk or short drive is worth it. Like most restaurants and hotels at Antigua this Restaurant uses an old Spanish colonial style house with the classic central patio surrounded by porches with wooden pillars and tile roofs. The menú is... More

I stayed 2 nights in the hotel last year, but didn't have the opportunity to eat at the restaurant. This time, I didn't stay in the hotel, but had a lovely meal with my friend and her husband in the restaurant. On my second visit to Antigua, but staying in a different place, I made a beeline to Panza Verde... More

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

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.

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.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed our restaurant! We just recently tweaked the Thai Stirfry recipe to make it more authentic. We´d love to hear what you think of the changes when you come back! More

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
