The food is very good, not over the top french plates. During season, ask for "anacates" local wild mushrooms (july - novemberish)

We expected more from the because of the recommendations here in Trip Advisor. Everything was good. Service was good. The restaurant was nice overall. The sandwich was normal...something you can get pretty much anywhere. The french onion soup was superb but not served hot.

The view from the terrace is spectacular. The service wa slow and unattentive. The food was good but not great. The salad and dessert ws the highlite of the dinner. The main courses were good but not geat. The teak was overdone and the fish tasted packaged versus fresh. Overall, an OK dining experience that lacked value for the price.

Wished we could have got back there for dinner. We had a lovely lunch, Salad for my husband, croque monsieur and a shared plate of chips. Half a bottle of white wine. Fab, all well cooked, tasty, reasonable prices. Lovely roof top patio overlooking the ruins of La Iglesia and great attentive staff.....don't miss it!

Without curbside appeal, this really has the BEST patio in Antigua, overlooking la Iglesia. Try the salad nicoise for lunch with a lovely sauvignon blanc or the steak for dinner. The chocolate mousse will make you fall in live with this chef. There are other restaurants recommended on Trip advisor, but this is by far the one you will remember... More

I have eaten here on both trips to Antigua. The view is unique in that you see directly into the "ruins" of a church that faces onto the Parque Cental. Last night I had the steak bernaise, it was a giant tenderloin cooked perfectly. In the US you would have paid at least twice as much for a similar meal.

After a full morning of exploring the cobblestone streets of Antigua, I was famished but we passed by numerous restaurants including Tartines without finding one that had 'curb appeal'. However, their sign which stated 'best terrace in Antigua' stuck in my mind so we retraced our steps. It was a good decision ad once we clamboured up the winding spiral... More

I tried to quit you. I knew that with all the great food in Antigua I would run out of time and not need to go. And yet, on a quiet evening I found myself crawling up the spiral staircase to the terrace and you romanced me once again. First, we ate early, which is always a great idea if... More

Their steaks are divine and by far the best French fries in the known world. I choose this place over any place for the last 6 years.

We were looking for Flor de Lis but the map on my phone couldn't find it, nor could anyone from the area... we saw the sign "best terrace in antigua" which many places have... TIP: if a place says they have the best terrace, they HAVE a terrace that is probably amazing... if not the BEST in some way. This... More
