There is a jewellery store in the front with a small and quaint restauarnt in the back. The menu is very limited but the choices are prepared dailey. The plates are truly gourmet style dining. Portions are small but very very good. Usually the owner is on the floor to chat with his guests. Service was excellent. Visited April 2013

I came here hoping to find something warm and that's exactly what I got. In the wilderness of Semana Santa I found a place to relax, drink an amazing trago and watch videos of the greatest hits of a musician that will never get old to me. This place is a a bit pricey to the wandering eye but you... More

Lex Cargo is has designed jewelery for the rich and famous, and has retail locations in Coral Gables, Miami and Madrid, Spain. However Antigua is his home and his place to relax and entertain his "best friends for a night". He... More

How do I descibe this experience? The owner LEX is an artist with his food, decorating and the jewelry he makes. He has not only made personal items for royalty & stars but probably has had the WHO;s WHO of the world in this establishment. Music plays all the time keeping the tempo upbeat. The trip to the CARGO ROOM... More

I have walked past the Cargo room for at least three years. I thought it was a jewelry store. That is what you see, Jewelry. Lex the owners is a designer of many things and Jewelry is one. Food is his next interest. You walk past the Jewelry and into a small room that seats maybe 20 people. Decorated kind... More

We came by The Cargo Room quite accidentally and were graciously invited in by the owner/operator Lex Cargo. An eclectic menu that includes recipes from his Grandmother's kitchen---with his added creativity--and other menu delights! Delicious and beautifully presented. The restaurant is coupled with a section of his amazing jewellry creations. A must for a visit and a meal!
