My family travel a lot, and the one thing I always look for when traveling are unique restaurants in each location. Out of all the cities and countries we've ever visited KIDS Restaurant is without a doubt the most unique and special place. The restaurant is actually part of an organization T.E.S.S. Unlimited which works with many underprivileged children in... More

By far the most original restaurant I went to! KIDS restaurant is a project which is part of the organization TESS Unlimited, situated in San Gaspar. Really cool to see how they create opportunities for the kids future careers trough a project like this. Next to delicious and varied food, there’s a really nice atmosphere in the restaurant as well... More

I live in Antigua and am a good cook. When I want a good experience and lovely food served by accomplished kids (with the help of fine international volunteers), I go on the shuttle ... up the volcano Agua and into a warm atmosphere of attentiveness. How fine for me not to have to cook and clean up afterwards. The... More

The KIDS Restaurant is an initiative from T.E.S.S. Unlimited, an organisation that helps children by providing them education. The kids practise their learned skills in the restaurant; they will help you using the English they learned and by being your waiters and cooks. It's an unique experience you can't miss when you're in Guatemala! You do have to make a... More

Last night's dinner at Kids Restaurant was better than many meals I've eaten in restaurants in Antigua! The main course, spinach and cheese cannelloni, was delicious. Ditto for the first course, a minestrone. Dessert was excellent -- apple tart with a freshly made crust, accompanied by berry ice cream. In all, a delightful meal -- for about ten bucks USD!...

I visited the kids restaurant in Antigua and I was really surprised by it. It looks really nice, the children are doing a great job and the food was delicious. Don't expect a 3 star Michelin restaurant, keep in mind that the kids have an age of 14, enjoy the setting! You can go there alone, and get a seat... More

The program helps students learn English and job skills while they work at the restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious, and the kids were so sweet. It was an excellent last meal out before we ended our stay in Antigua, and our group was their largest- ~70 people. A great program for the kids and a delicious gourmet meal!

Wonderful evening coming to the KIDS restaurant. Children were sweet and wonderful. The menu was a fairly eclectic Guatemalan. To be fair, this is not fine dining. It is not Panza Verde or any of the high end restaurants in Antigua. It is a wonderful opportunity to support an organization dedicated to helping children in San Gaspar Vivar. Would go... More

TESS Unlimited is doing such a great job by educating this children and prepare them for a better future. I could see they really liked working in this restaurant. The combination of theory and practice is what makes this organisation awesome!
