This is where I go when I want to relax, enjoy a great hamburger, and sip a few beers. There is a nice view of the Agua volcano and the vibe is relaxing with the open air set up. The prices are good and the staff are generally quite on top of the situation. The music mix is good, and... More

In a budget busting town like Antigua the Happy Hour at Lava is a pretty great deal. Sip some drinks on the terrace till 8 pm and move on elsewhere for food,

I thought they were supposed to have good burgers. This is our second winter here. The other times I've considered eating here, it was crowded and really noisy with loud music. So on a quiet Tuesday, we thought we would have lunch. Bad choice. I had the inside out burger. ( in my mind aka; juicy Lucy ). It was... More

My fiancé and I stumbled upon this place after going for a beer at the Whiskey Cafe and have gone every day of our vacation here. It is an upstairs terrace with great views of the volcano during the day and a lively fun crowd at night. Drinks are great, we snacked on the Coca Cola wings which were very... More

This is a great terrace with nice views of some old buildings in Antigua. The chicken wings are a must while enjoying some drinks, the daily happy hour is great to meet people or enjoy with friends.

Read Trip Advisor before you choose any restaurant in Antigua!!! We were headed to the highly rated Deli across the street but it was closed. We had heard good things about the Lava Bar when it opened a few years ago and decided to try it. We actually loved the wings - small in size but really unique Hot sauce.... More

Terrible meal, burgers and chicken wings were gross. Went with 6 friends and we were all disappointed. Try and avoid this place. Overpriced drinks. There's a log better restaurants in Antigua

Loved the selection of burgers at Lava. The terrace is great too. There are about 10 different burgers to choose from. We had a burgerv with champinones and swiss cheese and another loaded with bacon. My wife could hardly finish hers because they are so big. Service was good too. Prices were very good.

I'd heard good things about the burgers here so off I went with a raging hangover....only to be sorely disappointed. The service was good but the burger buns were dry as, I suppose this worked in their favor as we all ordered more drinks to get the bread down.
